McCartney Brings Back Beatlemania to Missoula

From the opening strains of “Eight Days A Week” to the closing notes of “The End,” Sir Paul McCartney conducted the largest sing-along choir in Montana history at Washington-Grizzly Stadium in Missoula.

The eternal Beatle sang non-stop for three hours and then topped off the evening with two encores to the delighted audience of 25,000 that filled the football stadium.

Highlights of the concert included a pyrotechnic-filled “Live and Let Die” from McCartney’s years with his Wings band, and a tribute to the late George Harrison as McCartney started the song “Something” with a ukelele and led the song into a full-blown rendition of the iconic song.

The crowd sang along with all the familiar Beatles songs that touched on every year of the band’s existence in the 1960s and 70s, and McCartney seemed appreciative of the huge Montana welcome. The 72-year-old musician traded off various guitars during the concert and spent time at the keyboard.

Though the crowd was filled with fans who were approaching McCartney’s 72-years, all were feeling much younger as the music surrounded them.

Thank you, Sir Paul!
