Sounds like many of us here need a breath of fresh air when it comes to Paul's current Live Shows and corresponding setlists.
Almost by accident I listened to the audio (On U-Tube) of the complete Last Flight in Glasgow 1979 Show. I would love if Paul's team would release a full movie (like Rockshow) of the Show.
The thing that struck me about this show (and why it is a breath of fresh air compared to the Out There and One on One tours) is that this concert was just 3 years after Wings Over America tour. The Glasgow Show was a "totally different" show and actually had less Beatle songs than 1976 (5 to 3 I think). Now is that refreshing compared to today. Here was the setlist:
Got to Get You Into My Life - at the time, it was the 1st time ever performed live
Get Closer - new from Back to the Egg...sounded great
Every Night - not played in 1976; great choice and slower arrangement than original
Again Again Again - new from 1977 Londontown...nice nod to Denny Laine
I've Had Enough - new from Londontown...sounded great
No Words - not played in 1976...the harmonizing with Denny and Paul sounded great
Old Siam Sir - new from Back to the Egg...sounded great
Maybe I'm Amazed - 1st duplication from 1976 show
Let It Be - not played in 1976; loved Paul's soulful phrasing on this one
Twenty Flight Rock - not played in 1976...Paul always sounds great on this one
Arrow Through Me. new from Back to the Egg ...loved it
Wonderful Christmas- new from 1978; since it was Christmas time...hardly surprising
Coming Up...new and not even released yet; would Paul ever do that today
Goodnight tonight...new single from earlier that year
Yesterday...2nd duplication and he gave Glasgow a complete version vs. 1976
Mull of Kintyre...new single from 1977
Band on the Run -show closer and 3rd duplication
ONLY 3 DUPLICATIONS FROM 1976 SHOW. I THINK TODAY WE'RE LUCKY IF THE TOTAL # SONGS THAT ARE NOT DUPLICATIONS MIGHT BE 3
What a lost opportunity for Paul not having a full Worldwide tour (especially in North America) in 1980. It probably would have given him opportunity to add a few more 70's songs that were not done in 1976 (i.e. Junk, The Mess, Single Pigeon, Tomorrow, Little Lamb Dragonfly).
The other thing is that I think Paul would have dramatically sold more copies of Back to the Egg. Hearing those songs live would have resonated with the audience to the point where many would have gone out and bought the album. There would have also been an opportunity for a 3 Sided Live Album similar to Wings Over America.
Even with Paul getting arrested in Japan, why did he decide to pull the plug on Wings. The Japan arrest as far as I know would not have prevented him from Legally Touring the US and Canada.
By the way, I thought Laurence Jubor and Steve Holly were very capable musicians as replacements for Jimmy and Joe. At least from the audio of the show, they sounded very good on electric guitar and drums respectively.
The only 2 songs that I didn't like from the Glasgow show was Wonderful Christmastime and Goodnight Tonight. The latter is too disco for my taste and Paul would not have played a Christmas song if he had done a US/Canada tour anyway. Just didn't care for Wonder Christmastime live.
I was listening to Last Flight and was writing the setlist down. I might have missed a song or two. Did they play Spin It On or any other song that I missed on my above list.
