Peabo scored VIP seats, though I won’t be happy unless Paul plays “Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime,” “The Girl is Mine” and this undisputed classic.
Actually, I was paid to be there. Pretty good deal.
Those shelling out $79 to see McCartney play Piedmont Park probably didn’t expect him to perform an hour-long sound check on the concert’s eve. Of course, they’ll have better sight lines, but I got to hear complete versions of “Daytripper,” “I’ll Follow the Sun,” “All My Loving” and “Lady Madonna.” No complaints.
Sheldon Greenbriar will report live from the scene tomorrow, assuming he survives Peabo Bryson’s pre-concert bash.
