CHOKE! If I'm still around then, I'll be 61... well, better late than never, that's what they say, isn't it?
It's the start of a journey
To a much better place
And this wasn't bad
So a much better place
Would have to be special...

I mean, is Paul already sitting at the piano to go right into MMT....or does the band walk out? I'm wondering to get an idea, and also if that is when Paul's piano rises from the floor, (hence the drop in the "hole.")
I'm not sure how well I can answer this, Rambominable. :?

Paul plays bass on MMT, but I somehow didn't catch it that Paul's mic got hung up in the rising curtain---I was just stupified staring at him, lol (from the over-his-shoulder-seating-section)--- also the screen in our section didn't switch on right at the beginning either.

Also, he doesn't play piano until Fine Line, 'bout nine songs into it.

Ohhh ok, thanks Ding-a-zoom-zoom. I am surprised. I thought Paul played the "magic" piano on MMT like he did back in '93. I DID think it was odd that Paul would start the concert on piano. Thanks for the clarification!!

Also surprised that he plays bass on Flaming Pie. I thought for sure he would play that one on the pianer.

Wow. What a setlist! Really looking forward to Friday night at The Garden.

As for the heavy Beatles content, that's what most people want to hear, and The Beatles never got around to playing their very best stuff live.

Paul did his best work when he had two strong writers to compete with. He's written some very good stuff since then, and I'd like to hear "No More Lonely Nights" or "Take it Away" or various other solo things that I suppose he'll never play again, but to be honest, I'd rather hear "I Will" and "Helter Skelter."

I meant to make a note---at the concert I was checking out Paul's shoes, trying to determine if they were really Beatle boots, but couldn't exactly tell---

Then I read the Macca-Central article "McCartney, and his songs, make this tour magical" where it was mentioned that he was indeed wearing them, cool!

.....think I need to go out and get me a pair!, lol 8)

HUH?

On a piano, he turned out new goodies ''Jenny Wren'' WHAT?

Just typical, isn't it?
WAD, and it's that dadburn Morecambe & Wise School of Journalism--you know, they always called Ringo "Bongo." :lol:

Too bad people kept having their own talkshows in between the songs and in the acoustic section. (A woman is talking about her bloody wedding through Jenny Wren on my bootleg from Philly 23/9 :evil: )

I saw him the second performance. Loved the spark shower in "Follow Me" and the "Can I Have a Hug" thing. Please don't flame me if I said something wrong.

It happened again, this time in the new Rollingstone--'course we know they ain't been paying due attention for a number of decades, but I digress---Paul is talking, page 56:

"So you get a song of mine like "Monkberry Moon Delight" [from McCartney], which is..."

...from McCartney? Right, Big Bad RS. :x

(Then again, I know the Beatles didn't always know what song was on which album, but there's no excuse for fans, lol....certainly NOT the 'stone {read with a sneer.... :puker})

At least they put in a picture of those Sgt. Pepper kids in Philly....
