McCartney NEVER does this?

There are two examples (of many, actually) where he sure DOES do this.

Never say never-of course Paul of and then changes arrangements but mostly -in all honesty-he does not. Paul is a great stage persona but actually mostly play it "safe" live, the same set lists over a tour, arrangements fairly close to recordings and similar routines. nothing wrong with that but Dylan for instance has changed his arrangements over three decades, changes set lists most every night and many frustrated concertgoers might not be sure what songs they are actually hearing.
Paul live is more of an entertainer than performing artist. For a short while -when Wings started it was different-he din t wanna play beatlsestuff and solo/wings stuff were spare. I witnessed them live during that period and it was awesome. Don t think Paul ever will change his patterns live apart from one of things

I agree whole heartedly with Mr. H. Again, I say, who will write MPL and make that suggestion?

Hmmmm. Yes he wants to play it safe but if he did only a handful of the ones he is doing now and then throw in different ones every 3 concerts, just think how exciting it would be for the audience and it would keep his band from getting too blasé about it.

But he won't and mores the pity.

Should he follow David Letterman's example and get off the big stage before his skills deteriorate any further?

Maybe Letterman should think about playing smaller venues...and do a local cable show.

One of the best moments for both of these guys was when Letterman had Paul on, then they played the top of the LATE NIGHT marquee, just north of Times Square. I lived in Manhattan for over 20 years, and they waited till after I left to do that?

Four US dates for the summer with more to come:

He's going to do the three-hour Beatle show till he physically can't do it anymore. And, you know what? I think that's what he should be doing. I'm fine with it now. I know he's never going to do Ram in a theatre or something like that. If his goal is to keep playing so people can see a Beatle sing all those great songs, that's fine with me.

The bottom line is that Macca is going to do whatever the hell he wants. I get that. The down side is that his voice is getting worse with the strain and will continue to do so. At his age I don't know how much rejuvenation can even take place. I'd much rather have fresh music while he still can. How many more new CD's does he have left? The touring schedule he's had is for a much younger man but I give him the credit for having the energy to do this. I just prefer the creative side of making new music. I've enjoyed most of NEW as well as has most of you. I guess maybe I'm being selfish for wanting more but the shelf life for doing this is limited. This is the stark reality of the the question asked. Blast away!
