Paul McCartney Kicks Off North American Leg of Freshen Up Tour

Sir Paul McCartney has officially landed in the States, baby! The former Beatles legend kicked off the North American leg of his Freshen Up Tour last night (May 23) at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.
While the tour is in support of his 2018 album release, Egypt Station, the whopping 38-song setlist actually only carries three tracks off the new album, the same ones he's offered on the other legs of the tour - "Who Cares," "Come On To Me," and "Fuh You."
The 76-year-old icon impressed the sold-out venue, which marked his first local show in the area since 2014, with a setlist that was stacked with Beatles and Wings hits. He of course performed his most staple solo cuts as well like "Maybe I'm Amazed" and "My Valentine."
The beginning of the set was a back and forth of Wings and Beatles cuts, kicking off with "A Hard Day's Night." The rest of the set boasted of tracks like "Can't Buy Me Love," "Let Me Roll It," "I've Just Seen a Face," "Blackbird," "Band on the Run," and even a Quarrymen song! (the group before they became the Beatles) - "In Spite of All the Danger."
