Paul McCartney finished his somewhat unofficial “Good Evening” concert tours a couple of months ago, but his fans have spent that time speculating about what songs he would perform for his next concert tour. Last night, the rumors were put to a rest as the first night of the “Up and Coming” tour went underway at Phoenix, Arizona’s Jobing arena.
Thirty-six songs were performed, ranging from the Beatles’1963 hit “All My Loving” to last year’s Emmy nominated “(I Want To) Come Home”. Though most of set list was identical to that of the previous tour, some of his newer solo tunes, like “Only Mama Knows” and ”Flaming Pie” got cut along with some Beatles classics, like “Drive My Car” and “I Saw Her Standing There”. Those songs were replaced by well-loved Wings gems like “Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five” and “Venus and Mars/Rockshow”.
