The concert in Jacksonville was originally scheduled on June 22, but was postponed to this date due Paul’s illness. From paulmccartney.com, June 9, 2014:

I’m sorry but it’s going to be a few more weeks before we get rocking in America again. I’m feeling great but taking my docs’ advice to take it easy for just a few more days. Look forward to seeing you all soon.” — Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney has confirmed that he will, however reluctantly, heed medical advice to rest up just a bit longer to fully recuperate from the virus that forced the postponement of his recent dates in Japan and Korea.

The ‘Out There’ world tour will now resume July 5 in Albany, NY, and the June 14-26 shows in Lubbock, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville and Louisville have been rescheduled to October. Tickets for the original June dates will be honoured for the new dates detailed below.

From The Florida Times-Union – Jacksonville, FL, October 26, 2014:

Midway through “I Saw Her Standing There” Saturday night at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena, Paul McCartney let loose with a throat-ripping scream. It was the 33rd song of his set, well over two hours into the set.

How a 72-year-old guy’s voice can hold up like that is anybody’s guess. He mentioned during the show that he was just coming off a break spent in Florida; perhaps he found Ponce de Leon’s mythical Fountain of Youth during his vacation. The guy never even broke a sweat or sounded out of breath.

McCartney’s show ran for 2 hours, 40 minutes and was heavy on mid- to late-period Beatles songs.

It got off to a bit of a rocky start. The show was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. At 8:10, old photos of McCartney started scrolling down the big video screens that flanked the stage. Anticipating that the show was about to start, the sold-out crowd quickly made its way to the seats. Thirty minutes later, the photos were still scrolling and McCartney was nowhere in sight. […]

McCartney played his signature Hofner bass for only about half of the show. He played a grand piano, a funky psychedelic upright piano, six- and 12-string acoustic guitars, a ukulele and an electric guitar (tearing into a snippet of Jimi Hendrix’s “Foxy Lady” at the end of “Let Me Roll It.” He also spent a good amount of time interacting with the crowd, reading fans’ signs and inviting one woman onstage, where he signed her back so she could have it tattooed permanently.
