You can always swim.
but... "I can't swim!"
No, actually I can
Hehe, swimming across the Tasman to see Paul/Ringo... that would probably be the ultimate test to prove I'm a fan
Thanks for the comment and picture, Hello Goodbye - made me grin broadly (grin)
Thanks Octie, yeah, I'm excited. I have never seen Paul in concert before, but I'm thrilled about seeing my favoritest member of my favoritest band at Coachella. I have seen Ringo before in concert and that was fun. I wonder if the Beatles have ever played in NZ before? Or did they only do Australia?...
Oh, yeahyeahyeah, they came to NZ too
And to our Windy Welly (aka Wellington
) at that. Nowadays it looks like most bands/artists forget that Wellington is actually the *capital of NZ*, so when they do come down here, they only perform in Auckland
(of course, Auckland is far bigger/has many more people than Wellington and it would make more commercial sense to perform in Auckland, but that doesn't prevent me from ranting about it
Here's a piccie of the Beatles when they were here
Yay, they've got tiki necklaces and all
Only Paul is looking at the camera properly, good on him!
I read in some special edition of our newspaper once that the reporter who covered their concert back then is still deaf in one ear because of all the screaming
And the newspaper also said that John and Ringo met some (distant) relatives here in Wellington
[EDIT] Hang on!! I just looked up the Beatles's visit on the NZ history website and... the relatives that Ringo met up with are exactly from the suburb where we live! (shock) So... he just might have taken a stroll in the park next to our house, or something... and if I go back in time right now and walk out into our street, I just might meet 1964-Ringo
Oops, I better stop talking and get back to my assignment ><
Have fun looking forward to seeing Paul!
