        Wow! I'm tempted to bid on the Sioux Falls meet-and-greet!!

          bidding has increased over the last day, probably thanks to that article.

            up to $5000.00 now.

              Want to go halfsies with me oobu?

                LOL! It's gonna get Hi Hi Hi. It was at 6700.00 now. Methinks it will really get up there.

                  A Meet-and-Greet With Paul McCartney Is Up for Auction

                    Too rich for my blood...won't be able to swing it. Man I would really shell out for that, if able. BTW, Paul looks sort of like Rami Malak in The Nightfish's avatar, doesn't he? To me, anyway

                      A Meet-and-Greet With Paul McCartney Is Up for Auction

                      The article that was linked there is FAB! Nothing to do with the meet & greet but more about his music & his setlists! Here's an exerpt:

                      How I Became a Paul McCartney Fan: Discovering the Depths of the Former Beatle's Underappreciated Solo Catalog

                      ....

                      His latter career releases have shown tremendous growth and an enthusiasm for embracing a vast swath of musical ideas. Beginning with 1997s Flaming Pie, McCartney has functioned as almost two entirely different musical forces: On the one hand, there’s the pleasantly familiar nostalgia-baiting crowd-pleaser with a repertoire of songs that have been ubiquitous for decades. To watch McCartney on stage in the 2000s and 2010s meant seeing a lot of retreading of Beatles and some Wings -- often played more or less how they sounded on the records. Not a ton of surprises, just the warm and fuzzy security blanket of hearing songs that everyone in the audience has heard countless times and cherished for most of their lives. And he clearly relishes being that guy.

                      But that other McCartney? That guy is much more interesting: a contemporary singer-songwriter still intent on pushing himself creatively on his albums. That guy doesn’t seem to care all that much about the Beatles. That guy has been doing his own thing for 47 years, and never stopped or slowed down. A quick look at McCartney’s discography reveals one of the most productive recording artists of his generation. And he’s remained an evolving, vital artist. Since 2002, he’s collaborated with the disparate likes of Nigel Godrich, Youth, Mark Ronson, David Kahne and Kanye West -- even scoring a Billboard Hot 100 top five hit with the latter and Rihanna. His last 20+ years include an album run (Flaming PieRun Devil RunDriving RainChaos & Creation In the Backyard, Memory Almost Full and NEW) that could be the finest of his career, continually finding new modes of expression alongside new collaborators, without becoming inauthentic to the Macca who fans had always known and loved.
