I know it isn't just because I'm a musician. I know it isn't just because I've played in (and listened to) many outdoor concerts. I know it isn't just because I've spent hours in a recording studio while an engineer struggled for hours trying to get the drums "miked up" and levelled. I know it isn't just because my eyes saw McCartney's bloated drummer pounding on a wide open high hat, while my ears clearly heard a tightly closed high hat during "Baby, You Can Drive My Car". I know it was a canned performance because of common sense and simple observation (there were no microphones anywhere near the drums).
As far as Shania Twain's half time performance, the criticisms might not have been so blistering had Sting and Gwen Stefani not chosen to perform their medley "warts and all". It was evident to anyone who was listening that the difference in sound quality between the two performances was undeniable.
Those who continue to deny that McCartney's show was canned are living in a fantasy world. I fully expected it to be pre-recorded, so my only disappointment was the fact that so many people actually thought it was "live".
