    i saw him for 50 dollars in 1992.. on the world tour.. that came to memphis.. it was great... i might pay 200 to see him now.. but not 250
    they did play live and let die.. with all the fireworks though.. it did kickass

    McCartney will be in St. Louis next week. I really wrestled with plunking down $250 (minimum). I decided it's cheaper to buy a DVD of his most recent tour.

    Actually, Zack is the son of the drummer of the Beatles.

    Does Paul play bass any longer??? All I've seen with these days is an acoustic guitar.

    Personally, he would never get $250 out of me with his pompous-ass attitude. As he said, "We're selling out concerts in 17 minutes, so somebody must think the prices are reasonable. "We're not twisting anyone's arm."

    I can sleep at night knowing I played punk in the late 70's for a half of a pizza.

    Seeing yesterday's rock rebels getting knighted these days makes me hope another generation will have the cahones to stir things up again. :rolleyes:

    Yes, it is worth it for you Martha/Zack01, just so you will see him live and stop posting these McCartney thread which Cassanova specifically stated he wanted no more of in his forum. M'kay?

    Would not pay $250 to see McCartney live nowadays. He sang Blackbird live at the Queens golden jubilee thingy, it was almost painful.

    no, i don't think it's worth it and anyone who is a real musician would not charge anyone to listen to what they love to do. music (and especially people) should be free.
