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 collection of the London performance on the last day of the British tour with only three performances at the end of the 2018 FRESHEN UP TOUR. From the beginning, it was announced that special guests are scheduled to appear, and among the fans was talking about who will appear, it was Ringo Star and Ron Wood. Two people were introduced by encore and they played “Get Back” together. If you listen to this work you will understand, but Ronnie is in charge of the lead, you can see clearly that the sound of one note of the guitar is just the sound of Stones taste. And it is probably the first time in a while, there was a happening that apple flying at the break part on the way. Paul who instantly saw the situation saw the face of the apple and re-counted the performance even though the song “2, 3, 4!” Was on track.

More attention is its sound quality. It is the best thing you can think of as an audience recording, close to the performance, close to the sound as if Paul is singing in front of me, no annoying audience around, no claps or clapping, clear and beautiful It is as perfect as a 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.

In addition, as a bonus track, two songs not played in the London performance from Glasgow performance on December 14, 2018 hit the mid-day of three concerts in the UK, one concert before the day of the day, as well as a sound board sound source for the day, as a bonus track Wonderful Christmastime “is recorded. The two songs are “Can not Buy Me Love” and “We Can Work It Out”, Paul is a song playing daily. This Glasgow performance is also the first appearance sound source of super high sound quality that has not been circulated in the Izuko, it is a complete exclusive sound source of this work.

UK tour with only three performances that concludes the end of 2018. On the final day of it, the performance of London was completely recorded with high sound quality. It is a special London performance that became the best Christmas present for co-starring Ringo Star and Ron Wood. It is a monopoly sound source of super high sound quality that first appeared in this work, has not been circulated anywhere. 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最終日ロンドン公演を完全収録している。当初より特別ゲストが出演予定であるとアナウンスされており、誰が登場するのかファンの間で話題となっていたが、それはリンゴ・スターとロン・ウッドの二人であった。アンコールで二人が紹介され一緒に「Get Back」を演奏したのである。本作を聴いてもらえればわかるが、ロニーがリードを担当しており、ギターの一音一音がまさにストーンズ・テイストの音色であることがはっきりと伺える。そして久しぶりの演奏なのだろう、途中のブレイク部分でリンゴがフライングしてしまうハプニングがあった。状況を瞬時に察したポールが、リンゴの顔を見て「2、3、4!」と曲中にも関わらずカウントを入れ直し演奏を軌道修正している。


またボーナストラックとして、短いながら当日のサウンドボード音源、さらにこの日のひとつ前のコンサート、英国3公演の中日に当たる2018年12月14日グラスゴー公演より、ロンドン公演で演奏されなかった2曲プラス「Wonderful Christmastime」を収録している。その2曲とは「Can’t Buy Me Love」と「We Can Work It Out」で、ポールは日替わりで演奏している曲である。このグラスゴー公演もまた、いずこにも出回っていない超高音質の初登場音源で、本作の完全独占音源である。
