Paul McCartney plays Safeco Field, joined by former Nirvana members

Sir Paul McCartney salutes a sold-out crowd of over 45,000 at Safeco Field before playing Friday night as part of his "Out There" tour. This marks the first time a major public concert was held at the baseball venue, requiring a crew of about 250 to begin preparations nearly a week in advance.
