Sigh...in retrospect, I missed a great event. While I like Sir Paul. And recognize his contributions to rock music, both as a Beatle & solo. I guess I'm just getting too dang old for concerts. But this is one I shoulda made an exception for. I am pleased with the way it came off and all of the positive feedback attendees gave it.

it was great and I'm no spring chicken either but the crowd was really easy going and it wasn't a big hassle.Parking was easy and we were in and out without a problem. Don't be afraid to try it next time-I'm so glad I went.

I'd say this concert was a tremendous economic win for the city and the entire metro area.

Oh, and Paperback Writer may be one of my new favorite songs. It was amazing to hear that live!
I can't get Band On The Run out of my head. I thought it sounded great! I was joking with a friend and saying wouldn't it be funny if he ended with Helter Skelter and wouldn't you know, he just about did! I wasn't even expecting to hear that one.

... or Ob-la-di

Just an awesome night!

Crew Chief: There's no such thing as too old. It was as chill as could possibly be. By far, the best concert I've been to (and I've been to quite a few in Cincinnati and elsewhere).

Everything I read said Reds this and Reds that. Why is that true since the county still holds the major bill on the ballpark construction? Seems to me who has the say on how the ballpark is used is out of whack. I would think the good citizens of Hamilton Co. should have the say over all other uses and revenues. Just another example of how our politicos manage to circumvent the general populace and stick them with the bill.

I understand the City as a whole profited. But what was the attendance, 41,000 at an average cost of what $50 a ticket or $2 million dollars. And the County profited by $150,00 dollars or 7%. Seems to me the principle owner got had.
