Something  was dedicated to George, @sigh butterfly.

He spoke about George’s love of ukulele, and how the one he was playing was a present from George, etc. Had the crowd give out a big Glastonbury roar for George.

I watched his set on TV with my family who are also huge fans. He did an excellent show. Paul also had great guests on and I loved Dave’s Abba shirt.

ahdn_paul_06Thanks Ron, I’m happy to hear that. If there is no objection I’m going to edit my post.

As a way of apology, last night I watched Paul perform at the Concert For George. I assume this was his first time playing Something , which I totally love heart.

Missed my favorite repeating story regarding Duff and the In Spite Of All The Danger 5 pound demo.

 

In Spite Of All The Danger was played, but for some reason it was originally omitted from the broadcast. It’s there in the BBC iPlayer recording (before Love Me Do ) including the story about Duff.

I think the concert as a whole was an amazingly strong performance from Paul and everyone else involved. I enjoyed the virtual duet with John, the guest contributions from Dave and Bruce, and the choice of songs throughout.

Thank you very much, Paul – if you ever read this! ahdn_paul_06

Paul’s vocal on ‘IGAF’ is pretty awful.

I’m also of the opinion that John would not have been in favour of footage of him being used for Paul to duet with in concert.

  

Probably. If Paul really wanted to do a reunion of sorts I guess this was still the most tasteful option.

Urgh, that’s annoying. I was frustrated when I realised it was being broadcast on a delay, this kind of edit was exactly what I didn’t want.

Now I’m going to be bothered all day by why they cut it, and trying to get access to watch it.

 Anyway, it was a great show. I think my favourite part was the chaotic guitar battle in The End .

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

It’s good that In Spite Of All The Danger is in the iPlayer edit, but could have been in the original broadcast.

Honestly, I feel a little bad I didn’t enjoy it as much as some of you. Looking at the first half of the set list that sigh butterfly posted and I missed (I tuned in from Mr. Kite onwards) I wouldn’t have minded hearing some of those songs, so I’ll try seek them out.

I know what you mean @meaigs, there are so many differences between what I listened to and the actual show that now I’m doubting I heard anything live. I have already watched two entire shows on the tour (one live) so I’m not too bummed. It was fun hanging out online with lots of fab forum folks and others on Twitter. I am going to take Richard’s word on this and add In Spite Of All The Danger to the list in its usual spot. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

Paul McCartney’s Glastonbury show hailed as ‘phenomenal’:

“It exceeded all expectations,” beamed Richard Martin, 75, part of the biggest crowd the Pyramid stage had ever seen.

“He was brilliant. Of course he’s a pro – he’s been at it for half a century. People behind us were in their 20s and they knew the songs backwards – that’s terrific testimony to the durability of the songs.”

The Guardian’s Alexis Petridis said McCartney’s biggest hits were “about as thrilling as pop music gets”, while the Independent described it as “far and away the best this writer has seen on the Pyramid stage in 30 years of Glastonburies.”

The Sunday Telegraph hailed it as “one of the most thrilling, uplifting, banger-filled, star-studded sets this 50-plus-year-old festival had ever seen.”

“It was incredible. Musically it was up there with one of the most seminal moments of my life,” said James Jack, 35

“It was phenomenal,” said 25-year-old Sorcha Ingram.

“He’s a proper legend,” said Keith Burnet, 59. “He actually did a really good gig that covered his whole career at his own time and pace.”

100,000 counts as the capacity crowd at the Pyramid Stage in Glastonbury, but an estimated 120,000 crammed in to watch Sir Paul McCartney on Saturday night. Stella McCartney wrote on Instagram:

Dad… You made history… the largest crowd ever at Glasto. I am so proud to be your baby xx epic epic epic

Thanks @Richard! My “misunderstandings” are especially funny because I thought I was communicating with 2 different people at the concert. Now I think I was being spoofeda-hard-days-night-ringo-14.

It seems that way unfortunately.

Hopefully, the full concert will be made available on YouTube eventually.

I watched the whole concert on BBC i-player last night … only intended watching maybe the first hour … and was mesmerized from start to finish! What a brilliant show,  with a wonderful set list (not a singalong greatest hits the whole way), including one or two songs I was unfamiliar with.

At/after ‘The End ‘, I texted my brother, a McCartney fan asking if I could be a Paul fan too now! 🙂 (traditionally, he is a Paul fan and I’m a John fan)

BBC viewing figures are in for Glastonbury.

Paul’s set had an average of 2.8 million watching, with a peak of 3.9 million. Diana Ross’s set beat him on the average, getting 3.1 million, but with a lower peak, at 3.8 million. One reason why Paul’s set had a lower average may have been that it was broadcast between 10:30pm through to nearly 1am, while Diana’s set went out early evening. Plus Paul’s average was across 2 hours 40-ish minutes (In Spite Of All The Danger  wasn’t broadcast), while Diana’s was an hour set.

It’ll be interesting to see the iPlayer views after they’ve had their 30 days availability. Many may have dropped out of Paul’s set because of the lateness of its broadcast, with people knowing they could catch the rest on iPlayer later.

I noticed at Glastonbury a few times Paul turned his guitar/bass to face skywards i.e frets facing up. Perhaps I haven’t been paying attention but I’d never seen him or any other guitarist do this before. A few times he did it mid song just before playing an intricate bass riff so I guess he was checking where on the fret board his fingers were. 

It’s odd because there are usually markers on the side of the guitar neck which tell you which fret you’re at and seems strange for someone with Paul’s skill and experience. Anyone notice this or have any theories?

I cant watch the concert in Germany. Is there any chance one of you can provide it?

BTW: I was hoping Paul would continue his Got Back Tour into Europe. Is there any info on that? I really would pay good money to see him in Germany.
