MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - About 44,000 people watched Paul McCartney perform Tuesday night at Milwaukee’s Miller Park.
It was his fifth show in Wisconsin in 49 years – including the Beatles’ 1964 concert at what’s now the U.S. Cellular Arena.
McCartney treated the crowd to 38 songs over three hours. They included some of his classic Beatles’ hits and tunes from his days with Wings, plus some of his own originals.
A Journal Sentinel reviewer said McCartney’s voice was, “impeccably preserved, given his age and given the wear he’s inevitably had to put it through.”
McCartney is 71 – and for obvious reasons, his classic song about aging, “When I’m 64,” was not part of the set list.
Thousands of fans tailgated in the parking lots before the show, just like Brewers’ fans do when the team’s at Miller Park.
