It’s been just about four years since Paul McCartney played in Colorado. In July of 2010, the Beatle, the then-68-year-old, the “sir” gave the Pepsi Center a “ridiculously charming” and “gorgeous” performance. Is it too soon for us to expect him to come back?
Throughout the month of April McCartney has been announcing a trickle of U.S. shows with the promising tag line, “More dates to be announced.” He started with four — New Orleans, Louisville, Albany and Pittsburgh. Then six more — this time getting dangerously close to Denver with a stop at Salt Lake City’s EnergySolutions Arena. And today, he announced two more. One in Arizona and another in Montana. But each time it comes with the hint that McCartney will be announcing more shows.
Of these shows, McCartney has chosen some important locations from the Beatles’ history. Yesterday, he announced that he will play the final show ever at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park, where the Beatles played their final full concert in 1966. Could another important show be playing the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre, one of four concert sites still in existence where the Beatles played on their 1964 tour? Continuing on that train of thought, 2014 also marks the 50 year anniversary of that show…
Looking at the schedule so far, McCartney will be in the area and have some time around mid-August. Should we keep our fingers crossed or just plan on making the eight-hour drive to the not-yet-sold-out Salt Lake City date?
