Good Evening Europe: Berlin :: Dec 3 2009 - Report with slideshow

Bob Gannon reports again from Berlin, the 2nd night of Macca's Good Evening Europe Tour. He discusses the VIP reception, soundcheck and the gig quite objectively. Bob has taken some great pictures he shared with us and I've put them into a slideshow.

Report by: Bob Ganon

Took the German ice Train to Berlin to catch the 2nd night of the tour. VIP Packages were told to arrive at 5:30pm but for some reason the arena did not let us in until after 6:15pm. We were then brought up to the O2 World Restaurant. The food was fantastic and while we ate, we could hear sound check going on. We may have missed a song or two but here what we did hear.
 
Sound check Berlin:
01. All My Loving
02. Coming Up
03. C Moon
04. I Want To Vome Home
05. Celebration
06. I've Just Seen a Face
07. San Francisco Bay Blues
08. I Don't Know?  (started out kind of sounding like a Gregorian chant but then it kept changing speeds and inflection to where it may have been something used as vocal warm up. Only words recognizable were I Don't Know)
09. Dance Tonight
10. Leaning on a Lamp Post/ Something medley
11. Calico Skies
12. Yesterday
 
We were led back down to our seats around 8:30pm. The crowd was much more into it than the Hamburg crowd was the night before. Although Paul & Band performed a scorching and flawless set in Hamburg, a lot of the crowd never got on their feet. A lot of sitters in Hamburg. Berlin was much different in that aspect,  a real good portion of the arena was standing. The short turn around and Paul's long day meeting the EU in Brussels played havoc with his voice a little. His voice cracked numerous times and he forgot the lyrics to several songs. While playing  "Blackbird" he added an extra note on his guitar. The concert was still very fun but it didn't seem like he was on his "A" game tonight. But the crowd was so into the show, it definitely kept this night's show lively. He was a little less interactive with the crowd tonight as well. Towards the end of the show, I saw what looked to be James McCartney come from back stage with an MPL employee and taken to a reserved seat on the floor.. Once again the two added songs sounded fantastic! The set list was he same from the night before.
