Hey Sweetcharmedlife, I see he recently added a date near your new abode

Yeah I saw that. This may be the alternate market tour. But it's not alternate ticket prices. My budget is still trying to recover from my Springsteen tour.  Oh no! not you again

http://www.omaha.com/go/review-paul-mccartney-plays-old-and-new-music-at-omaha/a...




" Review: Paul McCartney plays old and new music at Omaha show    "






" Sir Paul did it all.


He played guitar, bass, keyboards and piano. He commanded the stage with his band and on his own.


He did his first-ever recording from his first band and his most recent, which was made with pop and hip-hop stars.



Sunday at CenturyLink Center, Paul McCartney did old, new and everything in between, and his fans loved him for it.


They walked into the arena sporting Beatles T-shirts, Union Jack flags and brightly colored Sgt. Pepper-style military uniforms. They talked about favorite songs and favorite Beatles. They snapped selfies with old Beatles photos flashing on the screens behind them.


Anticipation built as people found their seats and waited in beer lines.


More than 19,000 people showed up to the sold-out CenturyLink Center to see the former Beatle work through 39 songs for more than three hours like the master that he is.

Kate Varady, 64, saw him in concert last week in Oklahoma City, where she lives, and was so delighted that she brought her kids, Christina and Matthew Aiello, to Omaha.


They prepped for the show by snapping pictures of one another with the stage as a backdrop.


“We all listened to the Beatles,” Varady said. “They grew up with them on all the time.”


Varady picked them up in Kansas City and hit the road. All were sporting McCartney and Beatles gear, Christina Aiello in an “Abbey Road” shirt and Varady in a tour T-shirt she picked up at the Oklahoma City show.


When McCartney finally took the stage, the massive crowd went wild.


“Good evening, Omaha. It's great to be back here. I'm getting the feeling we're gonna have some fun in this place tonight,” he said after stepping onstage with his signature Hofner violin-style bass. “We’re gonna play some old songs, some new songs and some in between ones. So let's get started.”


And that's exactly what he did.


McCartney and his four-man band worked through his extensive catalog of Beatles hits and obscurities, Wings material and newer solo songs. He even took us all the way back in time to the days of the proto-Beatles band The Quarrymen to play “In Spite of All the Danger.”


Later in the set, McCartney performed his most recent tune, “FourFiveSeconds,” which he wrote with Kanye West and Rihanna.


McCartney paid tribute to the deceased members of the Beatles at various points, first by performing “Here Today” and explaining that it was all the things he wanted to say to John Lennon but never did.


Later, McCartney pulled out a ukulele that was given to him by George Harrison. And then he performed “Something” while photos of Harrison flashed up on the screen behind him.


He dedicated “My Valentine” to his wife, Nancy, who was in attendance. And then he dedicated the next song, “Maybe I’m Amazed,” to his late wife Linda.


McCartney did it all, and he did it well.


He sat behind the keys for “Queenie Eye” and lit up a baby grand during “Maybe I’m Amazed.” He played bass on various songs, especially early Beatles stuff, but switched to guitar and cranked out guitar solos for “Let Me Roll It.”


The only thing that has suffered is McCartney’s voice. At 75, his voice isn't quite what it used to be. Though he's sometimes criticized for playing old songs without changing the key to fit his current voice, I found that his voice simply isn't as full as it once was and he sometimes couldn't carry the song.


That said, he gave it his all during every song, especially during the boisterous parts of “Hey Jude” and “Live and Let Die.”


McCartney's best vocal performances came when he performed solo with only an acoustic guitar, especially on “Blackbird” and “Here Today,” a two-song stand in which he let his voice and guitar skills shine.


McCartney made every big moment as big as he could make it, and he made the intimate moments feel like he was playing just for you.


“Live and Let Die” came with explosions, massive spurts of flame and fireworks blasting all over the stage as if it were an actual James Bond production. A few songs later, he stood on the edge of the stage, strummed his guitar and sang “Yesterday.”


Always affable, McCartney peppered the show with plenty of stories like the time the Beatles went to see Jimi Hendrix play in London and how he ended up taking the lead singing the chorus on “Love Me Do” when the Beatles recorded it at Abbey Road. He talked about he and Lennon running into their pals Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and how the two Beatles gave the Rolling Stones “I Wanna Be Your Man.”


McCartney made fans feel welcome, inviting a pair onstage for a marriage proposal and a hug, reading his favorite homemade signs out loud and goading them into singing along wherever and whenever possible.


And they did, especially in the final run of songs, which was entirely popular Beatles and Wings material such as “Band on the Run,” “Back in the USSR,” “Let it Be,” “Live and Let Die,” “Hey Jude,” “Yesterday” and “Hi, Hi, Hi,” among others.


“You sound so good,” McCartney said. “Omaha rules.”


The show closed with a three-song run from side two of “Abbey Road” in which he strung together “Golden Slumbers,” “Carry That Weight” and “The End,” just like on the record.


It was incredible, and the show ended with the classic line, “The love you take is equal to the love you make.”


As this fans shouted and cheered, McCartney looked around, read their homemade signs, flashed smiles and enjoyed the adoration.


“This is so cool,” McCartney said. “I'm just gonna take a minute just for myself to drink it all in.”

" Review: Paul McCartney delivers classics with engaging grace, style and class  "



" OMAHA -- Film of The Beatles running to the stage inside Shea Stadium rolled behind Paul McCartney Sunday night at CenturyLink Center as he sang “Can’t Buy Me Love” -- a song that he, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr had done at that legendary show 52 years ago.

McCartney was all of 23 then, was 24 in 1966 when The Beatles called it quits for live performing and 28 when the band the world continues to love more than any other broke up in 1970.

That’s a little mind boggling to consider when the now 75-year-old McCartney performs Beatles songs.

But bringing back those songs is one of the main reasons McCartney fills arenas around the world, year after year -- and it is, frankly, thrilling to hear Beatle Paul sing them in the same building you’re in.

“Can’t Buy Me Love” and “A Hard Day’s Night,” both from 1964, weren’t the oldest songs McCartney performed. Nor was “Love Me Do,” The Beatles first recording -- dedicated to producer George Martin.

Instead, he reached all the way back to The Quarrymen, the pre-Beatles skiffle group where he first teamed up with Lennon and Harrison, for “In Spite of All the Danger,” which started a mini-set of early songs played by McCartney on acoustic guitar backed by accordion and stand-up drummer.

That kind of smart staging and sequencing continued throughout the show -- from McCartney rising above the stage on a lighted platform to do “Blackbird” and “Here Today,” his tribute to Lennon (the night’s most touching moment), through the pyro and explosions of “Live and Let Die,” the main set’s penultimate song.

Across the evening, McCartney played his trademark Hofner bass through Vox amps (primarily on earlier Beatles songs), electric guitar, on which he did a snippet of Jimi Hendrix’s “Foxy Lady,” acoustic guitar, a pair of pianos and the ukulele on a version of Harrison’s “Something,” another tribute.

The set careered through McCartney’s career -- Beatles songs mixed in with Wings and solo numbers, including a pair from 2013’s “New,” his most recent album and “FourFive Seconds,” his 2015 collaboration with Rihanna and Kanye West.

“If we do an old Beatles song, all your phones light up, like a celestial galaxy,” McCartney said after “Queenie Eye." “If we do new songs, it’s a like a black hole. We don’t care. We’re going to do them anyway.”

Good for him for that and for the inclusion of “Temporary Secretary,” a genuinely creepy electropop song, in the show that, by and large, delivered just what the 20,000 who filled the arena to hear and, often, sing, joining in on classics like “Hey Jude” and, encouraged by McCartney, “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.”


Sunday’s concert came three years and a week after McCartney last played Nebraska -- at Lincoln's Pinnacle Bank Arena in 2014. The shows were similar -- 22 of Sunday’s 39 songs were on the list in Lincoln and both ran three hours.

There was, at least to my recollection, more elaborate lighting and screen projections on Sunday than three years ago.

Most importantly, McCartney is older now and, at times, sounded that way, his voice cracking a handful of times and thin at others.

That’s understandable and forgivable -- the man is 75 and is a pair of Chicago engagements away from the end of this leg of his “One on One Tour” and more than a month of rest.

The vocal wobbles largely seemed to go unnoticed and certainly didn’t impair the enjoyment of the enraptured audience and, by all appearances, of McCartney and his very good, very tight band, which showed that is a fine rock ‘n’ roll outfit delivering songs with edge and power.

And, of course, most of those songs were classics from one of the giants in popular music history, who, as he has done each of the half-dozen times I’ve seen him, delivered them with engaging grace, style and class.  "

"  Paul McCartney & His Band Are In Lean, Fighting Form  '



BY TANKBOY IN ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT      


" Over nearly three hours and 39 songs on Tuesday night, Paul McCartney made a pretty strong argument against any claims he might be going through the motions or needlessly trading on sentimentality during his current One On One tour. Sure, there were numerous nods to his Beatles hey-day, and miniature tributes to famous departed bandmates and friends—including John Lennon, George Harrison, George Martin and Jimi Hendrix—but those gestures felt heartfelt and genuine, a master sharing precious memories.

McCartney’s touring band was filled with the team that has backed him since he started touring again in 2003—and hasn’t really stopped since)with guitarists Rusty Anderson and Brian Ray, keyboardist Paul "Wix" Wickens, and drummer Abe Laboriel, Jr. (arguable one of the strongest weapons in Sir Paul’s live arsenal with his ability to fill so much space with both his persuasion skills and his vocal support).

The tour's stage set is tastefully minimal, and while it occasionally makes good use of projections on scrims over the stage and two huge screens framing the action, the majority of the light show consists of making sure McCartney and the band are the show the spotlights are focused upon. And on such a simple stage, McCartney's smallest movements projected far to the back. And Sir Paul proved he's still got it when movements as simple as removing his jacket early in the show, or giving a playful waggle of his hips toward the audience, elicited teenage-volume screams from the audience.

As McCartney bounded about the stage, at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, it was remarkable how much a member of a working band he was, and not at all just some icon happy to be trotted out to front a history lesson. That isn't to say he didn't school the crowd on the touchpoint of his vast career, touching on everything from The Beatles, Wings, and high-profile collaborations.

McCartney's tweaks of familiar material provided some of the more insightful moments of the evening. His dip into the song he co-wrote with Kanye West and Rihanna, "FourFiveSeconds," was transformed from a subtle pop meditation into into a big old singalong that built from a slow acoustic preamble into a big, stadium crowd-pleasing end.

The fan-favorite but often critically maligned "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" was gifted with an aggressive drive and quickened tempo that reinvigorated the song by giving it some teeth, and this even made the inevitable vocal back and forth at the song's end somewhat palatable.

In a quieter interlude near the show's first quarter, McCartney even trotted out his first song with the proto-Beatles group The Quarrymen, on a set that mimicked a rural wooden porch; a nice nod and wink to simpler times even if the fact of the matter probably saw said Quarrymen playing the song in someone's dark basement or small rehearsal space at the time.

McCartney decried the idea that The Beatles and The Rolling Stones were ever rivals as "fake news!" and then, to prove it, played the song he and Lennon gave Mick Jagger and Keith Richards in 1963, "I Wanna Be Your Man," that would go on to chart as the Stones' first hit in England.*

The evening took the crowd on a grand tour hat didn't miss a single stop and left all passengers exhausted by the time the inevitable balls of flame punctuated the massive chorus of "Live And Let Die" and the final massive crowd participation that closed out the main set with "Hey Jude," filled with thousands of throats voicing "na-na-na-na" over and over again.

Somehow McCartney and his band seemed barely winded as they returned to the stage brandishing various flags—including the U.S.A., the U.K., the State of Illinois, and a Rainbow Flag. Well, all except Laboriel, whose victory lap saw him toasting the crowd with a full glass of wine. And from that point onward the assembled were treated to an encore that lasted as long as some band's entire sets, finishing the evening with the majestic combination of "Golden Slumbers," "Carry That Weight," and "The End."

*O.K., as a music-nerd-aside, this needs to be said. I guess "I Wanna Be Your Man" did chart higher (#12) than their debut "Come On" did (#21) on the British charts. But both songs did chart. And the next single "Not Fade Away" blew both of those previous songs out of the water at #3. But all that was over 50 years ago, so I guess what defines a hit is really less important than the fact The Beatles and The Stones were pals.
