Well I had the pleasure, honor, and the greatest night of my life this past Saturday, May 18th in Orlando watching Macca live for the very 1st time. I have every release from Please Please Me to KOTB, except the 1st two Fireman, and the classical stuff. I was always one who would support a setlist that included mostly solo or Wings stuff, and very little Beatles. That all changed on Saturday. When he is up there all alone doing Yesterday, it was truly a religious experience for me. I've said for a while if I heard Hey Jude one more time, I'd gag. Well, when you're there live you can't wait for it, and when the whole arena joins in, it is awe inspiring. He did a really nice job on Hope of Deliverance, but at the end it was a smattering of applasue, but nothing like the ovations when he was Beatle Paul. That's just the way it is folks. Paul hears this, wants his shows to be high energy, and the crowd to be totally into it, and the way to do that is by playing Beatle tunes. Anyone clamoring for obscure tracks like Angry, or the Mess can just forget it Ain't gonna happen.
Was never a fan of Eight Days a Week, and was hoping for Venuis & Mars to open, but it was absolutely stunning to hear it live with Paul, and his band.
