Fans flood Miller Park for Paul McCartney

MILWAUKEE - Fans filled Miller Park Tuesday in anticipation for one of the biggest concerts of the year.

Charles Benson talked to fans all night as they waited for doors to open.

Paul McCartney's Milwaukee concert got off to a rocky start Tuesday night.

It started very late, and traffic to get in was backed up until after the concert started. There was a 40 minute delay to get into Miller Park because of long and late sound check by McCartney.

But after everyone was inside, everyone seemed to have a good time.

The roof was open and the stars were definitely out Tuesday night. The biggest star was Sir Paul McCartney. 43,000 fans attended, some traveling from as far away as Las Vegas.

See video of The Beatles in Milwaukee in 1964.
