&(Piccie Fan's On The Run-
what a great week for the thousands of fans, who attended Paul McCartney's, two gigs this past week. if that wasn't enuff, Paul surprises, at least, 3 fans, without a doubt, and beyond their wildest dreams..ahahaha- see below... Dang, isn't nice to be acknowledge by Paul McCartney himself!?
Paul McCartney's Twin Double take! lol
Soundcheck ends, and we're about to start filing out when Paul's security guy is motioning in our direction........I nudged Sis and we walked in his direction, not really believing what was happening! He asked us to follow him towards the stage.........we kept going along the stage front, then went around to the backstage, up the stairs and there was Paul waiting for us! It was so surreal and we had no time to really prepare!!!! Paul was SO gracious and smiling, being his charming self.....he seemed a bit hot from the humid weather.....

We're Really Rawkin in Boston say's Paul
Where did this saying- come from? Many might have said it before. However when I heard the news, of Paul playing Boston, I knew, one fan, Podgie. would be pleased as all get out, that Macca & the boys would be playin on his own home town... once again.. like myself, Podgie, had a special sign made about Boston which Paul, aknowledged & signed a few years back. Read about the signs history and what Paul said at saturday night gig- check this!
The sign has quite a history, going back to 2002. Paul read it as he did an interview entering the Fleetcenter in Boston, and closed the show saying "Tonight, We were REALLY Rocking in Boston! See ya next time!" as he looked to us. He remembered the sign when I talked to him on the Rockline radio show.
When I met him at the "High In the Clouds" book signing, he said "Hey, you're the sign guy from Boston!...I liked the sign!"
In 2005, he actually came out of his way to sign the second iteration of the sign at the Fleetcenter.
At the CD/DVD signing he drew a picture of me, I am sure because of his rememberance of me and the sign.
Actually in 2002, my daughter held the sign, and she was Sweet Little Sixteen at the time! There was multiple meaning in the sign that year!
I figured he would be looking for the sign in Boston again! I held it up the first of the two Fenway shows, and he nodded at me. The second show he came out with the words, without me holding up the sign. After he said the words, I did put it up though, and got a wave and thumbs up.
I think in the second soundcheck Paul may have gotten a bit miffed as it seemed quite a few held up signs to sign stuff...and rather than dealing with everyone he decided to ignore the signs. I can't blame him, he did seem tired and less energetic in the soundcheck (I am sure saving his energy for the show).
I was guilty too, as I was hoping to get a photo of Paul with the sign. How cool would that have been? I am picturing the band holding the sign and Paul in front of it...would have been great for inclusion in the CD or DVD that comes out for the tour. Oh well, not to be.
The soundchecks were awesome! The shows were awesome! Actually, my whole summer has been awesome! I dread going back to work on Monday!
I'm very Happy for Martha My Dear, her sister, and Podgie Way to Go!!! Now everyone knows where- We're Really Rawkin in Boston came from!! hehehehe~ :)
