McCartney's 'Temporary' tune getting a regular spot in set list
"Temporary Secretary" in Birmingham

Once again, Paul McCartney included the song “Temporary Secretary” in his show May 27 at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, UK, according to an official setlist released May 28 by McCartney's press office. The song was originally added to his set list for his first show at the 02 Arena in London May 23. And according to unconfirmed reports, the song was again in the set list for the most recent show May 28 in Liverpool at the Echo Arena. Two other relatively recent additions to the setlist, “Hope for the Future,” and “Another Day,” were also performed back-to-back in Birmingham.

As usual, McCartney made some minor changes to the list of songs played from the previous show in London on May 24. “Can't Buy Me Love” replaced “Got to Get You Into My Life” and “I've Just Seen a Face” was sung instead of “I'm Looking Through You.” Unconfirmed reports say that among the changes made at today's show in Liverpool he put back “Got To Get You Into My Life” and “I'm Looking Through You” into the set.

Here's the full set list for Wednesday's show as released by Paul McCartney's press office May 28 (changes from the previous show in bold): “Eight Days a Week,” “Save Us, “Can't Buy Me Love” (change from “Got To Get You Into My Life”), “Listen to What the Man Said,” “Temporary Secretary,” “Let Me Roll It/Foxey Lady,” “Paperback Writer,” “My Valentine,” “Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five”, “The Long and Winding Road,” “Maybe I'm Amazed,” “I've Just Seen a Face” (change from “I'm Looking Through You”), “We Can Work It Out,” “Another Day,” “Hope for the Future,” “And I Love Her,” “Blackbird,” “Here Today,” “NEW,” “Queenie Eye,” “Lady Madonna,” “All Together Now,” “Lovely Rita,” “Eleanor Rigby,” “Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite,” “Something,” “Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da,” “Band on the Run,” “Back in the U.S.S.R.,” “Let It Be,” “Live and Let Die” and “Hey Jude.”
