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.
