Looks like it won't be announced until Apr. 16 whether or not he will/will not be doing Outside Lands festival in San Francisco.
I was really really really hoping he would do a proper send off to Candlestick Park before it gets demolished next year. But if he does Outside Lands, I really doubt he would do another gig in S. F. I'm still hoping and praying that he will do something else in California. Not a real big festival goer. I don't even know who those other acts are, except for Green Day & RHCP.
Personally, and this is JMHO, it is the young nubile well endowed scantily clad women that get the first row center seats.
So, what does this have to do with Paul?
Gave me a near heart attack thinking HE was coming to SoCal!
I don't really count Outside Lands in San Francisco as actually being a big part of this tour, since it will not be an entire concert performance.
As much as i would LOVE to see Paul, and only a couple of hours away, I just can't justify going to a festival with 30 other acts I have never heard of, and dealing with all the logistics that attending a large festival entails, only to hear a handful of songs. JMHO
As much as I really really really want to see Paul, I do NOT care to attend this festival.
I want to see a full concert...just Paul doing his entire set.
beatlesfanrandy:He is the headliner. He will perform a whole set. I'd go if I could. He blew 'em away at Coachella in '09. He'll do the same this year. It'll be epic!
Hi Randy...I really now am having mixed feelings. Even though it will be a full set, the parking/transportation sounds like it will be problematic, and with no assigned seating. Will we have to get there 6 hours in advance to get a place to sit/stand? Do we know what date? Do we have to buy a 3 day pass just to see Paul?
So, have been thinking long & hard about this, weighing seeing Paul vs. the inconvenience of parking, transportation, no assigned seating, etc. Right now just the opportunity of seeing Paul is winning.
Does anyone know if one day tix can be purchased, and what day will Paul perform? How soon would we need to arrive in the day to insure a good viewing spot?
*sigh* Why can't he just perform solo somewhere in the Bay Area?
But, as I said, just the opportunity to see Paul again is overshadowing the logistics.
I am fairly short, so the chances are that someone taller than I am standing in front of me blocking my view are fairly high. It looks like he will be performing at the Polo stadium...is my assumption correct? If so, it looks like there are bleachers on the sides of the stadium if we wanting to be able to sit before he begins to sing. If we decided to go on the field, I wonder if one can find a space and sit on a blanket until the concert begins? As you can tell, I don't attend big music festivals. We did go to Bridge School many years ago, but it was assigned seating, which was much preferable to a "free for all".
I will probably hold out until the schedule comes out and see if they have day tix for sale.
I would only take them if they were old enough to take care of themselves. I would want to thoroughly enjoy the concert, not have to worry about my children being bored/tired/hungry/cranky, etc. We had enough family trips when they were young to know not to take them anywhere where I wanted to really enjoy myself without being responsible for someone else. I would take them now, at 25 & 28 IF they wanted to attend. But they wouldn't for fear I would embarrass them. :
