ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – As Sir Paul McCartney readies to play a sold-out crowd at Busch Stadium, Saturday night, excited fans arrived hours early in anticipation.

"I just one day heard him on the radio and their music really inspired me and I really loved listening to the Beatles" said Eve Heavner.

Heavner is taking in her first McCartney concert with her sister and her mom.

"It's a once in a lifetime opportunity" said Regina Heavner.  "Absolutely thrilled to be here tonight.  I'm really looking forward to it, the weather's looking good so I think it's going to be a great night" she said.

McCartney's solo concert, the One on One world tour, comes near the 50th anniversary of when The Beatles played the old Busch stadium in 1966.  Saturday's concert will bring out people from across the region and across generations.

"This is probably about my 30th concert to see Paul McCartney" said Barb Adams.  "The biggest Beatles fan and I saw him what over 50 years ago with the Beatles" she said.

The show is scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m.
