Paul McCartney's July 8 concert at Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin marked the One On One tour's long-awaited return to the States. McCartney has performed in Europe since the end of May and all through June. In the show's usual spot where fans come on stage, a father dressed in a Sgt. Pepper outfit and his daughter were invited to come up. The father carried a sign saying, “Hug my daughter. She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah."

"You know, dads can be so embarrassing," McCartney told the crowd, then the three did a group hug before McCartney sang “Birthday.”

The set list for the show remained the same as has been the general full set list for the tour: Here's the official list of songs from the show as released by Paul McCartney's press office: “A Hard Day’s Night,” “Save Us,” “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Letting Go,” “Temporary Secretary,” “Let Me Roll It,” “I’ve Got A Feeling,” “My Valentine,” “Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five,” “Here, There and Everywhere,” “Maybe I’m Amazed,” “We Can Work It Out,” “In Spite Of All The Danger,” “You Won’t See Me,” “Love Me Do,” “And I Love Her,” “Blackbird,” “Here Today,” “Queenie Eye,” “NEW,” “Fool On The Hill” and “Lady Madonna.”

Also, there was “FourFive Seconds,” “Eleanor Rigby,” “Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite,” “Something,” “Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da,” “Band On The Run,” “Back In The USSR,” “Let It Be,” “Live and Let Die,” “Hey Jude,” Encore:“Yesterday,” “Hi Hi Hi,” “Birthday,” “Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End.”

An unconfirmed fan report said he played “Alligator” during the pre-show sound check.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel called the show “electrifying.” A fan report on the McCartney message board said “Paul seemed affected a bit by the humidity and maybe the heat from the stage lights at the start, but got stronger as the show went on.”

At his final show in Europe on June 30 at Rock Werchter in Werchter, Belgium, the set list for the show was a little shorter than usual, omitting “Temporary Secretary,” “Queenie Eye” and “Yesterday,” but including all the others he played in Milwaukee. According to a fan report on the McCartney message board, he had a great time and the crowd was quite enthusiastic.
