So, out of pure luck and circumstance, we saw Paul McCartney perform live in Brooklyn, NY…!!!
By pure chance, in the small window of time we spent in New York City for our honeymoon in June, it so happened that Paul was performing on his “Out There!” World Tour. So, as if our honeymoon in New York and Hawaii was not going to be memorable enough, we saw a Beatle perform some of his best compositions in a 3 hour set, including 2 encores.

The set list performed was as follows:

  1. Eight Days a Week (Beatles song)
  2. Junior’s Farm (Wings song)
  3. All My Loving (Beatles song)
  4. Listen to What the Man Said (Wings song)
  5. Let Me Roll It (Wings song) (“Foxy Lady” snippet)
  6. Paperback Writer (Beatles song)
  7. My Valentine Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five (Wings song)
  8. The Long and Winding Road (Beatles song)
  9. Maybe I’m Amazed
  10. I’ve Just Seen a Face (Beatles song)
  11. We Can Work It Out (Beatles song)
  12. Another Day
  13. And I Love Her (Beatles song)
  14. Blackbird (Beatles song)
  15. Here Today
  16. Your Mother Should Know (Beatles song)
  17. Lady Madonna (Beatles song)
  18. All Together Now (Beatles song)
  19. Lovely Rita (Beatles song)
  20. Mrs. Vandebilt (Wings song)
  21. Eleanor Rigby (Beatles song)
  22. Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite! (Beatles song)
  23. Something (Beatles song)
  24. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (Beatles song)
  25. Band on the Run (Wings song)
  26. Back in the U.S.S.R. (Beatles song)
  27. Let It Be (Beatles song)
  28. Live and Let Die (Wings song)
  29. Hey Jude (Beatles song)
    Encore 1:
  30. Day Tripper (The Beatles song)
  31. Hi, Hi, Hi (Wings song)
  32. Get Back (The Beatles song)
    Encore 2:
  33. Yesterday (The Beatles song)
  34. Helter Skelter (The Beatles song)
  35. Golden Slumbers (The Beatles song)
  36. Carry That Weight (The Beatles song)
  37. The End (The Beatles song)

Not only did Paul not break a sweat, he was flawless… not a single note played incorrectly or sang flat or sharp. Paul was faultless and pitch perfect. All of this was only a few days before his 70th birthday, so performing in front of large audiences is clearly in his veins.
This was an event that will remain with me for the rest of my days.
