On Paul's next tour he should develop it similar to the Concert For Montserrat (1997) or Elton John's 60th Birthday show at Madison Square Garden (2007). Elton had two choirs join him for songs during the show. Elton has also performed Orchestra concerts over the years in major world cities doing 3-5 night runs. Paul could develop a show that showcases Orchestra and Choirs for songs like: The Long And Winding Road Let It Be Hey Jude Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End She's Leaving Home Mother Natures Son Letting Go No More Lonely Nights Anyway My Valentine Good Day Sunshine Band On The Run Big Barn Bed Something Magical Mystery Tour Backseat Of My Car Maybe I'm Amazed Silly Love Songs C'mon People Feel free to sign the petition. Paul's shows keep getting better all the time!
I would be happy if he just had a horn section like he did with WOA tour.
I'm with you. Paul doesn't need a full orchestra and choir, but live horns would be great.
As things happen, there is a chance my good friend won't be able to see Paul. If this is the case I was wondering if anyone is going to the Tulsa shows from Chicago or near by and would want to split gas. I was looking at going down the 28th and returning on the 31st. We may be going or I may drive alone, just exploring my options.
I read somewhere, in a keyboard board, I think, that he uses 2 kind of keyboards. One is just the same Wix uses, Yamaha Motif 7. That is some keyboard with weight added to the keys, so it's got a similar feel that playing a piano. I think that's the one Paul uses for piano songs he does on keyboards, like Hey Jude. Then I remember Paul uses to play live a different keyboard too, some with normal keys, not weighted. The info I read was from the Back in the US tour. Wix plays a Motif 7 and the one above is a ... Korg I think or so... I guess that's the not weighted one Paul plays on the Fool On The Hill, For No One, Carry That Weight, etc part. For Let It Be, Hey Jude and Lady Madonna I think he plays a weighted one, the Motif 7. I don't know what kind of setting. I'm not sure about all this but I think there must be some video with some cam filming Paul from the back while playing keyboards so you can see the exact model he plays.
I think Glastonbury Hey Jude offers a fair glimpse at what's inside the 'magic piano' box (although I'm not well versed enough to know what I'm looking at...first time at around 1:38 or 1:39 of the video below and then several times after):
The earlier 'magic piano' (circa 1989/90 and 93) is a real piano I think)...if you move forward in the video below to 'The Long and Winding Road' and/or 'Maybe I'm Amazed', I think you can see what I mean:
One thing is for sure, Paul is not playing the same keyboard since the 60s as he does with the bass and some guitars.
I'll for sure be getting the dvd. I have to admit something-I took a nini-tv to my sister's wedding so I wouldn't miss it. Obviously in church I had to have my earphones in so no-one would hear it and I watched it all through the church service,during the photos outside,during the sit-down meal and during the reception party. I'm so bad
