TO MANY FREE GIGS IN USA!!
I always crack up when people say, "It's been a whole two years since McCartney has played my town. He needs to come back!" My complaint is there are places he has NEVER played, like Albuquerque. But my disappointment is just becoming indifference. Would I get excited if McCartney ever played Albuquerque? Of course! Do I care if he plays other places? Not really. Means absolutely nothing to me. And none of my money goes to those shows, so I really have nothing to complain about.
I am sure there is quite a few states McCartney has never played in the US. I bet off the top of my head he has never played in Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Mississippi, Alabama, North Dakota, South Dakota, Idaho, Montana etc. I just think they hit the major markets for the most part. I live in Charlotte and McCartney played here in 1993 and did not come back again until 2010.
You are right. Still, I wish my complaint was that McCartney played Albuquerque in 1993 and then again in 2010. But I do see your point.
I do feel bad for you, it has to be frustrating especially when you see how many times he has played major markets.
Honestly, it wouldn't bother me if McCartney played only major markets, like Phoenix and Denver. I understand that. But Albuquerque is comparable to Omaha, Des Moines, Tulsa, and maybe Salt Lake City, place he has played. So, he COULD play here, he just doesn't. That is what I find frustrating. And, he played New Mexico before, so there is a precedent. If he did before, why not again?

Now that he has reIeased such a great album, I am sure Paul will tour the US and Europe next year, in order to keep promoting it.
