Set List: Paul McCartney Opens American Tour in Miami

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

Paul McCartney performed in Miami on Friday night and the set list gives Australian fans a glimpse of what to expect in December.

The 39 song set list features more than half Beatles. 24 songs by The Beatles cover the show book-ended by A Hard Day’s Night at the start and The End at the end.

From his early days Paul goes back to pre-Beatles and his days with The Quarrymen with In Spite Of All The Danger. The song is the only song credited to Paul McCartney and George Harrison. It was originally recorded on July 12, 1958, three days before the death of John Lennon’s mother Julia. The song was officially released for the first time in 1995 as part of The Beatles Anthology.

The Quarryment were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, John Lowe and Colin Hanton. Drummer John Lowe is now 75 years old. In 2014 he appeared on the BBC’s Would I Life To You.

Drummer Colin Hanton is now 78. He left The Quarrymen after an argument on January 1, 1959. Hanton and Lowe revived The Quarrymen in 1997 and occasionally still do gigs.
