Brazilians really love Paul McCartney.
A makeshift community dubbed the “Paul McCartney Village” recently popped up in Brazil. The village was created by fans who camped out for days before the former [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beatle[/lastfm]‘s recent show in the country. The village lined the road leading to the Beira Rio Stadium.
According to reports, devoted fans began pitching tents in anticipation of the show, which was McCartney’s first in Brazil in 18 years. Despite his long absence, the former Beatle says that the feeling is mutual.
“I love South American audiences,” McCartney told NME. “I always think I have Latin blood because I connect so strongly with their love of music and their love of rhythm and their love of melody, so I always feel like I have a very big bond with South American people and Latin people in general. So yeah, I’m bonding, man!”
McCartney is set to play a series of South American tour dates that will wrap up just before Christmas. His next show is on November 10 in Argentina at River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires.
