Waiting for the bus. A bit damp but very happy.
What better way to spend a Friday night in Bergen than to go to a concert by Paul McCartney. Along with thousands of other people I swayed and danced to songs that covered his history of being one of the most iconic entertainers from the 60's and 70's with the Beatles and Wings. I, of course, was one of the back up singers, although he wasn't aware of it. There were only a few songs that I, and it appeared the rest of the audience, didn't know the words to. For over 3 hours he sang out Lennon/McCartney classics including Hey Jude, Love Me Do, Back to The USSR, and McCartney classics, including Band On the Run, Live and Let Die. Also a couple of George Harrison greats like Something, and so many others from these great song writers. At 74 he far surpassed my expectations of how good this concert was going to be, voice great, chatter great, other members of the band great, fantastic background graphics and action on stage,{especially Live and Let Die, flames and explosions everywhere} and he is still very capable of wooing the crowd young and old. To me this concert will remain in my
