From Austin360, October 12, 2018:

[…] But can a 76-year-old and an all-male backing band hold everyone’s attention for more than two hours? Travis Scott got the job done in 45 minutes and McCartney’s 50 years his senior.

Mostly! This was McCartney holding court like the best dinner party host. He was loose and riffing like Austin Powers. His intermittent chatter varied from last week — “We got a return booking,” he humbly deadpanned early on. He joked that writing with the G-minor chord was his songwriting “turning point.” He thanked “Shakey” for working “the lights.” I kept waiting for him to offer us a spot of tea. […]

It was the last night of McCartney’s “little tour,” he said. This 31-song set was more vibrant: He cut “Hi, Hi, Hi,” and “Can’t Buy Me Love” and added “All My Loving” and the previously mentioned “We Can Work It Out.”

He ran almost 10 minutes after the 10 p.m. end time. Like the righteous and forward-looking, politically minded David Byrne set three hours earlier on the same stage, McCartney showed us that old dogs can stay young by listening, learning, embracing change and trying to be better citizens. The love you take is equal to the love you make … so hit the “25 percent” button on the tablet when you tip the bar staff this weekend, folks.
