It's like he's singing with one lung. There is no power in his voice. It's been croaky or wobbly before sometimes but not like this. It's weak, and sometimes feeble. Interestingly the press reviews have made no issue of it. Not yet.
Or maybe he's just a 74 year old man singing the songs he wrote when he was 25. Like it or not, he'll never ever sound as good as the year before (nor will any of us) so shall he be touring next year .. we'll be looking back to how great he sang in 2016 He's just human, isnt' he?
Think like that - if you don't want to give money for his show - don't give them. My biggest dream is to see Paul - I will travel 660 km to make it in June. I know that his voice has its best times behind, but for God sake - he is Sir Paul McCartney. He could play anything from his big career and it still will be amazing. World has maybe 4.600000 years, and we are living at the same time with as wonderful man as Macca, who gives us moments of tears and happiness with music and his entirety. We have to be grateful that we have this honour to see him playing by all those years.
^^ Thank you for this. It's always so weird for me to go to shows, and every fan is raving about him and joyous. Then I read rave reviews from pretty much every music critic after every Paul show -- and they go to concerts and judge them for a living, and they can't stop praising him, yet I come to his message board, and it's so much negativity! I've been seeing him live since 1993, and sure, his voice is stronger some nights than others, but BFD! His voice is just one aspect of this show. It's almost refreshing when he has a moment where he seems like a real human being... you know, imperfect. The majority of his moments are still fantastic, and his performances certainly still capture the feeling of the originals. There are plenty of moments when his voice sounds strong and true. These shows are his life history and also the soundtrack to my life and to many fans in the audience. They're emotional, exciting, packed with visual stimulation, and loud and glorious rock and roll. Every single show, I rock out... and I literally cry. I keep going back and spending money I haven't yet earned because the experience is so wonderful. I'm super thankful he's doing what he's doing. I also enjoy Four Five Seconds, and it has seemed from the people around me singing along during the three times I've heard him perform it, that many others do, too. I just find it so odd that there are 20,000 happy fans every time he performs, and a dozen or so people who criticize his every move dominating his own message board. It's a weird world.
