I’m back from the Paul McCartney concert! Time for the recap:
Let me go back a few weeks to explain this. About a month ago I
found out that Paul McCartney would be doing some type of live
performance in NYC to promote his new album Memory Almost Full. Any
large-scale world tour would be postponed to next year due to "personal
issues" (his divorce from Heather Mills). So being a huge Beatles/Paul
McCartney fan, I did some intense research until I found out the
details of what would be going down.
I found out that the show was going to be a small-scale "secret"
show about two weeks ago and that I’d have to win tickets through a
radio station contest in order to go. Only a few hundred contest
winners and invited guests would be given tickets. So after looking
through the websites of nearly every FM radio station from the
country’s major cities, I finally found a contest where you could enter
a raffle to win tickets by correctly answering 20 questions about
Paul. I didn’t win. But my friend Steph did, and she offered to take
me. Amazingly, my friend Bret won as well and offered to take my
brother Justin. So now we had 3 people from CT’s smallest town attending a concert that thousands of people from around the world were trying to go to, and I was one of them.
More below the cut.
