What setlists do you think The Beatles would've played if they kept on touring after the 1966 US tour

Actually, there are quite a few Revolver songs that could've been played live with little to no changing, those songs are:

Taxman (you'd have to find a way to work around the fact that George can't play the guitar solo though)

I'm Only Sleeping (without reversed guitar)

Here, There, And Everywhere

Yellow Submarine

She Said, She Said

And Your Bird Can Sing (in place of a bass part, you'd have to have Paul play guitar live)

Doctor Robert

I Want To Tell You

Got To Get You Into My Life (without brass)

And even some from the Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour , and Yellow Submarine era that could be played live with little to no changing:

Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band (no french horns)

With A Little Help From My Friends

Getting Better (no piano or tamboura)

Fixing A Hole

Lovely Rita

Good Morning, Good Morning (place John on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Paul on bass and backing vocals, George on tambourine and backing vocals and guitar solo, and Ringo on drums, no brass or sound effects and the solo would have to be altered for George's playing style)

Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)

Flying

I Am The Walrus (no orchestra or radio shows)

Hello, Goodbye (no violas)

All You Need Is Love

All Together Now

Hey Bulldog

Lady Madonna (no saxophone)

The And Your Bird Can Sing guitar part would be really easy to play with that level of audience energy and noise.

Good point, with all of that energy and noise, no one would notice any mistakes and even if they did, they wouldn't care because it's The Beatles dammit. They could've just stood on stage and talked about what they had for breakfast for 2 hours and those girls would've screamed until their throats bled.

Proving why a lot of those songs would be too mellow for girls like that. A lot of post-Revolver Beatles songs desire a more intimate setting than what existed at the time, showing evidently when they desperately try to harmonize in Nowhere Man with a thousand screaming girls. I would love to see a lot of the songs on your list live, but songs like Flying would be impossible. That's one reason they were so great to produce it from the studio

I think just about every song sounds better in the studio than live. Sure, there's great live albums out there like Live Killers and KISS Alive but you have much more control in the studio and are able to do a better job, there's no retakes or overdubs in a concert.

I should've said very rarely but then again that was for MTV unplugged, a TV show, not a regular concert, they also did retakes on the rooftop as well and some live albums contain overdubs, although it's impossible to do an overdub DURING a live performance.

In all seriousness, what they should have done was play Sgt Pepper in full (hiring an orchestra, keyboardist, extra guitarists etc) in the Royal Albert Hall and televise it on the day of it's release. Imagine the ridiculous levels of brilliance there would have been.

Why would John use his Gretsch, wouldn't it make more sense for him to use his Epiphone Casino.

He used it on Paperback Writer and I like that style so I figure he could use it.

It's January 1969 and Paul McCartney has somehow managed to persuade his three bandmates that it would be a good idea to tour again. After briefly contemplating going 'up on the roof', they agree to appear at the Saville Row Theatre for one night only. The White Album is still (probably) riding high in the charts, and despite abandoning their latest project, they are still keen to explore Paul's suggestion. Tickets for their first live performance in nearly three years have been snapped up by the hip and the wealthy, alike. They take to the stage to a deafening applause. They are joined on stage by their friend Billy Preston on keys. As ever, Paul counts them in to their first song with a swift 'one, two, three, four!'

This is the night's fourteen-song setlist:

Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band The band's rendition is no doubt inspired by Jimi Hendrix's stripped-back version of the same song, performed at the same venue in 1967.

Lennon: Harmony vocal, guitar (i.e. the bits George plays on the song)

McCartney: Lead vocals, bass guitar

Harrison: Harmony vocals, lead guitar (with his own version of Paul's solo)

Starr: Drums

With A Little Help From My Friends

Lennon: Rhythm Guitar (replacing studio piano), backing vocals

McCartney: Bass, backing vocals

Harrison: Lead Guitar, backing vocals

Starr: Lead vocals, drums.

Day Tripper

Lennon: Lead vocals, rhythm/lead guitar

McCartney: Harmony vocals, bass

Harrison: Lead Guitar

Starr: Drums

Get Back As it's soon to be their single in the next few months, this song is almost guaranteed to have been played live

Lennon: Lead guitar

McCartney: Lead vocals, bass

Harrison: Rhythm guitar

Starr: Drums

Billy Preston: Electric Piano

Strawberry Fields Forever  The live version is particularly evocative of the first half of the official release

Lennon: Lead vocals, acoustic guitar

McCartney: Bass

Harrison: Electric slide guitar

Starr: Drums

Billy Preston: Mellatron

A Hard Day's Night

Lennon: Lead vocals, rhythm guitar

McCartney: Vocals, bass

Harrison: Lead guitar

Starr: Drum

Twist & Shout/From Me To You /She Loves You /I Want To Hold Your Hand (Medley) A Hard Day's Night and the Medley bring particular joy to the crowd

Lennon: Vocals, rhythm guitar

McCartney: Vocals, bass

Harrison: Lead guitar, backing vocals

Starr: Drums

*Break*

Taxman

Lennon: Bass, backing vocals

McCartney: Lead guitar (playing his first live solo since 1957), backing vocals

Harrison: Lead vocals, lead guitar

Starr: Drums

Helter Skelter  The live version stretches on for over ten minutes.

Lennon: Lead guitar

McCartney: Lead vocals, bass

Harrison: Rhythm guitar

Starr: Drums

Don't Let Me Down  

Lennon: Lead vocals, rhythm guitar

McCartney: Harmony vocal, bass

Harrison: Lead guitar

Starr: Drums

Yesterday  For Paul McCartney of Liverpool, England, Opportuntity [still] knocks...

Lennon: [Off Stage]

McCartney: Vocals, acoustic guitar

Harrison: [Off stage]

Starr: [Off stage]

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Lennon: Acoustic rhythm guitar

McCartney: Bass

Harrison: Lead vocals, lead guitar (playing his own solo instead of Clapton's)

Starr: Drums

Revolution

Lennon: Vocals, guitar

McCartney: Backing vocals, bass

Harrison: Backing vocals, guitar

Starr: Drums

Hey Jude McCartney already knows its a show-closer.

Lennon: Rhythm guitar, backing vocals

McCartney: Lead vocals, piano

Harrison: Bass guitar, backing vocals

Starr: Drums, tambourine, backing vocals

 

Instruments Used:

Lennon: Epiphone Casino, Fender Jazz Bass (for Taxman ), Martin D-28 (for While My Guitar Gently Weeps )

McCartney, Hofner 500/1, Epiphone Casino (for Taxman ), Martin D-28 (for Yesterday )

Harrison: Gibson Les Paul, Fender Telecaster, Fender Jazz Bass (for Hey Jude )

Starr: Ludwig Drums

Great setlist but i would put Please Please Me in place of Twist And Shout since that it would make it their 4 1963 UK singles.
