From The Columbus Dispatch, October 14th 2015:
Paul McCartney has nothing left to prove. After nearly three hours and three dozen songs Tuesday night at Nationwide Arena, any doubters surely came around. Yes, he played “those songs,” many, many of them. He dressed them in a half-dozen or so Wings songs and a few new ones from his most recent release, 2013’s New.
The 73-year-old exhibited confidence, humility, an easy sense of humor, and a contagious feeling of fulfillment that made even the most common, overly familiar Beatles hit, if not new again, certainly alive and well worth revisiting. […]
It helped that he had one of the finest bands on the road today. In fact the four of them — Rusty Anderson on guitar, Brian Ray on guitar and bass, Paul “Wix” Wickens on keyboards and the incredible Abe Laboriel Jr. on drums — rocked hard, sounded like twice as many musicians, and consistently found the right tone and beat to accompany the aged singer and material.
That’s not to say that McCartney wasn’t physically up to the task. Near the end, it seemed the audience would tire first, the band second and McCartney third. […]
McCartney came armed with perhaps the simplest stage set accompanying a major artist out there today. His quintet played every note with very little spectacle, other than the flash pots on Live and Let Die. But he didn’t need any of it.
