Last night I got to see Paul McCartney perform live for the first time. The last concert The Beatles gave was at Candlestick Park on August 29, 1966. Now the old, windy and cold Candlestick Park is soon to be demolished. What better way to celebrate its passing than a concert with Sir Paul?
McCartney is 72 years old and still an amazing musician. The band was wonderful as well as the video and fireworks. Just as the three hour concert was ending, the moon rose up over the stadium to join the flickering of myriad cell phones waved in the air by mostly aging baby boomers like myself.
So of course yesterday's haiku commemorates this event:
Paul McCartney played
Candlestick's last moonlit song
we sang all the words
