Hello boardies! Guess it’s been so long since I’ve posted that the forum has changed LOL. I have not heard a single rumour about 2023, but someone I know who is on Facebook (I’m not) said there are some about the US. That’s extremely un-specific, has anyone else seen anything within the last few days?

Apparently, at Glastonbury he said that it was the last night of the Got Back tour. That surprised me as I thought it would continue with UK/European, and South American dates. Perhaps these will occurr in the autumn as part of a newly named tour?
If he actually said it on stage (is it part of the video?), then it seems that there are no more dates scheduled this year. Any additional 2022 shows (anywhere) would have been already scheduled by now, and it would just be a matter of publicly announcing them.
RE: Cheese & Grain, Frome - June 24, 2022
Reminds me of the Pappy and Harriet's gig he did in between the Desert Trip weekends. I don't believe that setlist was very different than his usual, so not holding my breath for this show. But it will be amazing just to see him in a small venue! Tickets were only available at the box office and went very quickly from what I heard.
RE: Camden Yards, Baltimore, MD, June 12th - CONFIRMED
He's the man. Baltimore rocked, as we all knew it would.
Gosh, I remember getting on here and writing huge reviews and everyone chit-chatting about each other's experiences...and it just seems like crickets post-show now!
Some of us are still here! Please give us your review, and what did you think of soundcheck?
RE: MetLife Stadium, New Jersey - June 16, 2022 Confirmed
Now that Ringo's tour has been called off after two of the All Stars contracted Covid; does the rumor mill still suggest he shows up Thursday night or does he simply fly home now. Here are my guesses for the pre Macca birthday show Thursday.
Ringo. Yes he still makes an appearance. Paul did it for his 70th at Radio City Music Hall. I was there!
Jon Bon Jovi
If Paul is ok with guests (he still has to stay healthy for Glasto) Bruce is possible, he showed up at Coldplay's MetLife concert last week.

Was also in Knoxville. There is definitely stubble LOL.
LetMeRollIt, where the heck were the back gates? Media told everyone to get there early for parking and as a result, there was a huge cluster at all the doors when they opened, and it took ages to get inside. Very disorganized and the heat didn't help. We were there very early for limo watch and then had a ton of time to waste because Paul arrived before 4:30, which is super-early for him. If I had known how bad the doors would be, we would have camped out near one so as to be first in.
Knoxville had a great, loud crowd which Paul acknowledged several times. His voice definitely sounds better live. He did take a drink before the platform solo set, and also took another one right before Live and Let Die.
John - Coming Up gets done in soundcheck sometimes and does sound great with the horn section. It would be fun if he put it into the set.
And it seems that Women and Wives has disappeared; I thought he was doing it on alternate nights, but during a discussion about it after the show, I checked setlist.fm, and it seems that it has not been performed since Fort Worth. Which is disappointing. I am glad I caught it in Seattle (at a show and a soundcheck).
Will see if I can remember anything else unique to Knoxville...
Front row "D", Always happy to see you and the crew!!! As usual, another GREAT concert .
Likewise! It was a great show and happy to see you!!!
RE: Set List critique
Not a bad go at it, either:
First time with horns in concert since '76, no?
Yes. He didn't sing Jet in 2019 when the horns first returned. He did a good job of it!
He was doing it in soundcheck with the horns in 2019, I heard it a couple of times and it sounded great!
RE: Set List critique
I gave up on radical set list changes a long time ago. I'm just happy he is still performing and that I can still go to see him. And I was very worried about his voice on this tour, but it sounds better than I expected it to. It's never going to be what it was, of course, but he was not croaking into the mic for 2 hours, either.
