quote:On his past world tours, Paul makes very few changes, so we shouldn't be surprized that there are so few changes. The idea was to play cities he missed last time and play the bigger venues as well as so many people didn't see him the first time. I guess there were lots of people who didn't see him the first time. Seems like I was always reading about fans flying here, there and everywhere last Spring.
She's Leaving Home is very personal to me and I am just thrilled with the addition of that song.
Seems like some people really believed all the rumors running around and are now kind of angry.
I'm so thankful that I'll be able to afford to go see him again.
I'm not surprised at all. I've said many times myself that Paul makes very few changes. I just wish he'd start.
quote:As I have said many times before, good Lord, people, he can't please everyone. Imagine having that monkey on your back---OK..I have so many songs I could possibly do--how do i give everyone something they will love? He tries a good mix of the "hits" with some surprises thrown in. Sure I'd like to see About You, Rainsdrops, Some Ram and some others, but I can't really complain. He's back, and I'm excited for the 4 other people going with us who DIDNT see the first leg. That's why I have mixed emotions about the set list. I DO want them to see basically the same show that I did in April. They sure have heard me talk baout it enough. I'm happy to see him again since the memory is fading, and fast. She's Leaving Home is awesome, and a review on the other site said that Rusty, Abe & Brian do an awesome job of doing the JL vocals. They said it was incredible. I can't wait.
As for the 90 minute thing, it was clear to me that was BEFORE the 1st leg, when he was putting together the original set list.
I see what you're saying, man. Like I said, I know there are tons of people who haven't seen him yet. But even BEFORE I saw him for the first time ever in April, I was sick of the same songs. I'm not bashing Paul. I know having that "monkey on his back" must be tough. But to be honest with you, if I never heard a live version of Yesterday, Hey Jude, Let It Be, Live and Let Die, Can't Buy me Love, Let Me Roll It, Fool On The Hill, etc again, then I wouldn't really care. If that makes me a jerk, fine. I just think Paul sells himself short sometimes. He has an AMAZING catalog, but continues to play the same songs he did in 89 and 93, with very few changes. It's almost like he just neglects a HUGE part of his solo career. (AND Beatles career for that matter.) Am I complaining about the show I saw in April? No way, man. The BEST show I have ever seen in my life. But I'm telling you, if I hear the first notes of Yesterday one more time, I'm gonna puke. Substitute it with Heart of the Country or even Young Boy for that matter. I'm sorry, I know I'm probably sounding like a jerk to many here, but it's time for a change. I'm sorry.
