Reconciled with his Beatles past, the Briton offered over two and a half hours of good vibes, 40 songs and six decades of experience from the early years of the 'Fab Four' to 'FourFiveSeconds,' a recent collaboration with Rihanna and Kanye West.

McCartney did not forget his time with his band Wings or the mythical years with The Beatles, the backbone of this 'One on One' tour, in which he played two dozen hits from 'Love me do' to 'Hey Jude', one of the most recorded songs in history.

A nearly full Vicente Calderon stadium hosted a party that was even a rarer occasion in Madrid than celebrating a European Cup: Paul McCartney's visit, twelve years after his last gig in Spain.

Especially emotional were his songs in memory for those who are no longer alive such as George Harrison ('Something') or his ex-wife Linda, to who he dedicated 'Maybe I'm Amazed' from his first solo album 'McCartney' when she helped him out of depression and alcoholism after the Beatles' split.

"I wrote this song thinking about my friend John," McCartney said before playing "Here Today", a song he composed two years after the death of John Lennon, which he performed on his own on a very high platform with screens showing a waterfall, while stressing the words 'I love you.'

'Can't buy me love', 'We can work it out,' 'Blackbird,' 'Lady Madonna', 'Band on the run', 'Being for the benefit of Mr. Kite', 'Ob-La-Di , Ob-La-Da'... One by one all those great songs were played until reaching the encores which included songs that could not be left out like 'Yesterday'.
