Paul McCartney Concert # 28

Poster for Norway, rare 1st edition.
Tonight Paul McCartney is playing a concert in Norway again. It has been 11 years since he last played here, just as it had been 11 years between that and the previous Norway concert as well. Of course, the longest we had to wait was the 17 years between his first (Wings 1972) and second concert in Norway. So you'll understand, to see Paul McCartney in between, one has to travel. This will be the 27th time I'm attending his concerts. Here's the list:
