Paul McCartney is coming to Petco Park. This will be the first full-venue concert at Petco Park since Madonna played the ballpark on November 4, 2008. With the stage located in center field, and tickets ranging in price from $23 to $253.50, capacity for the Paul McCartney show will be just over 42,000. A seating map visual is attached.

Tickets for Paul's return to San Diego will be on sale to the general public Friday, July 18 at 10 a.m. American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Monday, July 14 at 10 a.m. Padres Season Ticket Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Thursday, July 17 at 10 a.m. Tickets will be available at www.padres.com/PaulMcCartney and all Ticketmaster locations. Suites and premium hospitality spaces will be available for purchase by phone at 619.795.5060 or by email at suites@padres.com.


Will definitely see if I can get a couple of the lower price seats. Hope I can get them because I think this is going to sell out super fast given that this is his first concert in San Diego since Paul's first concert in the city since the Wings Over America tour passed through in 1976. I'm already behind the 8 ball since I don't have American Express and I'm not a Season Ticket holder. Sigh.

Just get Paul McCartney and Wings: Rockshow

It's front row seat... and a tad cheaper.

I checked out that very same DVD from the Library last month for my Mom because she is such a huge Beatles/McCartney fan.

I own that Mofo. I bought it the week it came out. I absolutely love that era of Paul.

Your mom has good taste.

We went to a local outdoor show last night to see Miss Jubiliee


A beautiful picture perfect night of swing jazz. Brought some food and wine and just enjoyed the players playing the crowd watching.

Have a few more lined up for the summer.

Makes me want to break out some Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Michelle Shocked

Our local news (FOX5) is giving away a pair of Tickets to Paul's upcoming show. All we have to do is watch said newscast, wait for the Code of the day and then enter on their Faceboook page and hope for the best that ME, MYSELF and I, win a pair of tickets! Come on, just let me win something in my life just once!!

Ugh!!!

The upside is that this contest will be every day, but I don't know for how long and I can't stand watching this amount of news in a given day. I have to watch in the morning for the Comic Con Passes as well. So, yeah, I'm very well versed on all things news. Ack!!

Well, just as I suspected, it's only the first day of ticket sales and the ****tiest seats are already way too much. $90 for each ticket. I'm out. I will keep an eye on eBay and Craiglist and see if there are any people will to unload at a huge discount the closer it gets to Showtime. FYI, the "Service Fee" is a f*cking joke.

Good luck.

I have won a few things over the years.

Speaking of concerts, my wife and I took advantage of one of the best summers evah, by going again to our local outdoor venue to see a Johnny Cash Tribute Band. Johnny Cash doesn’t really do anything for me, but I was crossing my fingers, I’d discover something new.

The band was good and the singer pretty much nailed Mr. Cash.

My problem… all the songs sound exactly the same.

After an hour… got bored and left, went home to watch Lost. Got kinda bored with that too. Deep in the second season and they are still using the ‘flashback’ to tell multiple stories. It’s getting worn out.

Dogs of Society (Elton John Tribute Band)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7zDiaY3vow

So I've heard about this band all summer and made plans... twice to check them out. Last night we got the opportunity to see them. It was a perfect evening and a blast. At our large outdoor amphitheater, they started their performance at sunset and rocked for 2-1/2 hours. The weather was perfect. The crowd was huge and we got to enjoy a very entertaining evening. While not perfect, these guys did an outstanding job. I've seen Elton John quite a few times, and these guys did a very commendable tribute to the hits.

This was the last of the free concerts at the amphitheater, but I think they solidly displayed a venue like this can and will bring good talent and be very profitable to the community. I hope to see bigger and better concerts in the future.

My brother wants to go see Thunderhead next weekend, but not at $20/head. I've seen them and they are good. I just don't know about $20 worth though. I'll look for deals if the tickets are not selling.

I saw Tumbleweeds last week. Not a band, but the actual tumbleweed blowing down the street. That should tell you how slim the pickings are here. You'd think I'd live out in the middle of Nowhere Bumf*ck with the lack of quality bands coming through here. Sigh.

Going to Australian Pink Floyd Saturday. I bought 4 tickets, because all said they want to go. No longer friend, decided he didn't like the tickets I bought and backed out. AND, went and got his own tickets.

Still steaming.

I've been trying to sell the two tickets. Can't believe how hard it is to do. So giving one to my brother and whoever else.

Fuuuuuuuck

Hope you have fun. Bring back some photos, t-shits and a wayward drumstick tossed out into the crowd!!
