Paul is Back in US

Log of Paul McCartney show "Back in the US" on Compaq Center, Houston, October 13th, 2002
·         3 Hours of emotions, no intermission!
·         I can't remember a single song that I could say: "Oh, that's a shame that he didn't sing it!"

·         Let alone his extremely good humour (a little Brittish), that made us laugh a lot, with several short stories.
·         Let alone his amazingly good band, excellent musicians, all singing back vocals very well.
·         Let alone the 20 minutes introduction with several Circus Artists on a Cirque-du-Soleil-like performance!
·         Let alone the immense Screen System, with One very Big Screen and 18 smaller ones!

Well, prior to this show, I had seen “In The Flesh”, a show from Roger Waters, held in Woodlands Pavillion in 2000, when the bass player and greatest lyricist  of Pink Floyd performed some of the best Pink Floyd Classics, alongwith some amazing hits from his best solo album “Amused to Death”. That performance had granted the title of “Best Ever In My Life” and “A Dream Come True”. After the night of October 13th, 2002, at least the first has been changed. This Paul’s is now the Best!
