Since he acknowledges "Uncle Albert's" fan requests and the aspects of learning/performing it for live presentation, makes you wonder what other songs he would probably think the fans want to hear, but may be a challenge to do because of the arrangement/timing/rhythm, etc. He nails Mr. Kite, so I say go for it!
I say go for it too. Do it in Japan in November!!!!!!!!! I'll lap it up...
Paul's concert in Japan was great. I enjoyed it very much. But unfortunately ticket sales through the official site was worst. Many fans could not receive tickets until the day of the concert. Even if tickets were received, it was just before the concert . Crowdsurge is bulls**t. Their work was too slow, and it was negligence and bad faith. When we made the inquiry to them, what they answered was just a lie. The official site should change to another company, such as ticketmaster.
That has been my experience with Crowdsurge also, not to mention the foreign surcharge because they are based in the UK. I know longer even try to get tickets through Crowdsurge.
What happened to the days where you could buy your tickets at the box office/record store IN CASH for HALF THE PRICE of today's "SERVICE" FEES??
I wish you could still buy tickets for that cheap, however, my friend and I bought tickets for Paul at Wrigley Field at the box office before the show and paid cash. It was over $500 cash and we were a little messed up to say the least; stuffing wads of cash through the little slot in the window with a sea of people all around us waiting.

Like it very much !! IMO - change "Wanderlust" to "Take It Away" and "Dance Tonight" to "Run Devil Run" and it would be perfect - lol.
It's old hat now but i was there in halifax when the first of the sign me/tattoo people got pulled onstage. I believe her name was audrey but could be mistaken. It was such an unexpected moment and i was amazed he actually signed a person! Like i said, just part of the show now but that first one was really unexpected. And fun for the audience as well as the signee.
Her name is Audrey. She is the original tattoo girl! All the others are copy cats. She was so excited and thrilled. To me, since it was so unexpected for her, her reaction was the most real. The others are happy, but not to the extent Audrey was. She also has never made a big deal about it like so many others have. She just went on to live her life. It's gotten so out of hand now with all the competition with the outlandish signs. Not seeing any shows this year, but I found it boring at the shows I have attended since it has become part of the routine. It was fun when he would have somebody from the audience on stage rarely. No longer fun for me, but I won't be seeing it again in person.
" but I found it boring at the shows I have attended since it has become part of the routine." Exactly. It is neat when it is random and spur of the moment but when it is routine it gets old real fast.
I'd be much more keen on it if it was the occasional tattoo and more posters and moments like Get Back in Argentina with the girl on bass. That was cool. He should do more of those. I remember when I saw CHeap Trick a few years ago (what is it with all the Macca/Cheap Trick comparisons?), and they let some teen/tween girls up on stage to sing the "mommy's alright" parts in Surrender. Paul should do more stuff like that. Even if that was routine I wouldn't mind it.
