The Back in the World Tour was a European concert tour by Paul McCartney in 2003.

Touring[edit]

After the first 6 dates (1 in Paris, 2 in Barcelona, 2 in Antwerp & 1 in Sheffield), Paul caught a flu and had to cancel the second Sheffield date, promising to reschedule the date later on the tour; the flu affected the set list directly, as "Coming Up", "Driving Rain" & "Maybe I'm Amazed" were dropped out in favor of "Things We Said Today", "I've Just Seen a Face" & "Two of Us"; it was there, in the first Manchester date that he added the "Foxy Lady" ending to "Let Me Roll It". However, after 5 more dates (2 in Manchester, 2 in Birmingham and 1 in London), "Maybe I'm Amazed" was brought back for the second London date, replacing "Things We Said Today", although the other replacing songs remained for the rest of the tour.

The Moscow concert was documented in the 2005 Paul McCartney in Red Square DVD.[1][2][3][4][5]
