    Hope we get a full '72 concert to accompany Wild Life, instead of just the live versions of album songs.

    I think it was 2005. <digression> The '05 tour had an impressive setlist in hindsight with some stuff like TMP, Please Please Me, and For No One not really played by him solo before or since. I feel like I took it for granted! </digression>

    I didn't see him in 2005. I saw him on 9, October 2002 in St. Louis and he did too many people and dedicated it to the "Wings fans"

    Hmm interesting. I don't doubt your memory, though setlist.fm doesn't have it for that show. The first appearances of it on there are all listed as 2005, and I remember it being considered an exciting new addition during that tour. Do you recall him doing the full song, or perhaps an improptu snippet?

    Paul McCartney Setlist at Savvis Center, St. Louis
    I think you're mistaken, my friend. Too Many People was first performed on the 2005 tour.

    I saw him in 2005, and it was awesome. My first Paul concert. I, too, didn't appreciate the awesomeness of the setlist, but I was so new to the Beatles that I couldn't know how much of a treat it was to see him perform "Fixing A Hole" or "For No One."

    How I wish we could get a straight concert of that on blu-ray instead of The Space Within US. Yechhh.

    Even the "Best Buy Bonus" audio disc for that (a cd of some radio program) had the songs all hacked up. Grr.

    Do'h, yes of course, I should have known that, after all that money I spent on the big Ram cloth box to get this download!

    MsMaclen and Jinks are correct. I saw him in St. Louis that 2002 October show and in Chicago during the 2005 tour and TMP was only done in 2005. However, that October 9 show in St. Louis he about brought me to tears when he talked about John before doing Here Today and he led the audience in Happy Birthday to John. I get goose pimples when I think of the impact those two men had on the world and one was in the room singing Happy Birthday to the other.

    Sorry but I am not mistaken I was there. I did not see Paul on the US tour and that Wong was very much played that night

    His setlist also used to list (maybe it still does) an error for St. Louis 1993 Busch stadium. It listed him as playing I believe live and let die twice which I can assure he did not

    I'm a huge fan of Wings tracks and too many people is my favorite off ram. I would not make up the story and convince myself if it.

    Not saying you would make it up, but you know how Paul is slow to switch up setlist. He never played Too Many People until the 2005 tour.

    I know from past experience that you're a knowledgeable Beatle guy. So analyze this from an objective point of view...

    You know how relatively predictable Paul's setlists are, right? So you're saying that - for one night, and one night only, in 2002 in St. Louis - Paul decided to pull out Too Many People and play it with an intro that it was for "the Wings fans" (when it's actually from a "Paul & Linda McCartney" disc)? And then, in 2005 he did that again - with the exact same intro - for every show on the 2005 US tour? Note: I believe this was done as a medley with She Came In Through The Bathroom Window. Was that also done at this one show in 2002 and then ONLY done again on the US tour in 2005?

    Does that sound reasonable to someone as familiar with Paul's material as you are? When other knowledgeable fans are all insisting that couldn't have happened?

    Besides, Back In The U.S. cd is based on the spring leg of the 2002 tour and Back In The World is based on the fall leg of the tour. Too Many People doesn't appear on either.

    Did he play it after '05 then because I know I remember it and I did not see him on the US tour.

    I know I have this memory of hearing it once but I couldn't attend any '05 shows so I am lost if it was not the 2002 show. Unless he played it later

    I'm not sure if he played it after 2005. I don't mean to sound silly, but could you be remembering it from The Space Within Us DVD?

    Check out Marinucci's site with reviews from the 2002 show - no mention of it (back then, this was THE Beatle source on the 'net):

    I don't need to check, I believe you. I return the compliment that you are also a knowledgeable Beatle guy and since no one else remembers it I will stand corrected. But I am going to dig them my concert stubs to see if I caught an '05 show that I don't remember.

    It is odd, because he really didn't keep that song/medley in his set. I know he did it at LEAST once more (the Quebec concert for their 400th anniversary in 2008), but it doesn't appear to have been at other shows from that period (2007-2009).

    I distinctly remember all the "chatter" about that tune with the 2005 tour, because most everyone commented it was an odd song to introduce as "for the Wings fans".

    Too Many People was played on the 2005 tour

    He did also do it at the Quebec 400th Anniversary show in 2008

    And he did a version of "Bip Bop" too at that concert.

    I recall it like the back of my hand:
