Sir Paul McCartney’s On The Run tour moved to Italy, with a concert at the Unipol Arena in Bologna.
It was his first concert since he performed at the Yas Arena in Abu Dhabi on 13 November 2011, as part of the Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend.
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).
The setlist had some surprises. The Wings song Let ‘Em In was dropped, and in its place was added the Badfinger song Come And Get It, which McCartney wrote in 1968.
More surprising was the first encore, a medley of The Word and All You Need Is Love, with a brief snippet of She Loves You at the end. McCartney has never before performed the medley in public. Watch it here:
