Paul McCartney played a charity concert May 13 featuring songs of the Beatles and his own solo career at New York's Jacob Javits Center to benefit the Robin Hood Center, a favorite charity of McCartney's. According to reports, attendees included John McEnroe, Oprah Winfrey and Sting.
McCartney helped organize and headline the Concert for New York City in 2001, which also helped the Robin Hood Foundation raise more than $36 million to provide financial assistance to the families of victims who lost their lives in the 9/11 terror attacks in New York, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania. In 2012, he headlined the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief, another concert benefit for the foundation.
The Javits Center show set list, though shorter than usual, included the regular mixture of McCartney and Beatles songs with several tunes moved around from where they had been the previous show. The set included “Another Girl,” which he recently added on to his live show for the first time and only one encore instead of the usual two.
Here's the official set list as released by Paul McCartney's press office: “Jet,” “Got To Get You Into My Life,” “Save Us,” “All My Loving,” “Let Me Roll It,” “Paperback Writer,” “My Valentine,” “Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five,” “The Long and Winding Road,” “Maybe I'm Amazed,” “I've Just Seen a Face,” “We Can Work It Out,” “Another Day,” “And I Love Her,” “Blackbird,” “Here Today,” “NEW,” “Lady Madonna,” Can't Buy Me Love,” “Eleanor Rigby,” “Something,” “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da,” “Band on the Run,” “Let It Be,” “Hey Jude.” Encore: “Another Girl,” “Birthday,” “Golden Slumbers”/“Carry That Weight”/“The End.”
