Well Wrestlemania is starting at 7 P.M. EST Time I don't what time that would be in Arizona, like what 5? Then Paul won't come on the stage until probably 9 that night, Wrestlemania will be a 4 hour event. I wonder if the bookers even took that into consideration, seeing that Wrestlemania has been booked there for at least a year now.

On a separate issue I think he needs to drop Hey Jude and perhaps some of the other Beatles stuff he's been playing for years. Eleanor Rigby sounds horrible on synth. It's been the same thing now for years. The pyrotechnics as well for Live and Let Die he's been doing since the 70's. I would like him to actually have a proper string and brass section - Van Morrison did it in the 70's why not Macca. I know he has to play a certain amount of favourites for the paying audience.

Some songs I'd like on this tour (I know he may have done some of these over the last 15 yrs or so - I admit I don't know Macca's set lists). Randomly off the top of my head:

Too Many People
Heart of the Country
Back Seat of My Car
Helen Wheels
Listen To What The Man Said
Arrow Through Me
Tug Of War
Ballroom Dancing
Through Our Love
The World Tonight
Friends To Go


etc etc etc

Missing out loads - my memory is terrible. To finish he should be controversial and play Give Ireland Back To The Irish

But if this is a US Tour then why would he be in Glasgow so quick?

Bet he hits no where near WV, Not OH, KY, VA. Might hit TN.

Who knows?

This "tour" looks so scattered it's not even funny...

Sure I'd like a new album. Sure I'd love to hear some of his great catalogue that we don't get to hear. But you know what. This is the man we love singing the songs we love and thats good enough for me. If he plays anywhere close enough, I will go.

I live in Arizona 7 minutes away from Jobing.com arena, so I can tell you first hand it's going to be pretty crowded :cry:
They are right across the street from each other basically, with Wrestlemania starting an hour before Macca. The good news is it's in Glendale, meaning suburbs. Bad news is there isn't many buses or taxi's or really any form of transportation out here if that is what you are depending upon. You'll have to rent a car or something...I'm just giving fair warning for anyone coming here for Paulie.
The sad thing is I don't think many people are coming to see Paul in AZ :sad:
Or maybe I should think of that as a good thing...but still, kind of depressing in a way.

If anyone is coming here and wants to ask me a Q, I don't mind-I know you'd do the same for me. McCartney unites us!! LOL ^:)^ :lol:
