Video: Paul McCartney plays short set at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert

Paul McCartney didn't play his usual three-hour set at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert Monday evening at Buckingham Palace. It was more like a condensed greatest hits.

Can somebody explain why in the world he did not play "Her Majesty"????? If there was ever a time to pluck out that 30 second song, this was absolutely it.

This might even be worse than him not playing "When I'm 64" at any time during the 365 days that was he was actually 64 years old.

I was really hoping he would play "Hery Majesty" as well.

When I was watching the performance last night and he was singing "Let it Be", I couldn't help but think that while it's a very good singalong song, it's not quite as strong as "Hey Jude" for getting people riled up. So the reason he had to have done it is to sing about his Mum for the Queen. Can you imagine how proud Mary (with all of her upward aspirations for her boys) would've been to know Paul is knighted and that he closed the concert at her Diamond Jubilee?

I was thinking the same thing about "Her Majesty as well, Lucy. Her Majesty is a pretty nice girl and she's cool - thanks to her we have Sir Mick, Sir Eric and Sir Elton as well as Sir Paul!

I loved it when Paul sang "All My Loving." Made me think of how Paul opened with the Beatles on Ed Sullivan in 1964 with that beautiful, timeless song.

Yeah, and thanks to her there's no Sir Keith or Sir John... Oh, wait! Actually, I am grateful that Keith and John were not accepted into that club...

No-one expected him to play a full set, as he was the "headline" act at the Jubilee Concert which itself lasted 3 hours! That's just lazy journalism from this guy.

Well, he did play this at the Golden Jubilee in 2002, so maybe didn't want to risk detractors by playing it again this year. There were a lot of folk complaining about McCartney playing this concert anyway as he was the only artist to perform at both Jubilees.


I watched the live broadcast (from the comfort of my own home) and only tuned in late on in the concert to see McCartney's performance only, , as I wasn't interested in any of the other performers at all (save for Peter Kay introducing McCartney). McCartney did a good job, actually and it was nice to hear different songs being played, but then again you expect this from him being such a seasoned performer.

Yeah, i agree he kept it out because he did it 10 years ago....didn't want to be samesy I suppose. Also perhaps he thought it might be disrespectful or something?

I was at the concert and the crowd of THHHHOOOUUSANDS loved Paul. It was awesome to see and hear so many people into him when it wasn't just a concert where they had gone to see him. I mean OF COURSE at a Paul concert everyone is going wild because they have gone to see him. But this crowd had come to see others too so that was nice to hear Paul getting the mega love from the general public as well as loon fans.
