Paul McCartney live at MGM Grand Garden, Las Vegas

Sir Paul McCartney gave a private concert at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, for delegates attending the Hewlett-Packard Discover Americas trade conference at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.

Prior to the concert, a reception for delegates at the HP conference was held at the MGM Grand. Although it was supposedly a private show, a small number of wristbands were made available to members of the public. Attendance at the conference was priced at $1,595-1,995, and the concert was watched by 9,500 people.

Hewlett-Packard has been working with McCartney to digitise his extensive music, photography, video and memorabilia collection. The Digital Library, which will contain more than a million items, will be mostly private for McCartney’s company MPL, but some elements will be made publicly available.

    While the HP Discover conference was at the Venetian, the concert was at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. We were all bused from the Venetian to the reception at the MGM Grand.
