Sir Paul McCartney dropped by Minneapolis on Saturday for a stop on his Out There tour, and everyone within Target Field that night witnessed what could be considered a concert that may very well have been pulled straight from a fan’s wildest dream. The weather was perfect, free of humidity or rain, and the ever-present Minneapolis skyline provided a serene backdrop for the legendary performance taking place.
The Liverpudlian performed a monster three-hour set, which included two encores, as energetically as ever, hopping between his signature bass guitar, a piano, acoustic and electric guitars, and a ukulele. The setlist contained a multitude of Beatles classics, including Paperback Writer, We Can Work It Out, Lady Madonna, Blackbird, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, and Let It Be, as well as several numbers from Wings and McCartney’s solo career, such as Listen To What The Man Said, Band On The Run, Maybe I’m Amazed, and Live and Let Die. Sir Paul even played a few songs off of his most recent release, New, including Save Us, New, and Queenie Eye.
