At Harvey's Outdoor Amphitheatre in Lake Tahoe, Nevada USA. June 25th, 2017.

Tough shoot, shot from the sound booth about 75 meters away, 1st 2 songs only!

At 76 years old this man is absolutely incredible...

Ya crazy using a 400m with a 2x extender on a crop body (1280m equivalent) shooting at f/11 manual focus. Good thing there was good light, thanks for the compliments... Wish I had a 400m f/2.8!

Well well done except the lighting makes Paul look OLD. Since he was born only a few years before me it must be the lighting. Can't be anything else.

Well Paul is now 75 years young and I don't know of any other musician at his age that can perform as well. I saw Gordon Lightfoot at 75 last year and he could barely perform. I also saw Al Jarreau at 75 about 8 months before he died and even though he sang quite well he could barely walk or stand. BB King, Ray Charles are a couple others that come to mind that just didn't have it towards the end like Paul. A good reminder of why to go out and see the folks while you can...
