    They played 3 nights at the Spectrum on that tour. One thing I agree with Eddie Trunk about that era of VH, if Roth would talk less between songs they could play at least two more songs.....maybe more.

    I agree. I was fortunate to see them on the Clockwork Angels tour and R40. Both shows happened to be in Canada, for whatever that is worth. Geddy did sound better for the latter R40 show. I recall an article that touched on Geddy working with a voice coach and he claimed positive results. I would agree but not top notch. The Clockwork Angels recorded performance was difficult to listen to.

    Went to see Paul McCartney in London last night, and was in for a big treat. Ringo was spotted in the crowd shortly before Paul hit the stage, all the phone cameras were going off and people speculated about him playing, but most thought it was unlikely. Cue the encore, Wonderful Christmastime was played with a children’s choir (A surprise in itself) and then he introduced Ronnie Wood, crowd went crazy and then a riser with a Ludwig kit was rolled out to near centre stage (rental kit I believe, I think I spotted barcode stickers near the tom mount so I assume it was from John Henry’s or Bell Percussion). Ringo was introduced and predictably the audience went mad, people couldn’t believe it, and I saw a few crying. They played Get Back as the video shows and then left the stage to rapturous applause. Before Paul played Sgt Pepper (Reprise) and Golden Slumbers/Carry that weight/The End.

    Truly a dream for me, saw Paul last in Cardiff in 2010 (Up and Coming tour) and Ringo and the all Starr Band at the Liverpool empire in 2011. Never thought I’d get the chance to see them together (usually only happens in the states), and I feel incredibly lucky to have witnessed it. I’ll never see anything that good again in my lifetime. The concert highlight.

    Congrats! That's a heck of a show even without Ronnie and Ringo.

    Thanks guys, indeed it was, Paul played for well over 3 hours, sheer bliss. Still on a massive high. His last show of the year, with plenty of surprises to boot.

    3hrs? Wow!

    Don’t get me wrong, I have a ton of respect for Paul to play that much, but I don’t think I could make it through an entire show. I’d probably get bored at some point.

    Same here. I might get bored with 3 hours of any concert.

    My wife and I have seen him three times and the concerts are paced very well, but we're massive Beatles fans so we're biased.
