Paul McCartney secret L.A. show tonight. More reports + details

So here’s the million dollar question?  Are any of you dear readers luck enough to be attending the surprise, in-store, small venue gig, this evening?  I guess you wouldn’t even be able to answer because you’d be in line right now.   Maybe they have wireless outside the music store.  Well, if you do snag a wristband and any of you do attend please send us your reports of the show.  We’d love to hear about it all.  Dam west coast.

It looks like tonight will be a lot of fun at such an intimate venue. 

Here’s what we’ve read.

Equipped with folding chairs and sleeping bags, hundreds of fans of Paul McCartney lined up at a funky Hollywood record store on Tuesday to snag wristbands for a free show there by the ex-Beatle.

Toni Johnson, 55, stood at the front of the line. Wearing a Paul McCartney concert T-shirt, she said she flew in from Chicago late Saturday and had been in line since Monday afternoon.

“It was noisy, cold. I was trying to sleep upright in a chair. I’m on two hours of sleep,” she said. “But for Paul, it’s worth it. His music touches my soul and puts a smile on my face like no one else can.”

McCartney will play an all-ages concert at Sunset Boulevard’s Amoeba Music at 7:30 p.m. PDT Wednesday, his spokesman Paul Freundlich confirmed.

The wristbands will be given out starting at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

“This has not been finalized, but we’re likely looking at a minimum of 300 people inside,” Freundlich told The Associated Press.

Released earlier this month, McCartney’s newest album, “Memory Almost Full,” has sped up the Billboard charts, and ranks No. 3.

The album, his 21st solo work, received impressive reviews from critics for its blend of nostalgia and melody.

An impromptu gig by McCartney two weeks ago at the Highline Ballroom in New York City sparked talk of a tour, but McCartney has no tour plans at this time, Freundlich said.

On Tuesday, Danville resident Sharon White, 43, stood in line with her son, Alexander, 9.

White said she has been a McCartney fan since she was 4 years old. She first saw McCartney, with his band Wings, in 1976.

This was her son’s third time seeing McCartney, she said.

“I’m a little disappointed that it’s not in a club,” White said. “But we’ll take what we can get. To see him in a small venue is a lifelong dream.”
