What an amazing concert. Macca on fantastic form: looking good, singing beautifully, rocking out. Superb backing band, and, er, decent back catalogue. The set list speaks for itself.
Junior’s Farm – Wings
All My Loving
Jet – more Wings, off Band On The Run
Drive My Car
Sing the Changes – a recent Fireman song
The Night Before – one of my all time favourites
Let Me Roll It – off Band On The Run, another absolute favourite, with a bit of Hendrix’s Foxy Lady thrown in
Paperback Writer – how good does this get?
The Long and Winding Road
Come And Get It – the number one hit they wrote for Badfinger
Nineteen Hundred and Eight Five – Wings
Maybe I’m Amazed – early solo McCartney, passionate
I’ve Just Seen A Face – off Help
Blackbird – protest song, apparently; got a huge cheer
Here Today – ode to John
Dance Tonight – recent rock’n’roll song with mandolin – gotta let him play something new!
Mrs Vandebilt – Wings (Oh, eh, oh!)
Eleanor Rigby – yeah, just Eleanor Rigby
Something – started on the ukelele – tribute to George
Band on the Run – loved it!
Back In The USSR – those Ukraine girls bound to feature in next year’s Euro Championship coverage
I’ve Got A Feeling
A Day In The Life/ Give Peace a Chance – yes, I’ve heard Paul McCartney sing Day In The Life!
Let It Be
Live and Let Die – spectacular – fireworks’n’all
Hey Jude – what to say? Anthemic
The Word (from Rubber Soul) and All You Need Is Love and more than a hint of She Loves You
Day Tripper – rocked!
Get Back – Ronnie Wood joined in
Yesterday – I’ve heard Macca sing Yesterday!
Helter Skelter – wild
Golden Slumbers/ Carry That Weight/ The End – that brilliant ending to Abbey Road. Fantastic conclusion to tonight’s show
A feast, a privilege.
