Musicares set list

Paul, Joe Walsh, Dave Grohl
Paul McCartney was honored as MusiCares Man of the Year on Friday night at the Los Angeles Convention Center with a cocktail reception, silent auction, dinner and a star-studded tribute. Here's a tentative set list, assembled by Vintage Vinyl News.
  • Performance by Cirque du Soleil from Love
  • Magical Mystery Tour - Paul McCartney
  • Junior's Farm - Paul McCartney
  • Jet - Foo Fighters
  • Blackbird - Alicia Keys
  • No More Lonely Nights - Alison Krauss
  • Here, There and Everywhere - Tony Bennett
  • And I Love Her - Duane Eddy
  • Oh Darling - Norah Jones
  • Hey Jude - Katy Perry
  • I Saw Her Standing There - Neil Young & Crazy Horse
  • Fool On the Hill - Sergio Mendes
  • We Can Work It Out - Coldplay
  • Yesterday - James Taylor with Diana Krall
  • For No One - Diana Krall with James Taylor
  • I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter - Paul McCartney with Diana Krall & John Pizzarelli
  • My Valentine - Paul McCartney
  • Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End - Paul McCartney with Joe Walsh, Dave Grohl
Ringo Starr has been absent from the McCartney events recently, and has been represented by his wife and his brother-in-law. During his speech at the Walk of Fame ceremony, Paul excused his friend, saying he has felt a bit "under the weather". Let's hope Ringo is well enough to be a presenter during the Grammy Gala... If he is, all four Beatles will be represented there, as Paul will be performing and Yoko Ono is likely to be in the audience. The Harrison family will be represented by George's older sister Louise.

Does anyone know if there are plans to released the Musicares concert in either audio or video format?
