Paul in Rotterdam 24-3-2012 HD

McCartney in Rotterdam

Ahoy Rotterdam

As the first stop on his "On the Run" world tour, Paul McCartney appeared at Ahoy Rotterdam located in, you guessed it, Rotterdam. This was a very nice production throughout. Paul's lead guitarist rocks and the concert sounds perfect. Paul can still hit those notes, so reports of the demise of his voice are premature.

This wasn't the first time that Paul had played Ahoy Rotterdam. Wings, for instance, played the venue on 25 March 1976. Paul also played Ahoy Rotterdam as a solo act in 2009 on his Good Evening Europe tour. In the 2012 concert, Paul and his band (never forget it's not just him out there!) spent three full hours onstage and gave two encores. Notable changes to the setlist included the return of Venus and Mars/Rock Show and "My Valentine" from "Kisses on the Bottom."

The lineup: Paul 'Wix' Wickens (vocals, keyboards, guitar, percussion, harmonica), Brian Ray (vocals, guitar, bass), Rusty Anderson (vocals, guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (vocals, drums). This is Paul's standard lineup, and in fact is the band he has worked with the longest in his entire career.
