GREEN BAY, Wis. (WLUK) -- The wait was over when Sir Paul McCartney's tour landed in Green Bay.

McCartney is no stranger to Wisconsin. He's had shows in Milwaukee in the past and he performed in Madison earlier this week.

Now, the former Beatle performed for the first time at Lambeau Field Saturday night.

Before the concert, fans were already making it clear they were excited for the legendary singer's "Freshen Up Tour."

"He's a living legend. I mean, he’s on my bucket list," said Barb G.

"Oh Beatles we love you," fans sang.

People tailgated not for the Packers but the Beatles legend himself. Many fans are seeing him for the second and third time.

"He tells stories during the concert," a fan told FOX 11. "He told this Jimi Hendrix story last time and I just hope he tells it again."

But never before in Green Bay.

"Lambeau's special it just is," said one fan.

"At Lambeau field it doesn’t get any better than that," said another.

"This is my fourth Paul concert. I’m going to see Ringo this summer. My wife made me this hat," said a fan.

"Go Pack go" turned to "go Paul go."

Many fans showed their dedication to the icon with tour shirts spanning decades and made the trip from around the country to see him.

Ellen Gates traveled from California.

"I came in for the weekend to see Paul McCartney at Lambeau," she said.

Gates has been a fan since the 1960s.

"When he was the on the 'Ed Sullivan Show'... my lip prints are probably still on our old black and white TV."

"He's just an entertainer he really is," said another fan.

While McCartney's been performing for decades, fans seem to never tire of seeing him take the stage.

"If we can do that when we’re almost 77 I think we’ll all be doing pretty well," said Barb Bloomer.

Green Bay and Ashwaubenon offered fans a chance to listen to Beatles tribute bands leading up to the concert.

On Wednesday, Green Bay temporarily turned City Deck Court into Abbey Road, the iconic Beatles album.
