Paul McCartney played the first ever concert at Citi Field, formerly known as the parking lot across from Shea Stadium tonight in Queens, New York.  Shea Stadium, if you’ll recall, was where the Beatles played the largest gig ever in the United States in 1964.

We braved the pouring rain as Paul played hit after hit from the Beatles and Wings on this historic night.  He hit the stage around 9 pm and played for a solid 2 and a half hours.  Don’t worry if you missed this show, it was recorded for a future live DVD release.

Macca dedicated songs to John Lennon, George Harrison and Linda McCartney, though kept silent about Michael Jackson.  Billy Joel guested on stage during “I Saw Her Standing There.”  It was a night to remember.

So many great songs were absent (Hello Goodbye, All My Loving, Getting Better, Fixing A Hole, We Can Work It Out, Mother Nature’s Son, Carry That Weight, The Fool On The Hill, Maybe I’m Amazed, etc.), but with a beefy 33 song set, we definitely got our money’s worth.

Getting better all the time.

Getting better all the time.
