    That's an incredible setlist! Many artists much younger than Sir Paul could learn a thing or two ..
    What a fantastic setlist! I would love to see him live. Was anybody else thrown off that the list went from 33 to 24?
    Holy crap I wish I'd seen that set.
    I was there. 'Your mother should know' caught me by surprise. Afterwards I was thinking "do these people have any idea?!?". And they really didn't. They kept saying how great Hey jude was and I was like WTF!!! haha
    I really hope he pulls some of these out at Bonnaroo next month. I'll be right in front screaming the lyrics to Helter Skelter.
    That is one of the best setlists I have ever seen!!! I have to try and make one of these shows.
