As close as you'll get to a "Fab 4" reunion
14 January 2003 | by (Waco, Texas) – See all my reviews

If the recent tragedies in his life have affected Paul McCartney, you sure couldn't tell by watching him on stage. Despite the deaths of his wife, Linda, and bandmate, George, McCartney looks and sounds like his old "Beatle" self in this documentary of his 2002 U.S. tour.

McCartney and his new traveling band (only one holdover from the last tour) play the hell out of all the Beatles, Wings & solo hits you know and love: "Hello-Goodbye", "Yesterday", "Live and Let Die", "Hey Jude", "My Love" and many more. The sound quality on this DVD are as close as you'll get to a live performance without shelling out $100+ for tickets.

But the disc is more than a concert film: It also gives us the tiniest glimpse of what it takes behind the scenes to put on a road show like McCartney's. We see and hear from truck drivers, gaffers, even the guy who sets off the pyrotechnics.

And you get to see the fans: some as young as 10, others as old as 65; many crying as they hear the familiar notes that take them back to a happier, simpler time.

A fine record of a pretty good tour, especially for those who couldn't be there in person.
