Paul McCartney last night? It's turning out to be a pretty jaw-dropping week for live shows for me.

I've seen Paul McCartney three times over the past few years, and each time I keep expecting him to start coasting on the nostalgia and phone it in, and every time he only puts on a more energetic show than the last. I strongly suspect that since he returned to touring in 2003 and locked in with his current band, and hasn't really stopped since, being on the road is the thing that just charges his battery and keeps him from growing any older. In fact, he might be aging in reverse!

Read my full review of last night's show on Chicagoist.

Also, last night was the closest I've been to the man—17th row, just off center—and I'm still feeling a little awestruck.
