Paul McCartney conducted a “wedding” and played a concert Tuesday night at US Airways Center in Phoenix, Ariz. During the encore, McCartney responded to a sign that said, “You're ordained. We're engaged. Please marry us tonight.”

McCartney brought the fans onstage and then told them, "Not sure this will hold up in court” and said to the “groom,” “You may kiss the bride.” The couple's kiss was shown on the venue's screen.

As has been the case in shows along this stretch of the tour, setlist changes from the last show have been minimal. The only change from Sunday's Dodger Stadium show was that “Get Back” replaced “I Saw Her Standing There” in the encore.

The Out There tour's next stop is the long-awaited Farewell to Candlestick show Thursday in San Francisco, then the tour takes a lengthy break before beginning a new series of shows in late September and October. The return show will take place Sept. 28 at Petco Park in San Diego. Tickets are available here.

Here's the complete official set list for this show as reported by Paul McCartney's press office: (with changes from Dodger Stadium in bold): “Eight Days a Week,” “Save Us,” “All My Loving,” “Listen to What the Man Said,” “Let Me Roll It,” “Paperback Writer,” “My Valentine,” “Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five,” “The Long and Winding Road,” “Maybe I'm Amazed,” “I've Just Seen a Face,” “We Can Work It Out,” “Another Day,” “And I Love Her.”

Next, there was “Blackbird,” “Here Today,” “NEW,” “Queenie Eye,” “Lady Madonna,” “All Together Now,” “Lovely Rita,” “Everybody Out There,” “Eleanor Rigby,” and “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite.”

Finally, there was “Something,” “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da,” “Band on the Run,” “Back in the U.S.S.R.,” “Let It Be,” “Live and Let Die,” “Hey Jude.” Encore: “Day Tripper,” “Hi Hi Hi,” “Get Back” (replaced “I Saw Her Standing There”).
