Just about all of them!

I'd keep
Juniors Farm
1985
Ms. Vandebilt
Come And Get It
Day Tripper
I'm Down

The rest needs to be totally replaced with songs he's never performed live before!!

That's why he's ALWAYS going to play Hey Jude, Yesterday, and a few other "War Horses" as some fans call them. He said he would be disappointed if he went to see the Rolling Stones and they didn't play Satisfaction or Jumpin' Jack Flash. I think that's reasonable.


Disagree. The real fans are ones that would care to hear a more varied set-list.
The posers or complete noobs are the ones who tend toward wanting to hear the all-too-familiarities live...

If I saw the Stones, I would not be disappointed to not be hearing the Satifactions/etc's...
And if I saw McCartney, I'd not be disappointed not hearing Hey Jude's/Beatles songs/etc's.

Make it fresh and I won't be disappoint.

All My Loving
Jet
Drive My Car
Let Me Roll It

i've got a feeling
a day in the life
give peace a chance
let it be
live and let die
hey jude
wonderful christmastime
day tripper
get back
yesterday
helter skelter
golden slumbers
carry that weight
the end.

so yeah, pretty much his WHOLE set list usually
can be axed. it's been done to death at this point.

play something for your actual fans, and maybe they'll turn-up
more often to your gigs. keep playing the same crap you've palyed
for 30+ years, and you'll get the people who only see you
as a Beatle, nothing more.

around 2 songs from each wings/solo.
make around 33-36 songs.

end with hands of love/powercut.

Macca needs to show some true bravado and add the following to his setlist

Coming Up
Temporary Secretary
On the Way
Bogey Music
Waterfalls ( an umptempo version a la Sloan)
and of course, Magneto & Titanium Man
" without Bogey Music, Life is incomplete."
