Paul McCartney - Roundhouse - Thursday 25th October

After the hassle of getting tickets (crashed websites, phone system dying etc), I was not happy to receive an email from the Roundhouse saying that they were not sending out tickets, but I had to go to the venue early in the day to collect a wristband. As I work in London I was able to do so - I'm sure many were not so lucky - hope this isn't the shape of things to come for big name acts.

Anyway, after a long queue to get in, I was able to get near the front and enjoy the rarity of seeing a "living legend" in such a small venue. A set featuring lots of Beatles songs went down well and the whole thing was on BBC TV and Radio, The cameraman even decided to zoom in on me for some reason during "Get Back".
