It’s not every day you get to see a true living legend, but more than 40,000 die- hard fans packed in to Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium Sunday for a night they’ll remember for a lifetime as Paul McCartney brought his “Out There” tour to SoCal.
Returning to Dodger Stadium for the first time since last playing with The Beatles on Aug. 28, 1966, McCartney rocked a sold-out crowd for more than three hours of classic favorites and ‘new’ gems. His expansive setlist covered all the big hits spanning his career with The Beatles, his post-solo success with Wings and his most recent solo release New.
After a short pre-show video, Sir Paul emerged on stage launching into “Eight Days A Week” to a roaring crowd, many of whom were crossing seeing the Beatles legend in concert off their bucket list.
K-EARTH 101 was onsite for the show with Dave Randall broadcasting live from the left field reserve level gates from 6-10pm. This morning he called in with Charlie Tuna, who’s filling in for The K-EARTH 101 Morning Show, to talk about the potent energy level from the show.
Dave said he was “as close as you could get, you could hear the crowd roaring” when Sir Paul took the stage.
Before the show, there were thousands of fans lining up to get through the gates once doors opened, with hundreds making a detour to their sears to stop by the K-EARTH 101 booth to snap a selfie with our “Sir Paul” lifesize cutout!
All in all it was an amazing show, with Dave noting “the weather was perfect, the crowd was well-behaved – it was a family crowd with moms and daughters and dads and sons…aging hippies and young hipsters.”
