Paul McCartney’s Homecoming     [Report Abuse]   

Posted by: concerti     
One of Liverpool's greatest living sons returned to his spiritual home for a show that brought together his old and new songs in abundance. The state of the art ECHO arena played host to this special occasions and fans were treated to an amazing visual show, along with hit after hit. So often with these megastars, who frankly grow tired of playing the same songs year after year, they leave out the numbers that made them famous in the first place, much to the dismay of the real fans.

The 10,000 capacity venue which stands on the former King's Dock, was packed to the rafters for this homecoming show.
But this is not the first time Paul McCartney has graced his homeland, he has played a gig of monumental significance to the people of Liverpool before. Back in 2008 Paul McCartney played the historic football stadium, Anfield, to mark the 2008 Capital of Culture year. He received rave reviews then, and nothing much has changed during the intermittent years, as the spritely pensioner sent the ECHO arena into raptures.
It was an emotionally occasion, bringing Fathers and sons together for a mutual love of The Beatles that is ingrained for all those born and bred on Merseyside. But there was an international feel to the concert as well, as tourists and out-of-towners filled the pauses with foreign dialects and accents, having travelled far and wide to see Macca in his home city. Possibly for the last time. It all added to the sense of occasion and was wonderful to behold.
The backing band are a well-oiled machine, tempering the effervescent Paul McCartney as he swings here and there on stage, through the likes of Penny Lane, Eleanor Rigby, The Long And Winding Road. But the song that got everyone on their feet was the timeless track and perhaps the greatest sing-along tune of all time, Hey Jude.
