1965: Remembering Houston's Summer of Beatlemania

Tickets for Sir Paul McCartney's November 14 concert at Minute Maid Park, the once and future Beatle's first show in Houston since 2005, are now on sale at Ticketmaster. Right now.

And just to make sure we make this clear right up front, tickets are now on sale in the usual price range, which goes from reasonable (less than $50 per ticket, plus fees and tax) to River Oaks-reasonable (more than $250, but those people can afford it).

The exorbitant service fees and (in)convienience charges originally tacked onto the prices when the show was announced last Friday, more than $350, were definitely a mistake. We checked, and even took a screencap just for proof.

Oops.
After more than a year in Latin America and Europe, Houston is Sir Paul's second show back in the U.S.S.A. This leg of his "On the Run" tour Sir Paul has since added dates in St. Louis (which beat us by three days), Vancouver and Edmonton. Still no Dallas, but we're kind of hoping he adds San Antonio too, if only to find out if he's as much of an Alamo freak as Phil Collins.

Here's the set list from McCartney's most recent U.S. show, August 4, 2011 at Cincinnati's Great American Ballpark according to setlist.fm anyway):

Hello, Goodbye (Beatles)
Junior's Farm (Wings)
All My Loving (Beatles)
Jet (Wings)
Drive My Car (Beatles)
Sing the Changes (The Fireman song, Paul's experimental project with producer Youth)
The Night Before (Beatles)
Let Me Roll It (Wings)
Paperback Writer (Beatles)
The Long and Winding Road (Beatles)
Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five (Wings)
Let 'Em In (Wings)

That is a grand total of 37 songs, in what has got to be well north of two hours. Maybe even a bargain at those erroneous service charges.

We caught his show in Yankee Stadium last July, when he began this current tour. McCartney played for close to three hours, and sounded great. Amazing!

Somehow got 2 front row seats. Of the upper deck, over in the $5 Astros tickets section. I may be more psyched for this than I am for ACL.

Snagged some the other day, I may be in the nosebleeds, but this is probably the last chance to see him in Houston.

I got the 4 cheap seats & the usual fees at presale. He played almost 3 hours at Dallas in 2009. Cannot wait!*screams like a teenager*
