    Paul McCartney - Up and Coming Tour

    It was Monday, July 26th, 2010 when Nashville finally recieved the promise that Paul McCartney made about 38 years ago of putting Nashville, TN on his tour schedule.  Mike Arnold, Tom Thompson, and James Downing were part of 20,000 extremely excited fans that believe it was well worth the wait.

    Sir Paul led the crowd through his musical history with songs from his solo efforts, selections from his project called “The Firemen”, hits and obscure songs from Wings, and of course some classics from a former band called “The Beatles.”

    On the first encore he even brought a child from the crowd on stage to dance and sing backup with him.  On the second encore he had his security team to bring a lady on stage so he could sign her back below her bass tatoo.

      1. I’m glad to have been a part of this podcast. The show was awesome. And I SWEAR I did not mean to steal your setlist notes. I was half-way up the elevator when I realized it was still in my hand. Sorry guys! But it did come in handy while I filmed about an hour of the show. It’s at http://www.youtube.com/user/TheDailyVinyl. Enjoy!

        BEST concert ever. Even my 15 year old daughter thought so. She said he was even better thant he Jonas Brothers. This was a dream come true coming to see Paul. HE was amazing.

      3. I attended this concert. Paid for tickets for 6 family members and myself. We were terrible disappointed with Paul McCartney. It’s time for Paul to retire, his voice trembled really bad , the music was fine but his voice was saying ” stop “. Yes, we were terribly disappointed.

        I have to wonder if you were at the same concert. I found Paul’s voice to be great. So did my daughter, and she has a gift for music. He has non-stop energy. He was amazing. His voice was a little deeper than his Beatles days, but still on key and sounding great. Maybe it was the speakers. We were extremely close to the stage.
