      That's a great clip, but it doesn't capture how nuts the crowd went for In the Road.
      I got a full video of it, but can't post it because (1) my network connection sucks atm and (2) it contains large portions of just me screaming and shaking the camera. But anyway, it was a big crowd favorite moment.
      And you can also hear in the other clip how the crowd wouldn't stop singing HJ, though Paul didn't oblige with a restart a la 1990 Give Peace a Chance.

        Thanks people for posting these links

          It looks like "Why Don't We Do It In The Road" has its own video art, so I guess it'll be added to the regular set. Unfortunately Paul doesn't sing that one so well, he should replace it, maybe with a Wings hit like "Goodnight Tonight" or "Girls School".
          But I hope "I Wanna Be Your Man" will stay, Paul sang it really good and it's a nice little song for the encore, I would love to hear that live more often.

            I watched the video twice and I have to disagree. I thought his vocals on "Road" were great.
            His ad-libs were very good and the rawness on his vocals was spot-on especially considering he had never sung it live before. The only time he slightly faltered was when he tried sing it in a higher key but that is to be expected. I also really liked it when Neil Young joined in and Neil's guitar solo was fantastic.

              I think I've seen that Road graphic before in his show but can't place where. Was it recycled from a different song? I hope he keeps Road in his regular show. I Wanna Be Your Man would be a nice refresher in the Can't Buy Me Love or Hard Day's Night spot in the show. I'm glad Jet and Day Tripper came back. A Day in the Life / Give Peace a Chance served as a nice birthday tribute to John. If last night's show had been the actual setlist for the whole tour, this tour would have been way more interesting.

                Paul called a fan onstage last night. He had a sign that read: "give me a hug and make me Young again". Judging by the smile on his face, that's how he felt!

                  Here's a video of "Something" and the out of tune ukulele which had to be switched.

                    That's Neil Young.

                      Agreed! For the first time live, revisiting a deep cut that had those raw Macca vocals...I loved it! Thought he sounded great! He was getting more into it as it went on, too. Too cool!

                        ~lady*madonna~:That's Neil Young.

                        Which is why I placed the word "Young" in the imaginary sign

                          Love this! They always look like they're having so much fun when they're together. Paul seems to loosen up.

                            Also wanted to mention that Paul ran his full pre-show, including Rushes and the dance/covers mix, which no other artists have done so far. Certain songs in it, like Revolution, got a huge reaction, which was like a bonus show.

                                thank you for posting these clips!!
                                I can't believe he did "road"!!! It was fantastic!! I loved Neil's enthusiasm on stage with Paul. I also loved Neil's vocals on Day in the Life and his guitar on 'Road'.
                                I love that Paul played I wanna be your man as a tribute to the Stones, for their tribute to the Beatles.
                                (It's cool because even though it's a Stones song, technically, it's his song cuz he helped write it)

                                  Thanks for posting all these photos and reports!

                                  What a dream to see and hear Paul and Neil Young!

                                  I wish I could have been there! And there is the magick piano!??

                                    Jillian Mapes for Pitchfork.: "The ranking went a little something like this: Roger Waters was the best (with some credit due to Lucius' Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, who brought new life to Floyd's iconic vocal solos and accompaniments), followed by Neil Young (again with a nod to his backing players, Willie Nelson's sons' band Promise of the Real, who've leveled up). Then came the Who, the Stones, Dylan, and McCartney. Essentially, the three "most important" acts delivered the weakest shows.

                                    If you've seen McCartney's last few tours, you likely know his routine: the story about Jimi Hendrix (almost) learning Sgt. Pepper's in a few days and playing it live with the Beatles in the crowd, the intro to "Here Today" in which he laments not expressing his love to John Lennon before he died, the bit about George Harrison being a great ukulele player ahead of "Something," how "Blackbird" was his encouragement of the Civil Rights movement. And like his fellow septuagenarian icons (with the exception of Jagger), McCartney's voice has accumulated noticeable weak spots, mostly in the mid to high range. When Dylan--whose vocal decline and (even more noticeable) apathy for what fans want has become common knowledge over the last decade--outperforms you, it's time to shake things up a bit. You know, beyond clunkily reworking Rihanna and Kanye's parts in "FourFiveSeconds."

                                    But one high point came when Macca was joined by Young on "Why Don't We Do It in the Road," a song McCartney had apparently never performed live before Saturday, as well as "A Day in the Life" and "Give Peace a Chance." The two have played together before, but their bromance felt rare in its giddiness, particularly after seeing Young's scowl peek out under his hat during his own scorched-earth opening set of fresh environmental pleas and improvised favorites (including a 22-minute "After the Gold Rush" that felt like the true Zenith of Neil). Instead, a "pinch me" smile was plastered on Young's face as he stared at McCartney and screamed Lennon's words of peace--an expression appreciated, and maybe even echoed, in the crowd."

                                      It's obvious that Jillian Mapes doesn't like Paul McCartney. He/She brings up the "tired" Setlist stories as his/her primary examples for ranking Macca at the bottom. But for probably 80-90% of the audience, these stories/origins of the quoted songs had never been heard. For the overwhelming % of people in the huge audience, these tidbits and facts about the songs were extremely interesting. Certainly Mr./Ms Mapes was not basing his/her ranking and criteria on the "enjoyment of the audience" but more on a preconceived opinion.

                                        Pitchfork guy is an idiot. Stones clearly best show. Waters best production but far from best

                                            So it's a sign of anti-Paul bias when a critic makes the exact same complaints that lots of us on this board make all the time? :
