Paul McCartney live: Bell Centre, Montreal, Canada

Sir Paul McCartney performed the second of two concerts at Montreal’s Bell Centre.

McCartney’s band was Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens (vocals, keyboards, guitar, percussion, harmonica), Brian Ray (vocals, guitar, bass), Rusty Anderson (vocals, guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (vocals, drums).

As is traditional, McCartney responded to a handful of the many signs held up by fans. One woman celebrating her 50th birthday asked him to sign her Sgt Pepper costume. Another sign was held by a pregnant woman and said: “Your smallest fan is in my belly. Sign it and we’ll call him Paul.”

The setlist was largely the same as the previous night’s, though there were some changes. He began with ‘Magical Mystery Tour’, substituted ‘Birthday’ with ‘Got To Get You Into My Life’, played ‘Things We Said Today’ instead of ‘I’m Looking Through You’, and added ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ to the first encore section.

Here’s the full setlist:
