      (P.S. at this video, near at the end you can hear my voice saying "thank you for Alligator" because I've requested him for "Alligator" during the soundcheck and he said "specially for you".. minutes later during the meet and greet you can hear me saying thanks and his reaction and answer (then the video cuts out but our meeting with him continued after the photo session)
      we will be waiting for the picture with him very soon

                          OK, I know it's more than a week later, but I'm still gonna post my review, chronicle, memories, narration, however you call it.

                          First of all, I want to congratulate Paul, the band, and also, a lot to the audience who didn't fail in delivering the great cheering, singing and excitement that makes us well known in the world.

                          All right, I'll start saying I (with my mom, dad and brother) arrived late to the show because the damn authorities closed the parking lot beacuse it was supposedly full; of course, it wasn't, but this took half hour of my family schedule, since we had to find somewhere to park. Fortunately, there was a restaurant not so far where we parked, and immediately took off via running to the stadium. Of course, this took another 20 minutes or so. I actually got to the gates of the stadium when Can't Buy Me Love was being played, so I missed the first 3 songs, hearing to Letting Go on my way to my seat, you know, passing through the security checkpoints, and being placed on my seat; of course, I was already chanting inside the stadium, and the song was on the final guitar solo when I got to my seat. Then GTGYIML was a nice follow-up.

                          I felt Let Me Roll It and Foxy Lady were a bit different, just like in 2012, they were kind of prolonged; then, I think I've Got a Feeling felt kind of weird in the beginning of the concert, but it also felt kind of in the right place. This one also felt a lot different than in 2010 and 2012.

                          When Paul was playing Maybe I'm Amazed, the people started lighting the place with their phones, making it a great picture, and this feat was repeated during Blackbird, A Day in the Life/Give Peace a Chance, Let It Be and as far as I remember. Paul was interrupted before Maybe I'm Amazed by the audience with a Paul, Paul, Paul chant, making him forget about what he was going to say, and expressing "Fuerza Mexico", with an obvious big response from everybody.

                          We Can Work It Out, Love Me Do, Lady Madonna, Eleanor Rigby, I Wanna Be Your Man, and all the songs from Something to the end of the show, caused roars, shouts and absolute crazyness in the audience. Something was the more chanted, like in 2010 and 2012, and the only other song I've heard so chanted along was Satisfaction last year with the Stones at Foro Sol.

                          Another nice display of admiration, devotion and joy was the Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole, Sir Paul, Sir Paul chant, just before the acoustic set, and when Paul goes solo.

                          I gotta tell that I found pretty interesting all those "new" songs, We Can Work It Out, In Spite of All the Danger, You Won't See Me, Love Me Do, Queenie Eye, New, I Wanna Be Your Man & Mr. Kite were very refreshing and joyful to listen to.

                          The only 2 regrets I have are being late, and the fact that the audience in the field was sometimes dull, but this didn't last a lot, if people got quiet, the next song or shout was noisy; and I gotta say that the audience in the stands never stopped cheering. Of course I have no hard feelings towards the people in the pitch, because, just like I mentioned, they were cheering and chanting more than they were quiet.

                            I also want to mention that it was cool Paul played a little bit of The Back Seat of My Car, which completely took everyone off guard, and when he repeated the verse, people acknowledge it, and screamed, although it could have been sung if everyone chanted, if not the whole song, maybe a snippet. Still, it was a very nice detail.

                            This time, Every Night was not played like in 2012, despite the phones lighting the stadium repeatedly. Only theme missing in the concert.
