Pick set list if The Beatles toured today

Postby panposs » Tue Oct 02, 2012 10:37 am

Ok I know it's impossible but if John and George were still with us and they had reformed and toured today, what songs would be in set list?
Structure it like a McCartney concert with 35-40 songs including an acoustic section and a couple of encores etc.
Would they each sing a solo song? Eg Imagine, Maybe I'm Amazed or Band on the Run and All things Must Pass or My Sweet Lord?
I will give it a crack soon but too tired now and about to enter my golden slumbers however thought I would post while I remembered.
Good luck!

It's hard to say, cause it's more than likely their voices wouldn't hold up to the youthful glory we all love so much, but since it's just a flight of fancy...

A first set comprising of a mixture of studio albums of just the four of them.
2nd acoustic set of Paul doing a his bit of solo or Beatles material, (acoustic only)
3rd - John the same
4th - George the same
5th - Ringo where he begins "With a Little Help From My Friends" singing the first verse slower in acapella (by himself, snapping his fingers), then stopping and asking for a little help from his friends, where John, Paul and George return and help him do a couple Beatle Ringo songs, and Ringo asks for some more help from some other friends. At this point another stage is rolled out with orchestra and other backing musicians, and a few more friends, their sons & wifes, for the set containing the more complex Beatle songs and a few solo ones mixed in. A love in. Cuz that's all you need.
There would be one song where the Dad's are sitting in chairs, watching their son's, imagine the joking around John, Paul, George and Ringo can do during this. The finale is of course John, Paul, George breathtaking guitar solos with a surprising new material added to the classic Abbey Road ending.

Eddie,

In My Life. I forgot that one and that is my all time favorite Lennon song. I said I had brain freeze.

quite frankly...the would need to do one thing and one thing only: build the entire concert around a complete* run-through of the white album...and encore with 'abbey road' complete * they would, of course, have to drop 'revolution #9' out of its spot...too much for a concert setting, methinks...but utilize it as the intro/outro music
lift up your head...and remember what your life is !
