      Anyone else from here going tomorrow? This will be my second (and I assume final) Paul show, previous one was Denver 2010-07-15, which was great. 

        So I guess this will be the test of whether he switches out any songs from the set list. He's fairly often has a slot or two that switches between 2 different tunes from night to night. Anyone want to place a bet?

           I think it'll be changing 'I've just seen a face' for 'We can work it out', and 'Birthday' for 'I saw her Standing There'

            Thanks Bruce for a great question.

            After watching the Multi-Cam video of the full Spokane Show a few times, I have a few tracks that I hope he switches out for tonight's show.

            I'm hoping that he adds some  McCartney 3 songs because he sings his newer songs better because he recorded them just a couple of years ago.  For example, one of his best vocals in Spokane was "Women and Wives" from McCartney 3.

            My 1st choice would be "Find My Way" from McCartny 3.   I would love it if he would open the show with Find My Way but it would also be a great 2nd song.  Would also love to hear the "live" horns on "Find My Way".

            My 2nd choice would be "Seize the Day" also from McCartney 3.  It would be great to hear how the "full band" would play it with all their instruments.  It is also a great song (melody and lyrics) and a song that everybody should know.  I would play "Seize the Day" instead of "Let Me Roll It" since he has played it so often.

            My 3rd choice would be "Slidin" a great rocker from McCartney 3.  I hope he plays Slidin in the Encore instead of "Helter Skelter".  Everybody knows "Helter Skelter" but everybody should know "Slidin".   Another great new Song and l would love to hear Rusty's Solo guitar part.

            My 4th choice would be "Happy With You" (from Egypt Station) as a tribute song to Nancy.

            Finally I'm hoping he drops Maybe I'm Amazed.  I know it's a classic but unfortunately Pauol can't sing it anymore.  My replacement choice woould be "I Don't Know" from the recent Egypt Station album.  It's a great song and in the middle he sings his love for Linda.  Paul played "I Don't know" a few times in Soundchecks on his last tour and it sounded very good.  "I Don't Know" is one of Paul's best (top 10) Solo songs in my opinion.

            After watching the full video of the Spokane Show, I think Paul did a great job on the whole.  I loved the whole acoustic section including "In Spite of All the Danger" (love Paul's acoustic guitar solo part), "Love Me Do", "Dance Tonight"(love Abe's dancing), "Blackbird" and finally "Here Today".  I thought Paul's Banter throughout this part was excellent.  I also loved the opening Encore song "I Got a Feeling" and the "Virtual" Screen/Video Part wth John singing with Paul.  Great touch!

            Even at his age (almost 80) and how much he struggles now singing, I think he gives one of the best live concerts because the audience feels like they "know Paul" after its over.   He's very warm as he discusses the songs and his career.

              Switches out "Juniors Farm" with "Find My Way" is my guess.

                Great choice Yankeefan and replacement for "Junior's Farm".

                  The addition of those "McCartney III" songs would be nice. While I don't expect to hear all of them I do hope he adds at least one more with "Women And Wives".  I think "Happy With You" would be excellent choice to sing for his wife but Paul seems to love "My Valentine"  plus it is part of his piano section of the show and he plays acoustic guitar on "Happy With You".

                  Paul has not been able to sing "Maybe I'm Amazed" properly for a long time, he should drop it but will keep it. It is a signature song and one of the few non-Beatle songs first timers might know. "I Don't Know" would be good exchange and as you said he has played it in soundcheck.

                  Acoustic section is fine but please get rid of "In Spite Of All Danger".  Do "Rocky Raccoon", "Little Willow" or "Early Days", much better songs and if he ever did "Rocky Raccoon" the audience would go nuts -lol.

                  It is amazing that at almost 80 he still does an almost 3 hour show, he does give the crowd their money's worth. Paul is the ultimate showman and knows how to connect with audience. Sure, I would love he drop some old stories and mix in some new ones but too hard to change his ways at his age I guess -lol.

                    Great Post Yankeefan and I do agree...the crowd would go nuts if he did "Rocky Raccoon".

                      The latter would be great, I'd much prefer I Saw Her Standing There.

                        I am on my way with a last minute ticket. Taking the bus to Seattle right now. So excited to be able to go to the show after all!

                          Any Soundcheck reports out there?

                              If Baltimore soundcheck resembles that, I'm quite amped!! Would SO love to finally hear "Coming Up" especially! As well as "C Moon" and "Every Night"!

                                😂 Exactly! 

                                  Opened with "Can't Buy Me Love" again.....

                                    Setlist.fm is reporting "Find My Way"...anyone watching a feed that can confirm?

                                      https://www.tiktok.com/@lfl07/live?_r=1&sec_user_id=MS4wLjABAAAAQVCU2_Zeif_ajp9yNPmjlTWnlKEOJenZxJm6z53WoQl2OavC-wzL1Y42xLqvlzMF&share_app_id=1233&share_link_id=c34dd188-7796-4888-8cfe-60c4287ae198&source=h5_m&ugbiz_name=Live&user_id=6686811500952585221

                                        Watching the live feed and I'm curious, am I the only one that finds the giant glow sticks annoying? Man, I would hate to be around those things being waved all around and blocking views all night!

                                          I'm not on Tiktok and am not watching a feed, has anything changed whatsoever tonight?

                                            Agree...I was at Spokane show and I noticed them from a few rows away. It would be irritating if close to them
