Paul McCartney kicked off his One on One tour in Fresno, California Wednesday night with a song he hasn’t done since his Beatles days.
Macca and his band started the 38 song set with “A Hard Day’s Night,” which he last played live in 1965. The set also included “Love Me Do,” with many reports claiming that it was his first time doing it as a solo artist. But that’s not the case — he performed it in a medley with “P.S. I Love You” during his 1989-1990 world tour, and even released it as the B-side of a live single.
Other songs he hasn’t done in a while included “The Fool on the Hill” (first time in 13 years) and “You Won’t See Me,” (first time in 12 years). The One on One tour continues Friday in Portland.
