McCartney wings his way to rocking open for arena

PITTSBURGH - Blasting off with "Venus& Mars/Rockshow" Wednesday, music's biggest star launched the live entertainment era at Consol Energy Center.

Paul McCartney picked that 1975 Wings tune, followed by another Wings tune, "Jet," to start his historic grand opening show for Pittsburgh's spacious new arena.

A sold-out crowd came for the Beatles tunes, of course, and Sir Paul, looking and sounding fit, didn't make them wait long, singing "All My Loving" and "Got to Get You into my Life" within the first five songs.

After his sixth song, "Highway" from his underrated band The Fireman, McCartney ditched his dark sports jacket, revealing his white shirt and suspenders.

"OK, that is the big wardrobe change" he joked before shredding through Wings' "Let Me Roll It" and a brief but fiery cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Foxy Lady" then a lovely "Long and Winding Road."

For a complete review, revisit timesonline.com or read the "Weekend" section of Friday's Times.

chrisstevens:Probably because She Loves You is a mostly shared vocal performance with John. Same goes for I Want To Hold Your Hand.

He did Lennon composition/lead vocal "Please Please Me" live...


Plus "Honey Hush", "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying", "Calico Skies" and a brief version of "Let It Snow".

Although the pre-show music changed from time to time, we've discussed this some time ago, but can't seem to find the topic at this moment .

edit: Found it! http://maccaboard.paulmccartney.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=2286612#2286612

Though since that time we've found some more songs on the list.
