    I was able to get tickets to Paul McCartney in Cinti ! I tried online for thirty minutes. It come popping up , busy for your selection , we have the $250 seats. Way out out of my budget ! I kept trying . Finally got through ! He hasn't been in town for over 17 years. Probably be the last time. I kick my self in the hinny for not going to a ELVIS concert years ago. Anyone else going?

    My boss took us to see him the last time he was in OKC. It was so so good, loved it. He also took us to see Dixie Chicks twice and Shania Twain. Those were the days !!

    I tried here in Chicago...he will be playing at Wrigley Field...
    But, I went to see ELVIS in concert twice, many years ago. My husband then my fiance, took me the first time and the next year took me and his Mom...she was an Elvis fan from when he started...and she was hugging her son after the concert and telling him that his father would never take her because he hated Elvis. Believe me, Elvis was not my husbands cup of tea...he was into Black Sabbath, Uriah Heap....

    ha,ha. No i'm not going but do kick myself for not going to see Anthony Quinn in Zorba the Greek when he played in Houston. I really liked him at that time, sniff, sniff.
    Did Paul get married again yet? I haven't kept up.

    I'm sorry, there's NO way I'd pay $250 to see ANYONE, little only all the crowds of people, but it's your money, so spend it as you see fit to. I hope that you have a wonderful time.

    I was fortunate enough to see Paul McCartney, Linda and Wings on their 'Flowers in the Dust' tour way back in 1989. My husband won a competition and the prize consisted of return air tickets from Australia, five nights accommodation in LA and tickets to the show. We were so lucky to have experienced that as there was no way we could have afforded that then.

    I saw George Thoroughgood when we were first married in a concert at our local zoo, very small show maybe 25 years ago. When my son was born the first song I sang to him was Bad to the Bone...... On the day I was born, nurses all gathered round......

    Happy 69th Birthday Paul (today is his birthday). I have never forgotten that since I was one of those crazy teenage girls. Bittersweet about his Birthday, is that my Mom passed away 10 years ago on that date. I took my youngest son (18 at the time) to see him last April in Miami. I paid over $150 each for the tickets. If I had the chance to see him again I'ld buy fromt row seats. He was fantastic !! Even my sone was amazed by the show.

    Yes!! I got tickets for the Detroit show in July. I toyed for a long time about spending the money, but thought this will be the last time I could ever see a Beatle, so I bought them.

    Check out my avatar! The Beatles are my favorite!

    You will love every minute of it! Several years ago he played in Detroit & my DH got tix at the last minute. It was one of my top 10 moments in my life! I felt like I was 13 again. The most amazing part was everyone singing along with all the songs. Totally an exceptional night! Enjoy! :-)

    Never seen the beetles, but did see Elvis. In LasVegas, Omaha and one of his last concerts in Lincoln shortly before he died.

    I have seen Sire Paul twice. Last time was in 2004 here in St. Louis.
    At that time my seat was $100, and that was for second best seats. The best seats were all sold out. Tickets went fast!
    You will enjoy him....he does a great concert and show.
    Love him!

    i saw the beatles, 3rd row center, at suffolk downs (boston) in '65 or '66. it was rumored to be their final tour. even in the 3rd row we were about 20 yards from the stage, but pretty close to the barricades,lol . they looked nearly as small as they did on tv, but way louder! we stood on our chairs and screamed, laughed and cried!
