I used Paul concerts I have attended from 2008-2015 to test data analysis software. I would have to physically count how many different songs there were, but I can say that he played 65% Beatles, 20% Wings, 14% solo, and 1% other.
5 different songs from Let It Be;
4 each from Abbey Road, the White Album, Sgt Pepper's;
3 from Magical Mystery Tour;
2 from Revolver, Help, Beatles For Sale, A Hard Day's Night;
1 from Please Please Me, With the Beatles, Rubber Soul, Yellow Submarine
He also played 6 different singles from 1964-1968.

Help, Abbey Road 83%, as were "Hey Jude" and "Lady Madonna";

Cool to see stats! Thanks Kahlida - how many Paul concerts have you been to? any soundchecks?
Chris Holmes posted his pre-show music from PetCo, it's 29 minutes.. also on his soundcloud is a pre-show track from 2013 -- that one is almost 2 hours long w lots of cover versions included.
Both worth a listen!!
what is the rationale for clear bags only??
cubsbrand23, the setlist is only 'blah' because you have seen him so many times. Count yourself lucky.
The first show I saw him at, 2013, I travelled great distance to see and it was a bucketlist item, I had seen the Beatles in '66 so I was determined to see at least Paul again. I have see him 2 times since, and I feel like that is enough, no more long journeys to get to a concert unless things drastically change. Now I look at him as a kind of Broadway show, not much variation between performances but always a good time.
BUT!! the first time I saw him, in 2013 I was blown away! I had never heard any of the stage chatter, it was all new and amazing! And the setlist was wonderful !! Later I was reading the bio 'FAB' and at the end, the author talks about a current concert and quotes some of the stage rap, and it was the same as what I saw, word for word! And tha book was published in 2010 I think. So you know the same chatter goes back to probably 2008 or so anyway, probably longer.
For most people, who cannot afford to travel far or go to mutilple shows, I'm sure they are just as impressed as I was the first time.
