Long-time fans excited to see Paul McCartney in Spokane
SPOKANE, Wash. — It’s safe to say anyone who has been lucky enough to get tickets within the last two months is excited to see Paul McCartney perform in Spokane.
But nothing beats the excitement of the die-hard fans — those who have old t-shirts, tickets and other memorabilia of Paul McCartney and his days with The Beatles.
Denise Guiles is one of those fans. She says Paul McCartney is the cutest Beatle and is a legend.
She and her sister grew up listening to The Beatles and this will be Guiles’ second time seeing Sir Paul in concert.
The first time was in Seattle, 32 years ago.
“I saw him at the Kingdome in 1990. March 29th, 1990, and he put on an awesome show. It was absolutely amazing,” said Guiles. “When I heard he was coming, I thought, ‘I am so going to that.'”
Another big Beatles fan coming from a little farther away is Deni Claypool.
She’ll be driving to the show from Moscow, ID with her two daughters who are 35 and 37.
Claypool says she grew up listening to the Beatles and so did her daughters.
This will be the third time she’s seen McCartney live after attending shows in Missoula, MT and Berkley, CA.
“When I saw him in Griz Stadium all those years ago, I thought, I got to go, cause this will be the last time. So I was thrilled that I get one more time,” said Claypool. “I mean, what, he’s pushing 80! You know, with the stamina of someone less than half his age, so I’m really thrilled that I don’t have to travel too far to see Sir Paul, I’m so excited.”
If you’re a fan excited to see the show — show us your pictures! Before, during and after!
The beer garden and merch table in front of the Spokane Arena open at 4 p.m.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and Paul McCartney is expected to perform at 8 p.m.
