The set list includes Wilbury songs such as: End Of The Line, Handle With Care, The Devil’s Been Busy, Last Night, Tweeter And The Monkey Man, She’s My Baby, Heading For The Light……………. And choice cuts such as: Pretty Woman, You’ve Got It (Roy Orbison), Mr Blue Sky, Evil Woman (Jeff Lynne’s ELO), I Won’t Back Down, Running Down A Dream (Tom Petty), Mr Tambourine Man, Make You Feel My Love (Bob Dylan), What Is Life, Here Come’s The Sun (George Harrison)………… and many more.
