About

From Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

When Paul McCartney played this part of town 50 years ago, he and the boys did about an hour and got out of Dodge before the girls ripped them apart.

Now, at 72, the ever-boyish Beatle continues to make it an evening, playing marathon sets of close to 40 songs. He returned Monday night for only his fourth visit here, at the sold-out Consol Energy Center, two shows into a U.S. leg of the Out There tour that was pushed back due to that mystery virus that threw Beatlemania into a brief Beatle panic.

We can confirm that Sir Paul is back in the pink. And we should just stop here and marvel at what a blessing it is to have a Beatle in our midst that can still represent at a high level.

On his last trip here, opening the venue in 2010, he eased in with Wings. This time, in a nod to the anniversary year, he hit the stage after 8:30 in vintage ’64 fashion with “Eight Days a Week,” launching a set generously stocked with more than two dozen Beatles, a side of Wings and a taste of the “New.” He established that ground early making the power-pop entry “Save Us” his second song and selling it hard.

Mr. McCartney wore the standard blue blazer, white shirt and black pants, Hofner bass and a smile fronting the unnamed band (guitarist Rusty Anderson, guitarist-bassist Brian Ray, keyboardist Paul “Wix” Wickens and drummer Abe Laboriel Jr.) he’s played with for the past dozen years, longer than both Wings and the Beatles. […]

He went off the standard set list to send a happy birthday to his dad and Ringo not with “Birthday” but a jaunty “Yellow Submarine.” “Here Today,” to John Lennon, was fragile and conflicted, and to beloved George Harrison he delivered a scratchy ukelele-led “Something” with audience sing-along.
