Paul McCartney showed up last night at the Ford Center, the first-ever appearance of any Beatle in the Sooner State. I didn't go, reasoning that I had probably better things to do with $250 or perhaps rationalizing my failure to pay attention to the ticket-sale schedule but by all accounts a splendid time was guaranteed for all.
And a tip of the fedora to Gene Triplett (and if it wasn't Gene, it was Sandi Davis gad, how I hate shared bylines) of The Daily Oklahoman, who quipped: "If they love him this much at 60, he has nothing to worry about four years down the road." Vera, Chuck and Dave are no doubt very much relieved.Posted at 7:21 AM to City Scene , Tongue and Groove
