What are the chances of Paul making changes to his set list for this tour, do you think?

This is a consistent topic at Macca's official board.

I think more serious Paul fans would like him to mix things up (and I'm in agreement), but who are the majority of his concert-goers? Are they just casual Beatles fans? I swear to God I've read complaints from "fans" on the Internet who b**** and moan about Paul playing too many songs they don't recognize (Wings/solo), so they get bored. I think these people tend to get the most excited when they hear old classics they do know.

^^I noticed that on that board, it seems the concert section is dedicated to it! While hardcore Macca fans would probably like to see him change up the setlist, I think he's making the right decision by keeping it the same mostly.

Since Macca is playing the Hollywood Bowl, I am expecting him to do the Venus & Mars/Rockshow/Jet as an opener.

"Rock and roll at the Hollywood Bowl!"

I wouldn't count on it....BUT I would love it if he did that song!

Argh, 19 more days to wait. :P

Yeah, most of the fans at his concerts are casual Beatle fans who only go to hear the Beatle songs mainly. It's bull. 60%ish of his setlist are Beatle songs. He seriously needs to mix it up and play more Wings and solo stuff. He has such a vast catalog of songs that it's just sad that he sticks to the same stuff every time. It is boring and it's old. That said, I'd still see him in concert.

I've seen a couple of post where people are saying he will perform Rockshow at the Hollywood bowl, anyone heard or seen anything about this?

I sort of sense and have a bad feeling about why the he has stuck to certain songs over the years when the he will not play songs from 66 and earlier.

Just a gut feeling and I do believe I know the answer and not mention why.

Do you really have to bring up the Paul is Dead stuff here as well? And like Tamara said.. "Yesterday", "I Saw Her Standing There", "I'll Follow The Sun", "Drive My Car", "I Wanna Be Your Man", "I've Just Seen A Face", "Can't Buy Me Love", etc.

All pre 66 songs I've seen footage of him perform within the last ten or so years.

THANK YOU to you and Tamara for being sane voices of reason.

During the Wings 1975-1976 tour he performed Yesterday & I've Just Seen A Face, which were from 1965.

I bet he's going for the theory of 'it ain't broke, don't fix it'

Not sure if this has been posted already (there are so many rumors I can't keep 'em straight), but the Paul McCartney Examiner says Macca might do Pittsburgh.

^^I will be so unhappy if he goes there and not New York, Philly, or DC. The way Pennsylvania is shaped, Pittsburgh is 7 hours away from me, and just too far :( Philly and DC are about 2-3 hours away, and New York's not so far by train. But if he comes just THAT close but not close enough, I'm going to....

Early reports from McCartney's opening gig in Phoenix tonight's indicates that he has made drastic changes to his set list thank god. Opening song was Venus & Mars. Another new song is 1985. More soon.

AHHH! Spoiler!!! But I LOVE the idea of V&M (Rockshow also?)...totally appropriate for the Hollywood Bowl. 1985 is excellent too. ;D
