Paul McCartney Concert
The new Golden 1 Center in downtown Sacramento opened this past Tuesday to none other than Sir Paul McCartney! Paul kicked off the night with “A Hard Day’s Night” and played more than 3 dozen songs for nearly 3 hours! His set list included Beatles’ favorites including “Let It Be” as well as his own personal songs. Paul and his four-piece backing band played music that covered a range of styles and moods. He also engaged with the audience throughout the night and chatted and joked with fans. It was especially touching when he invited a 12 year old girl on stage who held a sign that said, “I’m 12 & I Want To Hold Your Hand.” The little girl cried tears of joy when he shook her hands. When Paul ended the concert with the classic “Hey Jude,” the entire arena erupted into a giant “na-na na na!” Overall, it was an amazing night. The acoustics in the Golden 1 Center were excellent and I can’t wait to go back for future events and Kings games!
