      Someone maintains the song "Uncle Albert and Admiral Halsey" has "never" been done live, but I'm pretty sure I remember he did in the Charlotte July 2010 concert, and it sounded just amazing...also I thought he's done it in Liverpool live, before? At a special Liverpool concert event?

      The song went to number one in the U.S. in 1971 (smiley face).

        On second thought, it was "Let 'Em In" he did in Charlotte in 2010, I believe. I get the two songs mixed up sometimes; or aren't they each parts of one long song?  I think so. Sorry, I stayed up all night again, LOL

        It's a bit bedazzling and a tad bedevilling how many songs he's got, so you can get some mixed up  or even mistaken for each other and look like an ejit, LOL, or forget they're parts of a medley, so to speak (?)...

          Someone trotted out a setlist from that night, from ABC and Let 'Em In isn't on it; I think that setlist is wrong. I'm almost certain I heard him sing that live there. I seem to recall it so clearly. Maybe I'm wrong and it was Liverpool where I heard it live (in a video or something, not there in person).  I remember hearing it live somewhere.

            I don't think Paul has ever performed Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey live during a concert before and although Let Em In was regularly performed live during the 1976 world tour by Wings, I can't recall Paul performing it live as a solo artist. Maybe he has slipped it into one of his concerts but I can't think which one it would have been. 

              Except for "Mull of Kintyre," Paul doesn't do one-off songs on his tours.  "Uncle Albert" is the one I've never heard, but wish he would play.

                Paul has done Let Em In a few times live

                  Thanks for the correction and the link...that's a great version.

                    Let em in was a regular part of the 1990 tour, iirc he swapped the set a bit half way through the tour and added it (or took it away, i can't remember which half of the tour it was in! But it was in it!).
