Despite my disappointment with the current tour's lack of changes, I've still gotta ask...

Any word on when the next batch of dates might be announced?

I've heard rumors of Green Bay, LA, San Diego and Chicago.... anywhere else?  And when?

Mr. Gannon, what have you got for us?

I saw those hints that you speak as a way to move more codes.  However, those cities may NOT be getting shows IMHO.  They have targeted some larger markets just to make fans "panic" and purchase more codes.  All those clues stated was more dates were being announced, it never specifically said those areas are getting shows.  I could be wrong, but he is already doing a show in MAdison and Moline.  Not sure if Chicago and Greenbay make sense at this point.

Then why have those targeted ads for those cities in particular? Would seem kinda weird to place ads mentioning those cities, and then end up not doing shows there. 

Large populations.  The ad went something like "Chicago-more Paul Mccartney dates being revealed soon, purchase presale codes etc".  It never specifically stated that Chicago,Boston,La,etc were getting shows, just "keep your eyes open" for new dates in general  The Chicagio area has gotten quite a few shows over the last few years including Lolla.  Not sure if another gig their specifically makes sense.  Who knows, we'll have to wait and see.

Thoughts after seeing him for the first time since Out There 2014 at ACL last night.

 

- AHDN works very well as an opener, but nothing beats Magical Mystery Tour in my opinion 

- Hi, Hi, Hi works very well in the 2nd spots

- the horns bring so much energy to the show, not that any was lacking

- My Valentine is still a down point

- the audience sat through the Egypt Station songs he played (Come On To Me, Fuh You),but he could've curated better ES picks for the crowd (Happy With You or Confidante? Who Cares could've worked too)

- the acoustic set works well, In Spite of All The Danger isn't my favorite choice (would rather have You Won't See Me). 

- Lady Madonna rocked more than it ever has with the live horns

- Mr Kite was very cool with the visuals

- Ob-La-Di went over very well with the crowd and the singalong

- Live and Let Die was very cool with the horns

- Encore was great length for the fest

 

Overall, I had a great time at the show. Wonder if he'll change it up for next weekend

 

Exactly why you wont see a ton of ES songs.  Crowd was snoozing.  You think Confidante or People Want Peace would go over any better?!?! People will pay $50-$2000+ per ticket, but wont bother to spend $10 on the new record, or listen for FREE with the copy they got with their ticket purchase. That being said the album was numero uno for a week.  Whats the point of recording an album if you dont play it.  In Spite of All the Danger is a bit of a dud at this point.  Its time Paul lowers the key to most of his songs.  His voice is barely hanging in there, and you can hear the strain he is putting into it.

From the first "Its been a.." in AHDN throught The End you can hear him fighting to hit the right key. Lowering the key would help TREMENDOUSLY for him, and 99% of the audience would hardly notice.

Ditch the 15 song soundcheck too.  That cant help his voice either for the main show.  And for gosh sakes..take a sip of water!!

Unfortunately nothing at this time. The pace and space between the announcements has made things very tough. Can only bother folks so many times

They did run this article in the San Diego Union about Paul "possibly" playing in San Diego next year. This was a while ago, but there's been nothing about it since.  I don't know why the local paper would even publish this unless there was some truth to it.

There referencing his own FB page as their source.  Not some insider source. I still think that was a ploy just to get people to buy more records/codes based on a persons geographic location.  Im sure he WILL add more US dates next year, and maybe Cali is on the list, but I wouldn't expect an announcement anytime soon.  Still plenty of time.

titorules007:I disagree with you on the new album. I love it and wish he would add more to the live show.

I believe he means "NEW," not the most recent new album.  I tend to agree with him.  Most of the songs have been done to death.  Paul has his idea on what people who attend his concerts expect or want to hear...but many of what he chooses don't necessarily fit that criteria.  And certainly not  for the 100th time!  Some he just can't sing anymore...."Maybe I'm Amazed."  Please stop doing this song....or make it a soft acoustic number.  There are scads of Beatles' songs people are aware of....do 'em!!!!  Change it up! Just an opinion, folks!  

I actually thought Maybe I'm Amazed sounded fine in Austin. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da was the one that he really struggled with

LOL!

Unfortunately nothing new from Tokyo, same setlist. Just "All my loving" instead of "Can't buy me love".

At least I hope he had played "I don't know" during the souncheck.

 

Embarrassing

A little late on this thread, but lets be honest...he doesn's sing consistently well anymore.  Confidante IS my fave tune on ES, but it is sung out of tune on the record.  It doesn't take the ears of Dumbo to hear this on Confidante, or his failing voice at many live shows.  He has his good nights and bad nights, but most nights are a struggle. It has nothing to do with youtube clips or anyhting else.  He gives it his all every show.  No doubt!  The 15 song soundchecks doesnt help.  Most performers do 2-3 songs and thats it.  No water, no vocal coach(i assume), and shredding his voice for years live leads to his current vocal.  It reminds me of ROger Daltrey pre surgery.  Roger sounded pretty rough, had surgery on his vocal chords, and sounds strong now.

For what its worth, i highly dount he hangs out on Facebook like some teenage girl waiting for a "thumbs up" from people.  I don't think he cares about some anonymous persons critique.

  I was just watching the Ed Sullivan gig from 92-93 with his old (and better) band.  He is nearly flawless on that gig.  Does anybody think he can still sing "Fixing a Hole" like that at that gig?!?!  No chance.

Any news, reviews, vids about this concert? Hasn't it already happened? Or is it going on right now? Wish you who attended would give reports. Thanks.

You do realize depending on where you live in the US, Tokyo is appox 6,000 miles away and 13-16 hrs ahead of us here in America.  The show was over yesterday morning here in the States.  Same setlist, no surpises, no Yesterday.  Doubt its the guitar, as he has more than one.

Well deserved.  Great crowds there!  Much better than the embarrassed to express themselves North American crowds.
