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

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.
