The Paul McCartney concert July 17 at Boston's Fenway Park featured two very special guests, according to information released by McCartney's press office. The first was Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead, who joined Paul on “Hi Hi Hi” and “Helter Skelter” in the encore. And joining both McCartney and Weir on “Helter Skelter” was Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots, who sang backup on “Helter Skelter.” The extra songs were added to the set list after "Yesterday" along with the other usual songs. Ray Kelly of Mass. Live, who attended and reviewed the show, also told AXS.com, “Peter Wolf (of the J. Geils Band) was at the will call gate as were a slew of people who work for Nancy's company. They each got a tote bag with program, t-shirt and more.”


Except for the two added songs played with Weir and Gronkowski, the set list remained the same as it has for most of the tour.  The evening ended with fireworks above the baseball stadium.  According to a fan report on McCartney's message board, among the songs played at the pre-show soundcheck were “C Moon,” “Celebration,” “Midnight Special,” and “Lady Madonna.” The most recent show was July 19 at Hersheypark Stadium, Hershey, Pennsylvania. McCartney's One On One tour has 13 shows scheduled through October ending with two shows at Desert Trip in Indio, California on a bill with the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, the Who and Roger Waters. Tickets for all McCartney's North American shows are available here.
