KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Downtown Kansas City experienced a little Beatlemania Wednesday night. Sir Paul McCartney was back in town and performing at the Sprint Center.
There may have been some Wings fans or even Sir Paul the solo artist fans. FOX 4’s Eric Burke ran into Barb Adams by chance Wednesday afternoon. She's from Grain Valley and has seen McCartney nearly two-dozen times, the first not too far from the Sprint Center at Municipal Auditorium in 1964.
It was a brief sighting, Sir Paul showing up for his concert at the Sprint Center, but even a glimpse from just a few feet away was exciting for his fans.
“I am here to see my favorite man, the man that has never disappointed me, is Paul McCartney,” she said.
She first saw him perform nearly 50 years ago on September 17, 1964.
“I was in the 8th grade, it was held here at Municipal,” she said.
That was the day The Beatles took the stage for a whopping 33 minutes.
“You could get floor tickets, which was down on the field, but they were $7.50 and my mom just thought that was outrageous! So I got $4.50 and I sat in the stadium,” she explained.
Barb paid a little more than that for Sir Paul's latest concert, but she doesn't mind.
“This is my treat, this is one night that I get to feel like I’m 14 years old again, and totally have a great time,” she said.
Barb wanted us to get a message to him, but it's probably better coming from her:
“Hi Paul, I’ve always wanted to tell you thank you! Really given a lot of fun times to my life and the one message I would always want to say is: Thank you, Paul McCartney!” she said.
