Default Anybody ever seen Paul McCartney in concert?

Just found out Paul McCartney will be playing a show here in Ottawa in July, his first (and most likely only) show ever.

No real questions about the concert itself, I'm sure it'll be a Golden Girls hippie-style reunion, just wondering if you have any advice in regards to purchasing tickets. The local paper has warned tickets will sell out in under an hour, although I have a feeling it'll be a little quicker. Just looking for some advice here. Getting excited about his appearance, but want to get tickets first!

Thanks!

i saw him back in 05. It was the damn best. Don't quote me on this, but i think i actually got my tickets on ebay. I was close enough to the stage to feel the heat from the pyrotechnics during Live and Let Die. It cost me a bundle, but i would do it again in a second.

I was able to get tickets through the presale. Only paid $100/seat, so they aren't the best, but its in an arena vs a stadium, and there's a very big high def jumbo tron, so I should be fine sight wise.

How long was the show you went to? Trying to get an idea as to how long it'll be.

Same here...I was in Row 12 in Boston. I paid 250 for the ticket and it was worth every penny. The guy plays for 3 hours straight...awesome show. He's playing at Fenway Park this summer and the tickets sold out in 5 minutes. BTW,the crowd was a mix,not just golden girls.
