Watched the video last night - a very good show. For all the (legitimate in my view) griping about this setlist when it was on tour, it was clearly pitched exactly right for this crowd, who ate it up. And the band all played a blinder. A couple of notes:
- Paul really tore it up on Purple Haze, that was very impressive.
- Maybe the best Maybe I'm Amazed since about 2015, he really went for it.
- I don't particularly dig either of the Egypt Station songs in the set on the record, but they're both really powerful live.
- You can see why ISHST isn't in the set regularly these days. Was very odd seeing Paul take the low harmony, though it worked well with Grohl.
- Did the flash pot at the end of Live and Let Die fail? Paul was doing his usual fingers in ears pose, and then... nothing! Followed by him laughing about it. Ah, technology.
- I was surprised he brought the "Out There" video platform to Glastonbury, and I'm curious if that meant the stage was further back than it would otherwise have been.
- Something I hadn't picked up on as much until this video is just how complex the Mr Kite bass line is. Crazy that he learned that and manages to do it live every night.
- What on earth happened to his guitar at the start of I've Got a Feeling? You could tell the audience didn't really recognize the song until Rusty came in.
- No "see you next time" at Glasto, which I suppose is fair enough, if we're lucky enough to get any more gigs, he certainly won't be doing this one again.
