Paul McCartney rocked nonstop for nearly three hours, playing hit after hit after hit, interspersed with wryly humorous recollections of famous friends and fellow musicians.

Opening the latest stop on his Freshen Up Tour with one of the Beatles’ early hits, “A Hard Day’s Night,” McCartney started off a bit sedately, standing still as he played his bass guitar. But he loosened up for the second song, the Wings hit “Junior’s Farm,” and was soon joking with the audience.
“I’m getting a feeling we’re gonna have a bit of a party here tonight,” McCartney said.

Fans were primed for a party, dancing, singing along, and holding up signs asking for an autograph or a song request.
The 38-song set list featured more than 20 Beatles tunes and about a half-dozen songs by Wings, including the 1973 hit “Live and Let Die”.

McCartney paid tribute to his late bandmates John Lennon and George Harrison, performing “Here Today,” which he described as “a conversation we didn’t get to have,” for Lennon, and adding a ukulele to Harrison’s masterpiece “Something.”
He promised fans a little bit from every stage of his career, and that included a tune from his pre-Beatles band the Quarrymen, “In Spite of All the Danger,” and several numbers from his 2018 album “Egypt Station,” including the anti-bullying song “Who Cares” and a rollicking “Come on to Me.”

It’s hard to choose just a few highlights from such a stellar evening of music, but an orchestral-flavored “Maybe I’m Amazed”; the stirring “Blackbird,” sung from a platform about 10 feet above the stage; and the all-out rave-up “Helter Skelter” were particularly memorable.
“This is just so cool,” he said early in the show. “I’m gonna take a minute for myself to just drink it all in.”
