Again, McCartney gets no excuses from me, and my post are not just wishful thinking!
Over all these decades, McCartney has had plenty of time to change his setlist! This isn't something that just started recently, people have been asking for changes since the 90's, I know because I'm one of them! I saw his setlist becoming predictable and staying Beatle heavy back then, and it has remained that way! The people seeing him for the first time thing is tired and old now, they've had all these decades to see McCartney's Beatle heavy setlist!
More people know his more current music than you think, just look at Youtube and all the different musicians and people doing versions of his more current music! How many of his more current albums were in the top ten? His standards album was #1 on the billboard jazz chart! There's just no excuse for it anymore, the man has the material, he should be reaching much deeper than he does!
Yes he's 75, but he's still performing live and if he can still sing the songs he does, he can still add new ones! He's probably going to add songs from his new album, so he could add songs from thru out his career! As I posted earlier, he could do songs he hasn't done since the 70s, if they were good enough then, believe me they are probably even better now!
No one can tell me, crowds wouldn't be thrilled to hear Big Barn Bed, The Mess, Smile Away, Getting Closer, I've Had Enough, I Can Bet, That Was Me, House Of Wax, Take It Away, No More Lonely Nights, One Of These Days, Cafe On The Left Bank, Beware My Love, Best Friend, With A Little Luck, etc.
He plays some fantastic songs during his soundchecks, why not add them to the actual show? The song Alligator is one of them, another is Friends To Go, two great songs, why not do them in the show?! I just don't get it?
When it comes to live performance, Paul McCartney is leaving so much fantastic music just lying on the table?!
