Took these photos last week when Sir Paul played in Moline, Illinois. Camera rule for the concert was any camera that fit in your front pocket. All I had that fit the bill was my Sony Rx100 vi. Very capable camera but my seat location to the side and slightly behind him limited my ability to get shots I wanted. I wanted to get my Sony RX10 iv in for better zoom range and ability to use external mic. (I took some video for posting on Youtube.) Any way, I wish I had a pair of cargo shorts. Would have worked I think.

Still doing it after all these years. At a young 80 I wrote and delivered a paper analyzing the music of the Beatles, Paul's work included of course.

You did a nice job. Those are very nice photos, the side light adds a bit to them.

Thank you. Someone I may be telling my grandkids I saw.

Great shots! Your perspective makes them personal and gives an "I was there feeling." #1 is a serious wall hanger. 👏👏👏

I'm not sure what shots you "wanted", but I think you got some exceptional shots. Nicely done. I especially like #3 and think that if a little of the black background above and below Sir Paul were edited out that that photo would be "Rolling Stone" worthy. The way Paul is isolated and the lighting make for one great shoot.
