Steve Jennings/Getty ImagesPaul McCartney kicked off his 2016 One on One tour last night in historic fashion at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California, by playing a tune he hadn’t performed live in more than 50 years. Rolling Stone reports that McCartney began his show with the early Beatles hit “A Hard Day’s Night,” a song that Sir Paul had never played live as a solo artist and that was last performed by the Fab Four in August 1965.

You can check out a fan-shot video of McCartney singing “A Hard Day’s Night” in Fresno on YouTube.

The show also featured McCartney’s first post-Beatles performance of the band’s debut single, “Love Me Do,” which the Fab Four last played in concert in October 1963. Other tunes the rock legend dusted off for the show included “In Spite of All the Danger,” a song by his pre-Beatles group The Quarrymen that he hadn’t performed since 2005; “The Fool on the Hill,” which he hadn’t played since 2003; and “You Won’t See Me,” which he last performed in 2004.

In addition, Macca’s marathon 38-song set featured a rendition of his hit 2015 collaboration Kanye West and Rihanna, “FourFiveSeconds.”

Check out the full set list from the Fresno show at McCartney’s One on One tour stops next at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon, on Friday.
