walliebaby:Looks like I might be headed to the DC show as well. I don't know why I enjoy living in debt, but I seem to let Paul put me in it whenever he tours. :

Congrats!

I really splurged on this concert, but I thankfully had been saving for a while! He's coming to my city, but I decided to go elsewhere since I can't take music festivals!

There's no way I'd survive the 'roo. VERMONT in the summer is too hot for me! ops:

This will make four Paul shows this summer for me, all of which are going to hurt my bank account. However, for those days leading up to the concert and the concert itself, it will be bliss!

Would be Outside Lands for me, so shouldn't be too hot in the city, but I just can't do the general admission crowds. But, will still probably go and find a nice spot in the park to sit and at least listen.

If I had a chance to take more time off of work, I probably would have done more Paul shows this summer, but I need to save my vacation time for the holidays and a big trip for next fall that is possibly in the works.

One of the perks of teaching is the summers off, and Paul has thankfully kept his US touring to primarily summer time.

You'll probably get a nice listen in the park! And much cheaper, too.

Oh yes that is a nice perk! ;)

yes, I'm sure there will be a lot of others doing the same, but won't be nearly as mad as it will be inside I'm sure! ;)

I'm sure you'll get better "seats" as well!

5th-beatle:These items were available at Paul's concerts in Brazil:


Great shirts! I hope they have most of those in DC! ;)

Thanks for the pictures!

walliebaby:I can't believe I'm actually going to this show. SO thrilled. I especially can't wait to see all of your there, old friends and soon-to-be friends.

It will be a fun evening!

MaccaGirl90:Here's the problem I have with people wearing Beatles shirts to his shows...

It's a PAUL SOLO SHOW. Not a Beatles concert. I mean it's been 43 years since he was a Beatle.

I don't get it...

People can wear whatever they want to a Paul concert, or any other concert they attend. Everybody has different likes and tastes.

Ah, so much I see that I like! Hoping they have most of the same stuff still in July!

I've been pretty fortunate with the two Paul concerts I've been to not to have encountered really rude people in the areas I was sitting.

I did have a bit of a problem at the San Francisco concert with tons of people lighting joints since the smell of marijuana makes me sick to my stomach, so that was a bit rough for me.

Got an email saying mine has been shipped! Will have it Tuesday.

femaleanimal:I think the obsession with his hair makes people look petty and silly. And you expect him to remained perfectly coiffed during a rock-show??!! Well, I never.

NO ONE said anything about perfectly coiffed.

You can say it's "petty and silly" to care about his hair. But that's just denying reality, and the reality is: Style matters in pop and rock. It always has. And for some inexplicable reason, Paul has allowed his hair -- both the often bad coloring and lately the cut -- to become a punchline for 10 years now. He could do something about it, and he chooses not to, and people (including potential fans) are turned off by that. A good deal of the reason Bowie is being canonized lately for aging "gracefully" is purely because of style, since his latest record isn't any better than any of Paul's late-career records.

You may not want it to matter but it does -- unless you're Neil Young or Bob Dylan. But if you're an artist like Paul who was a beautiful man for decades and who was in a band that set style trends for generations, people are going to notice if your hair always looks dodgy.

And you expect him to remained perfectly coiffed during a rock-show??

Yes. Bruce Springsteen manages it. He has a short, attractive style that looks good from start to finish in his 3 hour rock shows. A good cut would do Paul wonders, IMHO.

But Paul's hair still hasn't stopped him from selling out arenas/stadiums where ever he goes and I doubt the majority of the people at the shows are thinking about his hair.
