Paul McCartney live: Manchester Evening News Arena, Manchester

Sir Paul McCartney performed at the Manchester Evening News Arena, in the penultimate show of his On The Run tour.

It was McCartney’s first show in Manchester since the 2003 Back In The World tour, which stopped twice at the MEN Arena.

The setlist was largely the same as his 14 December concert in Moscow, Russia, aside from the inclusion of ‘Got To Get You Into My Life’ instead of ‘Drive My Car’, ‘I’m Looking Through You’ instead of ‘I’ve Just Seen A Face’, and ‘And I Love Her’ in place of ‘I Will’.

He also added the 1979 festive song ‘Wonderful Christmastime’ to the first encore section, accompanied with a choir and a backdrop of giant snowflakes.

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).
