This was the second of two consecutive nights at the Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, and the third date of the “Got Back” tour.

From paulmccartney.com, May 23, 2022:

The May 3 Seattle setlist featured some second-night reshuffling, with ‘Let ‘Em In’ and ‘We Can Work It Out’ making their GOT BACK tour debuts, replacing ‘Women and Wives’ and ‘I’ve Just Seen a Face’ from the previous night. Later, a jaunty ‘Queenie Eye’ would be back in the slot occupied by ‘New’ the night before, ably upping the tempo as Paul descended from the elevated platform on which he rises for solo acoustic performances of ‘Blackbird’ and ‘Here Today’.

Paul and the band have clearly settled in for night two in Seattle, seamless segues like a swoon-inducing ‘My Valentine’ into the raucous stomp of a killer Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five’ abound. And the in-song transition from Paul on ukulele and voice to the full band on ‘Something’ packed a particular wallop this evening, the audio and visual tributes to George Harrison resonating with the multigenerational throng (which ranged from 20-somethings taking their presumably first Macca show selfies to a superfan brandishing a sign proclaiming tonight their 126th Paul concert—and from baby boomers to an actual baby (!). 

Alas all good things must come to an end—in this case that being an incendiary encore featuring a rollicking ‘Birthday’ and a pinned-in-the-red ‘Helter Skelter’—and it’s the close of the latest chapter in Paul’s long and storied history with Seattle, and time to head down the coast to…

We traveled from Royal Oak, Mi —just north of Detroit—for the show. Our son and his fiancé joined us. Both in their mid-twenties, they loved it as much as we did. We were very happy about that. For good measure, we stayed at the Edgewater Hotel. What fantastic memories we made. We love you, Paul!
