OK - here's the set-up.

 

The Beatles come back for a reunion concert (let's say it's pre-December 1980) - give us your dream set - say up to 20 songs - no solo numbers - only Beatle songs.

It's a toughie!

I want all of Sgt. Pepper. Mostly because they used it as an example of why they couldn't tour anymore. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

You know it's true. They used the examples of Revolver and Sgt. Pepper being too elaborate as reasons why they couldn't tour, but I'm sure they had some of the technology available before 1980 to recreate some of that. I have a feeling that today, (OK, not 30 years ago, but today) someone could do an amazing job of recreating Tomorrow Never Knows almost to the note live.

I'm not sure of an exact set list, but I can't see them in the scenario you've given as performing anything before Rubber Soul.

You'd think with the sheer number of us wanting to build a time machine for the same purpose, we would eventually be able to work something out to create one, huh? a-hard-days-night-george-10

Hi all,

 

Pepper being too elaborate as reasons why they couldn't tour, but I'm
sure they had some of the technology available before 1980 to recreate
some of that. I have a feeling that today.

Good and interesting stuff - I'm noticing there's really none of the old stuff - but is it impossible to think that in an atmosphere of reunion and reliving the old days etc, they would rediscover an affection for the early work. Look at how Paul does more and more old stuff.

 

So who's willing to throw down that you might hear

 

A Hard Day's Night

Ask My Why

Help

Nowwhere Man

She Loves You

 

Remember even John did I Saw Her Standing There with Elton!

If I had had a beverage in my mouth when I read that, I would have Zigged. And you would have owed me a new keyboard. 

 

As for my concert...

Let's see...

"I Saw Her Standing There." 

Everything from 1966.

Abbey Road medley.

"A Day In The Life." 

 

Now, as the chord is fading out, the Beatles walk off the stage. (There are weights on the piano keys, OK?) Everyone is talking about what a great concert that was, and they're complaining about the fact that it's over, but what a great closer, right? 

And then... 

 

 

"I'm Down." 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Oh yes. "Paperback Writer," "Rain," and all of Revolver! I would be levitating. a-hard-days-night-george-10

 

I'm kind of disappointed at how George-lacking my setlist is. Only three songs, as compared to 13 Paul, 9 John, and one Ringo song! At least John gets 9 songs.... a-hard-days-night-george-10
