Paul McCartney at Golden 1 Center
We paid, we stayed overnight, we saw Paul McCartney, and we made local history by being at Golden 1 center opening night. There was no carmageddon for us as we planned well ahead and booked a room. It was a very orderly couple of blocks walk away. No drama having to find parking.
Sir Paul did a bang up show. Bringing his Rockstar to the almost three hour show. Started a bit late but everyone was in good spirits including the staff and police welcoming everybody.
Only two downers. The speakers up by the huge scoreboard were not working so the sound sounded like it was coming from below us. Minor issue. The bigger issue were the seats in the upper bowl. I know we bought nosebleeds but wow I didn't know we got free vertigo with that purchase. Somewhat joking but the seats were packed in at what seemed to be a very vertical pitch. Walking the stairs caused some pain my knee but mostly felt anxiety over the feel I was tipping over constantly. They say it was built to code and it's not that bad compared with others but the way I felt and several others felt actually being there looking down and having a weird perspective was a bit unnerving. So do yourself a favor. pay for better tickets.
