Fans who bought Paul McCartney tickets for his On The Run tour certainly got their money’s worth with nearly 40 tracks and two encores performed each night. Alongside a plethora of The Beatles classics such as “The Long & Winding Road,” “Hey Jude” and “Eleanor Rigby,” McCartney also performed several of Wings’ biggest hits including “Band On The Run,” “Live & Let Die” and “Mull of Kintyre” and even the odd track from his experimental electronic side-project, The Fireman. While with numbers from the 70s (“Maybe I’m Amazed”), 80s (“Here Today”) 90s (“Beautiful Tonight”), 00s (“Dance Tonight”) and his most recent studio effort, 2012’s Kisses On The Bottom (“My Valentine”), McCartney also treated the crowds to the best of his 40-year solo career.
And after working with the likes of Amy Winehouse producer Mark Ronson and Sir George Martin’s son Giles on a record planned for release later this year, expect to hear the odd new track amongst his iconic back catalogue too.
