I'm always happy to replace videos if people point me in the direction of better-quality, full-length ones. Normally I do a quick trawl of YouTube when I publish the article and see what's around, though in the case of concerts people often take a few days or more to upload their footage.

Where in Wales are you? I'm in Cardiff. He played the Millennium Stadium last year – it was great.

EDIT - just saw in an another thread that you're from Swansea.

I was at the gig in Liverpool on 20th December (second time seeing Paul), and it was amazing!
My girlfriend and I stayed at the hotel right across from the arena and could see The Albert Dock, The Beatles Story and the Liver Building from our hotel window.
We had a few days in Liverpool before the gig as she'd never been there before so I took her to Matthew Street and The Beatles Story exhibition on the day of the gig.  I've since put  over 100 pictures of FB of our couple of days down there.

The set list for Liverpool was as follows:

Hello, Goodbye
Junior's Farm (for the first time in Liverpool)
All My Loving
Drive My Car
Sing the Changes
The Night Before (for the first time in Liverpool)
Let Me Roll It (with Foxy Lady Snippet)
Paperback Writer
The Long And Winding Road
Come And Get It (for the first time in Liverpool)
Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five
Maybe I'm Amazed
I've Just Seen A Face
I Will
Here Today
Dance Tonight
Mrs. Vandebilt
Eleanor Rigby
Ram On (for the first time in Liverpool)
Penny Lane
Band On The Run
Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
Back in the U.S.S.R.
I've Got A Feeling
A Day In The Life / Give Peace A Chance
Let It Be
Live And Let Die
Hey Jude

The Word / All You Need Is Love (for the first time in Liverpool for The Word)

Wonderful Christmastime (with a girls choir from LIPA)
Day Tripper
Get Back

I've been a Paul fan for as long as I can remember, but i've come across a few videos and I'm just curious to see if anyone else agrees with me that it doesn't look as if he's playing his instrument (bass)... This is not an attack on him at all, I'm actually here for clarification as Paul is one of my idols. 


For example, in this video, it doesn't seem as he's actually playing!



I'm not trying to start a war in anyway, I'm honestly wondering as to how he makes it look so effortless and yet, perfect. The strings don't seem to be moving at all (at least from this broadcast). Obviously, he's been playing most of his life, but it's just odd. Cheers!

Note by Ahhh Girl 28 May 2014: This post was the beginning of a new thread (question-about-pauls-recent-live-performances). The next two post were replies to the inquiry. Just a piece of information: The video in question is from 2010. Thanks for the help, @parlance

I don't understand what you're seeing. I see nothing in the video to suggest he is miming to a backing track or another musician on stage playing his part (and it would have to be one of the two as there is clearly bass on the performance).

Welcome to the forum.

He doesn't really start playing until just before the 2 minute mark, then you can see him start to play and hear the bass line kick in, he is hitting the top string and you can hear it very clearly. If you watch closely, you can see the strings move a little, and you can hear the bassline in different parts of the clip and 'see' that Paul is playing what you are 'hearing'. It doesn't look any different on this clip than it does on many others at least to me. He definitely looks like he is playing fwiw.

As to how he can play so effortlessly - well he has been playing for over 50 years now, I guess he has it down :) He is one of the most highly regarded bass guitar players in the world I believe, I'm no expert but they tell me he's pretty good and there are certainly some very cool Beatles basslines around :)

Here's a really cool video of Paul and the band rehearsing on the 19th May 2010 for the 'Up and Coming Tour'.
