Paul McCartney live: Ahoy, Rotterdam, Netherlands

Sir Paul McCartney kicked off the 2012 leg of his On The Run tour with a three-hour concert at the Ahoy in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

It was McCartney’s first show in Holland since 2009, when he played there during his Good Evening Europe Tour. He has played the Netherlands a total of 12 times since his debut there in 1972.

There were some new additions to the setlist. Venus And Mars/Rock Show were brought back in, possibly ahead of a reissue of that album. The Kisses On The Bottom song ‘My Valentine’ was performed.

In response to a call from the crowd asking “What about Ringo?”, a few lines from The Beatles’ ‘Yellow Submarine’ were sung before ‘Band On The Run’.

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).
