Paul McCartney Plays Dallas plus Sound Check part 2
Since It's been, most difficult, to edit my blog posty below. I thought, I will start a part 2 too finish off The Dallas experience. I've done this in the past with other gigs I have attended. (see older posts below) Besides, I have more piccies to add. Enjoying Beatles Rock Band or the Remaster's?

I have to say "I'm Down" I Got a Feeling" and "Taxman" had to be some of the high lights for me, on this trip!!! They rawked, so hard and it was cool that Paul sang a couple verses my way of "I'm Down" & "Paperbackwriter" or he coulda been lookin over my shoulder at Elsa, singing to her? lmao!!~

The gig was really cool besides the dimwitted security. The crowd really started to warm up half way thru the gig as I had said before. Lots of happy intoxicated folks! ha.. I saw that Paul & The band felt this too The energy was amazing! when the concert ended I attempted to find my friends who did NOT have access to my area. I had to walk what seemed like a mile, an hour plus later. None of the staff in their golf carts would help me at all.
Once, I found the gang we went to some crummy lil hamburger joint. I had ice tea and water. We were there for over an hour. Laughin really silly from exhaustion. It was fun talking about seeing Macca & The band. We dropped off some people at their hotel.. Than it was off to the airport for me & Mike.. Mike off to Mexico and me back to Cali. Remember I had been up since 8:30 am the previous morning.
The Dallas airport was a ghost town & 3am and I was dog tired. I said my goodbyes to my friends and off I went into the airport with the glaring lights and uncomfortable chairs. I closed my eyes hoping to fall asleep. 3 hrs later I boarded the plane headed for Denver. I had to transfer- than boarded a plane for San Jose- Dang I still couldn't sleep and rested my eyelids the entire way. Once I arrived in Cali I took a cab home, took a shower than it was off to work! YES WORK! whew I had made it!
I have no regrets at all going to Dallas- Glad to meet up with friends, happy to meet Rusty after all these years & I loved the Soundcheck. It was fairly expensive. It could have been a cheaper if I had my way. The food fantastic. Shelly a doll & the other wonderful fans that I met brill. I wish I could have finally met Paul :) maybe next time!
