The two Fireman songs, "Highway" and "Sing The Changes" made their live debut with this concert. "Honey Hush" was a surprise from the 1999 concerts, and "Paperback Writer" reappeared from the 1993 set lists.

Highway made it's live debut at this concert.

The Coachella gig was webcast by AT&T, although for many, the webstream stopped after "Here Today".
The crowd at Coachella was friendly, and Paul seemed to get a great reception. The other acts that were appearing at other stages at the same time as Paul, attracted minor audiences. Around 45 000 elected to see Paul, and most of them had to look at the giant screens on both sides of the stage to get a good view. During "Got To Get You Into My Life", film footage from "The Beatles:Rockband" appeared to be shown on the backdrop, according to at least one fan.
