Thousands of Paul McCartney fans braved the heat for up to two hours before the Intrust Bank Arena opened it’s doors, but one local group skipped the line and received the VIP treatment.

McCartney extended an invitation to the employees at Wichita’s Envision, who are blind or visually impaired. The Envision organization strives to help the blind and visually impaired, and more than half of it’s 400 employees are blind or low vision.

McCartney gave Envision 13 tickets. Each employee entered to win the tickets by writing an essay about how music inspires them.

The 13 employees who won couldn’t believe it.

“To experience such a beautiful sound such as Paul McCartney couldn’t get much better than that,” one employee said.

Charles Wilks just graduated with a music performance degree. Something he says McCartney’s music played a role in.

“A lot of it inspired me to pursue my career in music,” Wilks said.

As McCartney played for the Wichita crowd, the Envision bunch soaked in every moment.

“What a fantastic human being. It speaks of compassion and his ability to just think about the little people,” Wilks said.

“Another great day hiking in Colorado peace and love,” Ringo dressed in black pants with white trim, a black T-shirt and a black baseball cap, worn backward, said in a Twitter post on Wednesday.
Ringo didn’t say where he was hiking in Colorado, but the setting of the photo is rural, with a one-lane road, high grasses, wooden rail fences and mountains in the background.
