Paul McCartney entered in 2018 and is doing a gig warm up in Liverpool and London in June and July. And on September 7, 2018 we held a concert at the special stage of Grand Central Station in New York. And finally, I revised the previous ONE ON ON TOUR and announced that I will go on a new tour again entitled FRESHEN UP TOUR. Starting in Canada in September 2018, this tour was a large scale around Europe, Japan and the United States including the festival appearance and was announced quickly until the 2019 schedule.

One characteristic of this FRESHEN UP TOUR is the addition of new songs to the repertoire from the new album “EGYPT STATION”. Moreover, he plays two songs “Who Cares” and “Come On To Me” in the beginning of the concert, and “Fuh You” in the middle. Both are thought to be a musical piece that is kept in mind that it plays with a concert, becoming an important accent of the stage composition. Also, the first premiere on this tour is “From Me To You”. It is one of the representative songs of the extremely early Beatles, and has been picked up as an acoustic corner. In addition, if you see only the songs in the set list, there is no fresh selection of songs contrary to the tour title, and although the songs that have been played are arranged side by side, if you mention the features of this tour, arrange rather than songs It should be noted.

The major difference from the conventional pole stage is the addition of a brass section. Basically except for Wings from the 1970s, band members and members did not join the performance on the pole stage basically. Of course there was no schedule for the Bug · Pipe Orchestra to appear, or the guests to play. However, there are no musicians who took part in the tour and participated every night as a concert performance. For the first time, the brass section has joined the band. The arrange also makes use of it daringly in that the sound substituting for the keyboard which Wix plays until then is played with real instruments.

This work is a complete record of Liverpool performance on the first day of British tour with only three performances at the final place of FRESHEN UP TOUR in 2018. It is well known to fans that Paul’s local concerts in Liverpool are wrapped in a special atmosphere, including 1990, 2003, 2008 and others. Most importantly it is the last three performances in 2018. Paul is known for taking pictures and recordings, Liverpool’s concert, the last day of the tour, in those cases it is known to do the show with full power without leaving any extra power. Also in Liverpool in 2018, while Paul relatives and old acquaintance are visiting a large number of audience seats, Paul has added MC for a long time as much as usual, and a warm atmosphere different from the other performances I am wrapping the whole venue. It was introduced that Colin Hunton who was a member of a qualimen is in the audience, and sing “In Spite Of All Danger” in front of himself.

And as soon as Christmas is coming, we showed “Wonderful Christmastime” for the first time on this tour with the children’s choir backing. “I Saw Her Standing There” is a wonderful stage that concludes the year 2018, such as having fans to stage on stage and sing. Moreover, this work completely collects sound checks performed before the concert on the day. In the sound check of this day, it is rare that Paul is singing lyrics to “Celebration” which is usually played as a piano instrument. Also on the regular stage I’ve also noticed that I have played “I Do not Know” of a new album that I have never played.

More attention is its sound quality. It is the best thing that can be thought of as an audience recording, close range feeling of the performance, closeness of sound as if Paul is singing in front of me, no troubling audience in the surroundings, little clapping or clapping, clear It is a perfection like a beautiful superb live album. Of course, this is the first appearance in this work, it is a complete monopoly sound source of super high sound quality that has not been circulated even in this work which can only be heard in this work.

UK tour with only three performances that concludes the end of 2018. On its first day Paul ‘s birthplace Liverpool performance, sound check, concert and complete recording with high sound quality. It’s such a wonderful concert that will be filled with happiness and fulfillment when you finish listening, this year’s number one performance. Permanent preservation of a beautiful picture / disk specification A tightly pressed press. Japanese style attaching.

■児童コーラス隊と共に「Wonderful Christmastime」を演奏


ポール・マッカートニーは2018年に入り、6月と7月にリバプールとロンドンでウォーム・アップ的にギグを行なっている。そして2018年9月7日にはニューヨークのグランド・セントラル駅の特設ステージにおいてコンサートを行なった。そしていよいよ、前回のONE ON ONE TOURを改め、FRESHEN UP TOURと題して再び新たなツアーに出る事を発表したのである。このツアーは2018年9月カナダを皮切りに、フェスティバル出演を含む欧州や日本、そしてアメリカをまわる大規模なもので、2019年のスケジュールまで矢継ぎ早に発表された。

このFRESHEN UP TOURにおける特徴として、ニューアルバム『EGYPT STATION』から新曲をレパートリーに加えている点が挙げられる。しかもコンサート序盤に「Who Cares」「Come On To Me」の2曲、そして中盤に「Fuh You」を演奏している。いずれもコンサートで演奏する事を念頭に置いた楽曲と思われ、ステージ構成の重要なアクセントとなっている。またこのツアーで初演となるのが「From Me To You」である。極初期のビートルズの代表曲のひとつであり、アコースティック・コーナーの1曲として採り上げられている。その他、セットリストの曲目だけ見ると、ツアータイトルに反しフレッシュな選曲はなく、これまでも演奏されてきた曲目が並んでいるものの、このツアーの特徴を挙げるとしたら、曲目よりもむしろ、アレンジに着目すべきであろう。


本作は、この2018年FRESHEN UP TOURの最終地、3公演のみの英国ツアーの初日リバプール公演を完全収録している。ポールが地元リバプールで行なうコンサートは、1990年や2003年、2008年などを筆頭として、いずれも特別な雰囲気に包まれたものである事はファンにとっては周知のことであろう。なにより2018年最後の3公演である。ポールは撮影や録音が入っている時、そしてリバプールのコンサート、ツアーの最終日、これらの場合は特に余力を残すことなく全力でショウを行なうことで知られている。この2018年のリバプール公演においても、親戚縁者や古い知己が多数客席を訪れている中で、ポールはいつもにも増して饒舌に長くMCを入れており、他の公演地とは異なる暖かい雰囲気が会場全体を包んでいる。 なにせクオリーメンのメンバーだったコリン・ハントンが客席にいることが紹介され、その本人の前で「In Spite Of All Danger」を歌うのである。

そしてクリスマス間近ということで、児童合唱隊をバックに「Wonderful Christmastime」をこのツアーで初披露。「I Saw Her Standing There」ではファンをステージに登壇させて歌わせるなど、2018年を締めくくる素晴らしいステージとなっている。また本作は、当日コンサート前に行なわれたサウンドチェックも完全収録している。 この日のサウンドチェックにおいては通常はピアノのインストとして演奏される「Celebration」にポールが歌詞をつけて歌っているのが珍しい。また通常ステージでは一度も演奏したことがないニューアルバムの「I Don’t Know」を演奏しているのも目を引く。
