Paul McCartney Once Made a Crucial Mistake Performing ‘Penny Lane’ at a Concert

Paul McCartney gave thousands of concerts throughout his career. Since he’s still human, he’s bound to make a few mistakes during these performances. With so many iconic songs from The Beatles, The Wings and his solo career, he was bound to mix up some lyrics or forget about them altogether. McCartney admitted to making a mistake performing “Penny Lane” and restarted the song.

Paul McCartney constantly changes his setlist during his tour. He only regularly plays a few songs, such as “Hey Jude” and “Live and Let Die”. When he decides to bring back a song, he has to perfect it once again, even after years of not playing it. “Penny Lane” is a Beatles classic, but not a claimed audience.
