Paul McCartney announced a mini-tour in the final weeks of this year. He has no date for Seattle but has Nov. 25th set for BC Place in Vancouver B.C. I was provided an inside look at his planned set list. Many songs he will play from his years of WINGS, a few Solo works (New) and for Beatles he favors “Birthday” and “The Night Before”. In early 90’s he loaded the KINGDOME with his music and fans and let’s not forget June 1976, close to 69,000 in the Seattle KINGDOME for WINGS OVER AMERICA. That was the KINGDOME’S first rock concert! He booked 30 rooms at The Edgewater Hotel. I was working there as a food server at the time. Yes, I was there at the show too!
