Macca Set List For Washington

Postby linclink » Sun Aug 02, 2009 9:00 am

Here's one report below...
"Paul McCartneyappeared on stage in a black suit, the jacket with a Beatlesque Nehru collar, and wearing black boots. His one announced "wardrobe change" for the evening came when he removed his suit jacket after "Flaming Pie."
Here's an article from Maccablog...
"The setlist was identical to N.Y, with one exception.

After "Calico Skies," Paul noted that someone here in a certain house in Washington might want to sing this, and he played "Michelle." At the end of the song, he said, "That's for you, Mr. President."

I thought overall his voice was strong, and he delivered well on "I'm Down," which would really test him with the high notes. There were a few scripted bits of banter between songs, such as the familiar story about George and the ukelele on "Something." After "Foxy Lady" he noted how Jimi Hendrix heard the "Sgt Pepper" album on a Friday and was performing it in concert two days later.

He kept his emotions in check after dedicating "Here Today" to John.

At the end of that song, he quipped he needed to change the suicidal mood , and pulled out the mandolin for "Dance Tonight." "Back in the USSR" and the pyrotechnics show during "Live and Let Die" are concert staples of his that are guaranteed to bring the house down. "
