I have begun uploading the hour of video I filmed at the Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville. This July 26th 2010 concert was the very first time Paul McCartney EVER performed in Nashville (as a Beatle, in Wings, solo — ever!), so it was quite funny when he said “Hello Nashville! It’s good to be back!”
He opened the show with “Venus and Mars” > “RockShow” > “Jet”. Although this version of RockShow is extrememly abridged, it was still the first time he performed it live since the 1976 “Wings Over America” tour. Pretty amazing.
The second (well, I guess technically it’s the fourth song) of the evening was The Beatles classic “All My Loving”
He then rocked it out with another song from the 1975 Wings album “Venus & Mars” — “Letting Go”
Back to the Beatles cannon — “Got To Get You Into My Life” from the 1966 album “Revolver.”
And now he’d like to do a song by his alter-ego… called The Firemen. The song is “Highway” from the album “Electric Arguments.” This tour is interesting because he is not actively promoting a new record. His last tour was to promote this album and “Memory Almost Full.” So for that reason, there were only 4 post-Wings songs played! Although, I enjoy seeing and hearing the new stuff, knowing that most of it will never be played live again, it was fun to get a healthier dose of classics this time around. (I also saw him in ’89 in Miami and ’93 in Orlando where he was promoting “Flowers In The Dirt” and “Off The Ground” respectively.)
