Paul in Miami (4/3)

Jim Abbott of the Orlando Sentinel offers his take on the show at Miami's Sun Life Stadium.

He reminisced about his first trip to Miami, to perform with the Fab Four on the Ed Sullivan show. "It was like paradise," he said. "We were kids from Liverpool and we'd never seen anything like it. And it's still cool."

Also still cool: That timeless Beatles music, performed by the one guy on the planet most qualified to do it. (Sorry, Ringo.) For the record, McCartney still sounds terrific, with a voice nimble enough to turn on a dime from raucous to honey sweet in a set that hit all the obvious targets ("Let It Be," "The Long and Winding Road," "Hey Jude," "Get Back," "Yesterday") as well as a few surprises.
