i'm coming for you paul!

Thursday, August 19, 2010

i simply can't think about anything today other than the fact that in a few short hours i'll be hopping in my car with my mom and sissy and heading to pittsburgh.

we'll be meeting up with teen and heading to
the consol energy center to see paul mccartney play his second night in pittsburgh and his final stop on his US tour.

in the 11th row.


i think about the show i'm seeing tonight and i get all emotional - i'm so excited i can't even handle it. i mean it's, sir paul, who i feel is the only person in the world that would and could
render me speechless.


i've grown up on paul mccartney, the beatles, wings, all of it.


when i was 17 and in europe there were two things on my to do list - go to abbey road in london and jim morrison's grave in paris. classic rock is my favorite kind of rock.


so today as i patiently wait for the time when i can head to the burgh i'll be listening to a steady stream of paul mccartney in preparation for what can only be described as a defining moment in my concert attending career.


yes, i'm being
THAT dramatic about it.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, i can't wait!

  1. I grew up on the Beatles, too! And I got kicked out of the pub where the Beatles were discovered (or played a lot?) in Liverpool when I tried to sneak in some adult beverages. Classic, eh?! =)

  2. And to think I passed on 7th row seats for the show.....the second best thing to be 7 rows from the Sir is being 4 rows from the Plum! Have a good time!

  3. I can't say I'm a huge Beatles fan, not because I don't like their music, just because I've never really "listened" to it. Sure I've heard it played all over the place, but I've never really paid attention to it. I think I might have to change that...

    Hope you girls have a blast and I can't wait to hear all about it!

  4. I saw Paul McCartney back in 1990 at the old Cleveland Stadium - I had tickets on the field pretty close to the stage. It was an amazing show. There's just something about Paul and the mystique of The Beatles. Have a great time - enjoy!

  5. You should throw your bra on stage. Or a Cleveland's a Plum shirt. :)
