This was the second of two nights in Oakland, and the fifth date of the “Got Back” tour.
From PaulMcCartney.com, March 11, 2022:
NEW DATE ADDED: Sunday 8 May – Oakland, CA – Oakland Arena
Paul will play a second night at Oakland Arena on Sunday, May 8 for a very special Mother’s Day performance. After quickly selling out the first show (May 6, 2022), Paul McCartney is adding a second show as part of his GOT BACK tour, a 13-city return to U.S. stages. The May 8 show will be the final date announced for this U.S. tour. McCartney’s two-night run at Oakland Arena will mark his first performances in Oakland in 20 years.
From paulmccartney.com, May 23, 2022:
All of which begs the question: how does one follow that? To anyone who’s ever seen two Paul McCartney shows knows the answer, namely to give another adoring audience yet another singular and unforgettable near-three-hours of music, memories, love, hope and positivity—and in the case, a very special Mother’s Day.
From the call out to “… mothers and men…” in the lyrics of ‘Women and Wives’ early in the evening to ‘My Valentine’, ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’, ‘Lady Madonna’ and of course ‘Let It Be’, the influence of the mothers in Paul’s life and lyrics cannot be overstated. So it’s only natural that the second Oakland show added due to overwhelming popular demand would take place on Mother’s Day, adding yet another dimension of the GOT BACK experience to those fortunate enough to attend with their mothers. And for the rest of us, there are the equally undeniable waves of joy that accompany moments like tonight’s return of ‘I’ve Just Seen A Face’ to the live set, a deafening audience singalong to ‘Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da’, the odyssey that ‘Band On The Run’ sweeps us into, and the always poignant closing lines of ‘The End’ followed as ever by Paul’s promise that he’ll see us all again… and that’s more than enough.
