How Many Beatles Songs Does Paul McCartney Do Live? Expect These On The Australian Tour

For those who haven’t been to a Paul McCartney show before and wondering how many Beatles songs he does, based on his most recent setlist from Glastonbury in 2022, the answer is 23.

To place that into perspective, when The Beatles performed in Australia in 1964, they performed 10 songs. Sir Paul has more than twice the number of Beatles songs in his solo set than The Beatles had.

Even at the last concert appearance by The Beatles in the 1966 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, The Beatles performed 11 songs, still less than half the current McCartney setlist.

The Beatles songs from the 2022 show were:

In Spite of All the Danger (1958 The Quarrymen song released on The Beatles Anthology, 1995)
Love Me Do (from Please Please Me, 1963)
I Saw Her Standing There (from Please Please Me, 1963)
I Wanna Be Your Man (from With The Beatles, 1963)
Can’t Buy Me Love (from The Beatles, A Hard Day’s Night, 1964)
I’ve Just Seen A Face (from Help, 1965)
Got to Get You Into My Life (from The Beatles, Revolver, 1966)
Getting Better (from The Beatles, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, 1967)
Lady Madonna (The Beatles single 1968)
Blackbird (from The Beatles, The Beatles, 1968)
Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (from The Beatles, The Beatles, 1968)
Hey Jude (The Beatles single 1968)
Helter Skelter (from The Beatles, The Beatles, 1968)
Golden Slumbers (from The Beatles, Abbey Road, 1969)

I could go to a James Taylor show just for the stories. The man is a part of music history and is still around to tell the tales of how it all began. Like, for instance, being the first artist signed to Apple Records. James “auditioned” for Apple with his song ‘Something In The Way She Moves’. "Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
