Unfortunately, I haven't seen Paul McCartney, live, since August 15, 1966 at the DC Stadium in Washington, DC. The Ronettes, Bobby Hebb and the Cyrkle were the opening acts.

During one of the songs, a spectator jumped over what looked like a snow fence in front of the stands, ran over to the stage setup on second base and tried to jump on John Lennon's back while the Beatles were in the middle of a song. John dodged him and by then the police reached the stage and escorted the guy away. During some songs, the fans were screaming so loudly that I couldn't identify the song being played.

The price of each admission ticket which my father bought for me and my two siblings was $5.00, which seemed rather high price at the time and is the rough equivalent of 35.5 in today's dollars.

I hope I have an opportunity to see Paul again, especially now that he plays Beatle songs at his concerts.
