Paul McCartney: December Performances

Paul McCartney performed at the Apollo Theatre in harlem, New York City, at a concert arranged by the digital radio network Sirius, who also broadcast the entire concert. To many fans' delight, the song "Maybe I'm Amazed" was back in his set again. The song had followed McCartney's set list ever since the first Wings concerts in 1972, but had been dropped around five years earlier. On December 5th, McCartney was one of the honourees at the 2010 Kennedy Center Awards, and Dave Grohl had been performing "Maybe I'm Amazed" at the tribute concert, which may have been what prompted McCartney to reconsider the song in his live set. Set list from the Apollo Theatre gig ("unusal" songs in bold): Magical Mystery Tour, Jet, Drive My Car, All My Loving, One After 909, Let Me Roll It, The Long and Winding Road, Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five, Maybe I'm Amazed, Blackbird, I'm Looking Through You, And I Love Her, Petrushka (improvised ditty sung in a "russian" accent), Dance Tonight, Eleanor Rigby, Hitch Hike (tribute to Marvin Gaye), Band On The Run, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, Back in the U.S.S.R., A Day in the Life/Give Peace a Chance, Let It Be, Hey Jude, Wonderful Christmastime, I Saw Her Standing There, Get Back, Yesterday, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)/The End.

The tickets for the HMV Apollo Hammersmith and Liverpool's 02 Academy had been and gone when McCartney surprised his fans with a club gig. The 100 Club was even smaller than the Cavern Club, and a handful of lucky fans were treated to a really intimate experience where one could communicate with the artist by shouting during silence. Set list: Matchbox, Magical Mystery Tour, Jet, Drive My Car, All My Loving, One After 909, Honey Hush, Let Me Roll It, The Long and Winding Road, Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five, Maybe I'm Amazed, Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying, Blackbird, Calico Skies, I'm Looking Through You, And I Love Her, Petrushka, Dance Tonight, Eleanor Rigby, Hitch Hike, Band On The Run, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, Let It Be, Hey Jude, Yesterday, Get Back, Sgt.
