Macca Mania in Brazil & Video Exclusive

Macca Mania in Brazil & Video Exclusive

Paul's first show in Brazil since 1993 drew some frenzied scenes.
The 66,000 tickets sold out in a matter of hours when they went on
sale last month. Fans desperate to get to the front of the stage to
watch Sunday's show had camped out from Wednesday night. Thousands of
fans took over an area by the stadium entrance to set up camp just
waiting for the doors to open. Locals referred to the site as the
McCartney village. The expectant concert goers, passed the time by
busking and listening to their favourite Macca tunes, dressing up as
their idol and enjoying the glorious sunshine. Stadium workers even
put up some portable toilets up to cope with the numbers!

One fan Hebe Santiago, 27, who had traveled from Rio De
Janeiro with her friends told us before the doors opened, "I took
this week off from work so I could camp out here with my friends,
we've had such a great time. We are so excited. We have to be at the
front. I was too young last time Paul played in Brazil but my parents
said it's the best show in the world. I can't wait". Before the
concert the hotel Paul was staying at was besieged with fans and media
making it difficult for Paul to even leave to get to the show. The
concert was a massive success. Paul played for nearly three hours and
rocked the city of Porto Alegre. The concert attracted a multi
generational audience and made headline news throughout Brazil. Next
stop Argentina.
