Boston, MA – The Red Sox weren’t in town, however Fenway Park and Kenmore Sq. in Boston were alive and rocking on Tuesday. Living legend Sir Paul McCartney was in town and delighted the crowd of around 45,000 which was made up of every age range from ‘tweens to youngsters in their 70’s.
No matter where you were in Kenmore Sq. the classic tunes from the Beatles, Wings, and so many more were emanating from the Park just as sure as the aroma of garlic and bread wafts from the No. End on the other side of town.
Starting with ‘Eight Days a Week,’ and running the gamut of just about every song he is known for, the ageless Paul McCartney sounds as good today as he did in the 60’s.
As the finale of ‘Live and Let Die’ thundered out of Fenway with the pyro show that accompanied it, the crowd was up on its feet cheering and applauding, and somewhere through the mist, smoke, and appreciative fans, I just couldn’t help but think that John and George were sitting on top of the ‘Green Monster’ smiling down on their old friend and enjoyed the show as he and they belted out one encore after the other leaving the crowd in a gleeful frenzy.
Sir Paul, generations of fans from Boston and all around the world thank you, and I just know that your timeless tunes will be around for generations to come. Keep on rocking.
