Here’s the setlist from Paul McCartney’s first show in Australia since 1993

The legend of The Beatles, Wings and countless songs and projects from the last fifty-plus years returned to Australia tonight for his first tour in almost 25 years. Paul McCartney‘s show at NIB Stadium in Perth – ahead of five dates along the east coast – brought with it a jam packed, three hour setlist from across his catalogue – leaning heavily on Beatles material.

Opening with “A Hard Day’s Night”, the set jumped between Beatles and Wings songs, before settling predominantly on Beatles classics, while the pyrotechnic driven Wings hit “Live and Let Die” helped close the main set alongside “Hey Jude”. The Quarrymen song “In Spite of All the Danger” was also snuck into the set, as was the track he did with Kanye and Rhianna, “FourFiveSeconds”.

McCartney played no less than 40 songs across the night, including a Beatles-packed encore, which finished up, appropriately, with “The End”. He also invited the local police bagpipe band onstage for Wings’ “Mull of Kintyre”.
