Blogaroo: Friday Recap

The Blogaroo is back! Brad, Laura, and Keefer are spending the weekend in Manchester, Tennessee at the Bonnaroo Music And Arts Festival. Check out their commentary and some of the backstage interviews and performances below!


Brad’s Recap

McCartney6Day 2

Brad Holtz here, live from Bonnaroo on Saturday morning. As hard as it is to believe, I’ve been to nine of these things. Nine times… Over the years, I’ve seen some really cool music at this 700-acre farm in the middle of nowhere. Last night marked not only the coolest-ever Bonnaroo moment, but perhaps the coolest music moment I’ve ever had the good fortune to experience. I watched Sir Paul McCartney play for nearly three hours from a platform 20 feet above the stage. Pinch me.

He opened with a rollicking rendition of “Eight Days A Week” followed by “Junior’s Farm,” a track he laid down right here in Tennessee back in the early 70s. Along the way, there were plenty of Beatles and Wings classics, alongside some you might not expect. “Let Me Roll It” (a personal favorite), “1985,” “Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite” and “Listen To What The Man Said” were perfect surprises on a night punctuated by an ever-youthful, high-energy performance by the rock legend.

Being backstage before and after Paul’s concert, the security scene was more reminiscent of the arrival of a sitting president. A multi-car motorcade, a large contingency of police and plain-clothes security officers, helicopters in the air. If you think about it, though, is there a more famous person in the world than Paul McCartney? Think about it. And here he was, in the middle of a field in Manchester, TN with 80,000 fans. It was certainly a night to remember.

Other Friday highlights for me: Calexico, Of Monsters & Men, and Passion Pit to name a few. Our pal Keefer is here too, interviewing many of the artists who come backstage to perform. Enjoy the conversations and live songs.
