If I am not mistaken, Paul played DC and Maryland last year as well as multiple dates in NY. He loves playing in NY so it's not inconceivable that he'd play there again someday.

Yeah I'm pretty hopeful! And my mom already said that she'd definitely get tickets if he comes anywhere close, because both of my parents love Paul as well :) (Though not to my obsessive degree hahaha)

^Could it be a really, really early birthday present maybe?

Haha you mean a 10-month-early birthday present? Yeah she'll go for that all right.

Oomu, good luck convincing your mom. My own 'rents are not concertgoers themselves so I could see them calling this a waste of money too. However, I believe the tix for AZ start at $45 (not including fees/taxes), so while it's not "cheap", it's not an impossible price to pay. I hope she says yes; Paul is a force of nature when he performs live.

Thanks Penny, I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I've heard that his concerts are pretty much life-changing.  :P

If it's the same basic setlist he's been doing since the 80's, I'll pass!

I agree. Pittsburghs building a new venue for the Penguins and theres been rumours and buzz that Pauls going to open it up with a show. My only problem is that I have no desire to go. I've seen him 5 times already and each time, it loses some of its luster. It would take a drastic change in the setlist for me to even consider going at this stage.

By all means though, if you havent already seen him, go and enjoy the experience.

I hope he does...I find it hard to believe that Paul would stop playing in the US after only three locations (CA, AZ, FL). I feel like there are more to come, IMO.

I'm so excited... You people are not helping. ha2ha I started daydreaming about the Hollywood Bowl during lecture today and even made a countdown in my organizer. :P

Got three tickets for Hampden Park, Glasgow this morning.
The seats are in the block right in front of the centre of the stage, 15 rows back.
I cannot wait until June! I'm taking my daughter to her first Macca show as well, which will be great.
I'm hoping he plays Mull of Kintyre since it's in Scotland.

Oh my god. I just had my heart broken into a thousand tiny little pieces.

My local radio station was giving away Paul tickets to anyone who could answer a "Paul trivia" question. So I tuned in and whipped my phone out but they were answering someone's call at the time and asked him "Who did Paul write the song 'When I'm 64' for?" Guy answered "His dad," I cried, he won. That's not even the right answer. *weeps*

Apparently they're doing it all week but to be quite honest I don't have a whole lot of hope. Will still keep trying though.

^^Not to upset you, but Paul DID write When I'm 64 for his dad didn't he? For his dad's 64th birthday when Paul was only a teenager?

I dunno, I read that he wrote it when he was a teenager but then recorded it finally for his dad's 64th birthday. But that's not the pointttt Emilyyyyyy.

Aha! I found it. It's in A Hard Day's Write. I knew I'd read it somewhere. That would have driven me nuts if I hadn't gone and looked for it, haha.

Quote
Although the song was written with his father in mind, it was coincidental that he was 64 when it was eventually released. "My dad was probably only 56 when I wrote it," Paul said. "Retirement age in Britain is 65, so maybe I thought 64 was a good prelude. But probably 64 just worked well as a number."

And I know that I'm being picky and honestly, I would have answered the question the same way, but goddddd.
