Paul McCartney took over US Bank Arena in Cincinnati July 10 as the One On One tour continued its swing through the States. Fan reports say he sounded great. “ A wonderful show with a more varied repertoire than he's given me in ages,” a fan wrote on his official message board. Olivia Anne Morris Fuchs, who also attended the show and sat in the second row, was equally enthusiastic in a phone interview. “Something that absolutely blew me away was when he started singing 'In Spite of All the Danger,' one of the first songs he ever did. It was really really powerful to me,” she said. “I loved hearing 'Can't Buy Me Love,' too.” She also said Paul's wife, Nancy Shevell, was in the audience.

“Paul's voice sounded much better than what is usual for him over the last few years for him,” said Andy Lynch in an email. “He was pretty much spot on from the beginning with very little waviness in voice last night. A resounding success." He also talked about who came up on stage. "The individuals invited on stage during the encore were one pregnant couple who Paul helped announce if it was a boy or girl. (It's a boy.) The other was a girl and her grandmother. If Paul signed the grandmother's cast, she would buy her granddaughter a car. The cast was signed.”

The set list, released by Paul McCartney's press office, was the same as has been for most of the tour: “A Hard Day’s Night,” “Save Us,” “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Letting Go,” “Temporary Secretary,”. “Let Me Roll It,” “I’ve Got A Feeling,” “My Valentine,” “Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five,” “Here, There and Everywhere,” “Maybe I’m Amazed,” “We Can Work It Out,” “In Spite Of All The Danger,” “You Won’t See Me,” “Love Me Do,” “And I Love Her.” “Blackbird,” “Here Today,” “Queenie Eye,” “NEW,” “Fool On The Hill” and “Lady Madonna.”

There was also “FourFive Seconds,” “Eleanor Rigby,” “Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite,” “Something,” “Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da,” “Band On The Run,” “Back In The USSR,” “Let It Be,” “Live and Let Die,” “Hey Jude,” Encore:“Yesterday,” “Hi Hi HI,” “Birthday,” “Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End.”

Lynch said the soundcheck featured a jam, then “Matchbox,” “Let 'Em In,” “C Moon,” some synthesizer improvisation, “Lady Madonna,” “Ram On,” “One After 909,” “Mrs. Vandebilt,” “Midnight Special,” “Every Night” and “San Francisco Bay Blues.”

The next show is July 12 at Citizen's Bank Park in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, then it's on to Fenway Park on July 17. Tickets for those and all North American shows are available here.
