Requests for Paul
On Twitter and Facebook and probably some other SoMe channels that we aren’t subscribed to, Paul McCartney has been encouraging fans to write in with requests for songs they want him to perform on the upcoming tour. What would you like to see on the setlist? He posted this on Facebook 15 hours ago, and so far 3 000 have responded. But as Mike Carrera put it in his reply: “I love you man, I really do, but let’s face it, you’re going to play the same songs YOU want to play, pretty much similar to the Freshen Up Tour, but at least PLEASE, add ‘Silly Love Songs’ and take advantage of your brass section now.” Of course, that latter part is what we have been hoping for as well, we really enjoyed it when the horns came alive again. And with Paul’s budget, he could hire a string quartet as well, to augment the live versions of his songs.
As for us, we just wrote: “Wings songs from the later albums, London Town and Back to the egg.”
What would you like him to play?
The “Paul McCartney Got Back” tour opens Thursday 28 April in Spokane. We’ll share the set list here after the show.
