Paul McCartney kicked off his North American Out There tour dates on Saturday and Sunday (May 18th and 19th) in Orlando, Florida at Amway Center. The setlist was pretty much the same as his previous three stadium shows in Brazil -- with several Beatles classics receiving their live debut on the new tour -- "Eight Days A Week," "All Together Now," "Your Mother Should Know," "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite!," and "Lovely Rita." Three solo and Wings rarities have also returned after several decades -- "Another Day," "Listen To What The Man Said," and "Hi, Hi, Hi." For the second show in Orlando, McCartney replaced his 1993 hit "Hope Of Deliverance" with the "Fab Four" Help! favorite "I've Just Seen A Face" and switching "Get Back" for "I Saw Her Standing There."

Unlike many of his peers who've been playing the same songs on the road for decades, McCartney, who's only begun playing most of his Beatles hits in his late-40's, finds something still incredibly fresh about playing the group's songs live: "'Why does this feel so fresh?' Y'know, I haven't done it in a long time. But I realized the only time we ever did it was when we recorded it -- the day we recorded it. That was it, as far as the Beatles were concerned, we'd given up touring then. So, we never got to that ever again. I never got to do 'Hey Jude' live. And those songs are really good live. They need to be live."
