I'm glad the show was hot, Wings. And yes, the band rocks. Personally, I think Abe Laoboriel, Jnr. is Macca's best drummer yet. I know I might take some flack for saying that, but that's just my opinion. Can't wait until DC! One week and 5 days to go!! :)

Ha ha, hang in there shorty. I know how you feel. The night before my show, I'll probably be having palpitations.

Hey shorty, Make sure and tell us how it goes, even though we all know it will be awesome.

Chicago peoples,
Please tell us if he deviates from the set list - I have a feeling he should open with "I've got a feeling" and then go straight into "Mumbo" to test his Rock n Roll pipes.

Seriously, if he does any different songs, let us know

No deviation from the Oakland set...Same old songs. It was amazing, though!!! His band that he has is great and the drummer who hits the high harmonies is incredible too. The band's voices blend very well together, much better than on Paul's other tours. He still does the bit during "You Never Give Me Your Money" about forgetting the lyrics. Something to the effect of "I still havn't learned the words to the song, but maybe I'll remember them by the end of the tour..." And does anyone else know what was up with pre-show bit with the costumes...very interesting and a stellar entrance. No mistakes that I could pick up...(wrong notes, flat voices...) Wonder when the live CD comes out!

Yes the chicago set list was the same on the 11th.Would have liked to hear some Flaming Pie stuff. But the band plays and sings great.I read a chicago paper review that said the last time Paul played with a band this good it was on a roof top in london 1969. I love the video monitors. Great addition but dose not take away from the music.
I was also told that the pre-show music is from the Fireman. Anyone else hear that?

Don't read on if you want to be surpised by some things in the show. Now I hate to say it but the forgetting the words stuff is mostly scripted. He's said the same thing in other cities. The same goes for the exposions in Live and Let Die, they make it seem that the last explosion at the end was unexpected and Abe falls over his drum kit and Paul slips on the stage, acts very scared and suprised beating his heart. It's a good act and it's part of the show. It always works :)
