          unless ACL is not apart of the new tour

            So do you think we'll get new songs in the setlist for this tour (excluding a song or two from Egypt Station)? Or he'll continue the play the same songs he played on the One On One Tour?

              I sure am hoping with a name like Freshen Up!!  Montreal will be my 135th Macca show so I'm down with complete overhaul or as many new ones as possible

                The same core set probably but with a new Beatles/Solo opener, a different middle section (I rather enjoyed the band coming forward in front of the screen on the last tour) but probably no real changes to the latter half of the show.

                  His last few tours have changed about 10 songs or so. Doesn’t mean they are brand new or deep cuts, but if you attended One on One you should have about that many songs you didn’t hear last time.

                    I kind of like the name.  To me "Freshen Up" means  polish up... make everything look sparkling and shiny again...

                    Webster's Dictionary definites it as "make (something) newer, cleaner, or more attractive."

                    Just one minor criticism though... I think a better photo could have been chosen for the advertising poster, just my opinion... Paul is still very good looking and there's so many great photos taken of him looking cool while he's in concert.   Don't think that is the best or most flattering photo that could have been chosen... some of you may disagree, but just my opinion.      And having it in color using the same colors used for the Egypt Station" album cover might have been a better choice too.    Perhaps that's just preliminary advertising and the official poster hasn't been released yet.   (Edited to add:   Below is poster I'm referring to, on Ticketmaster site)

                    Edited to add:  I think the new tour title suggests that the setlist will be refreshed as well.. not an entirely new setlist, but with quite a few songs added or removed.   Whatever he chooses to sing is fine with me though.

                          I bet he doesn't change many songs...except for the new ones & maybe a couple others.

                            Folks going to these shows, read the Verified Fan rules carefully. If the system is the same, not everyone will get a code and be able to purchase.

                              Me too! Hopefully around Christmas time, what better present could ya ask for 

                                I think that a tour name that played off the new album would have been better. The train theme fits with touring. 

                                Some like “Next Stop”

                                    YES!!!

                                    Cue all memories of "minty fresh".......this is the time. WIth a name like "Freshen Up"...if he doesn't change it now, he truly never, ever will. I'm talking a solid 60% of the show...and that doesn't mean cutting staples...just "freshening". The sequencing can play a big part in that too.

                                      Hold onto that thought! And please let it be heard!!!

                                        You'd need God himself to intervene and even then 60% would be asking a lot.

                                            We are looking forward to freshening up our show and playing some of our songs from the new album alongside those songs we know you like to hear.
