Just rolled into work, busy day ahead, and I'm exhausted! I'm still on a euphoric high after last night! I'll write up a proper review later this week but for now, first here was last night's set:

Eight Days A Week

Junior's Farm

All My Loving

Listen to What the Man Said

Let Me Roll It/Foxy Lady

Paperback Writer

My Valentine

Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five

The Long And Winding Road

Maybe I'm Amazed

I've Just Seen A Face

We Can Work It Out

Another Day

And I Love Her

Blackbird

Here Today

Your Mother Should Know

Lady Madonna

All Together Now

Lovely Rita

Mrs. Vandebilt

Eleanor Rigby

Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!

Something

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

Band On The Run

Back in the U.S.S.R.

Let It Be

Live And Let Die

Hey Jude

 

Encore:

Day Tripper

Hi, Hi, Hi

I Saw Her Standing There

       

Encore 2:

Yesterday

Helter Skelter

Golden Slumbers

Carry That Weight

The End

   

Lots to write later, but off the top of my head:

-During Live And Let Die, there were huge bursts of flames and fireworks(!) that went off in the middle of the song and at the end...it was amazing! I posted a pic on my twitter (@blackbookblur) but it doesn't do it justice

-Not gonna lie, I cried several times, during Here Today, Something, Blackbird, and Hey Jude

-After the 4th song, he took his jacket off, rolled up his sleeves, and said "THAT is going to be the ONLY wardrobe change tonight!" It was all about the music.

-Paul alone onstage playing acoustic on Here Today, Blackbird, Yesterday was incredible...dead silent with 30,000 people quietly singing along while he played and sang them flawlessly

-He very simply said "I wrote this one for Linda" before starting Maybe I'm Amazed...again, I wept :lol:

-After the ~3rd or 4th song: "You guys are the new house record for Fenway Park!  *cheers from crowd* Know who we beat to set that record? *silence* OURSELVES!"

-Some person upfront held up a sign saying "I have my original 1966 Beatles tour banner" to which Paul said, "Sorry, that was before my time!"

-The massive crowd singalong during Hey Jude was simply amazing!

-Everyone was pogo jumping during the double-time end to Mrs. Vandebilt, including Paul!

-The 3-way guitar battle at the end of The End was fab

-"This one is for all the Wings fans" was how he introduced Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five...so good!

-He told a REALLY funny story about watching Hendrix in the late 1960s when Jimi good-naturedly ribbed Eric Clapton (who was also in the audience)

-Some of the footage/photos behind him during some songs were just brilliant. For example, the Beatles from the MMT film during Your Mother Should Know, pics of Paul and George together from throughout their lives during Something, pics of Paul and Michael with their mum and Linda with his girls/James during Your Mother Should Know, etc

-He played his original Beatles-era Hofner bass, Epiphone Casino, and Epiphone Texan acoustic (the one with the Detroit Red Wings sticker) for most of the songs. He also played his psychedelic painted upright piano that he wrote on in Cavendish Avenue during the 60s. (he also played his colorful Les Paul, a sunburst Les Paul, a Martin acoustic, and what looked like a Gibson 12-string acoustic)

-Paul's voice sounded UNBELIEVABLE!!! The man sings all of the songs in the original keys and STILL sounds flawless

-The band is INCREDIBLE...that's what playing together for over a decade will do

-At the very end of the show, massive confetti cannons shot out from in front of the stage. I managed to catch some, and even 30 minutes later outside Fenway Park, it was raining down on us!

I'm still grinning ear-to-ear...just unbelievable. Hard to fathom he just turned 71 (when I told my mum that after the show, she couldn't believe it, she still thought he was in his mid-60s! :lol: ). I'll write up an even more detailed review later but it was just the best. THE BEST!

 

He got rave reviews in the Boston papers, too:

Interesting:  from Dr. Beatles' song list, it looks like Paul only sang one Lennon-sung song -- "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite".  I wonder if that is a particular favorite of Paul's among John's repertoire?

 

Yeah, that was the only Lennon-sung song he did, and he also did Something (George, obviously). Although interestingly enough the PA music at the beginning before the show started consisted of remixes and covers of Paul, Wings, and Beatles songs as well as John's "Power To The People."

Seems plausible since the album SPLHCB is often in Paul's playlist, as well as other albums by the Beach Boys as I can recall.
