Paul McCartney live: Anaheim Stadium, Anaheim

Paul McCartney performed at the Anaheim Stadium in Anaheim, California, USA, on 17 April 1993.

It was the 16th night of the New World Tour, which lasted for 77 dates across 19 countries between February and December 1993. The show was seen by 48,560 fans.

Anaheim, Los Angeles – The New World Tour rocks Anaheim Stadium and more – the explosions on ‘Live And Let Die’ are so loud that the percussion waves set off fire and burglar alarms in homes 15 blocks from the stadium. On leaving the show, Capitol Records president Hale Milgrim announces to a reporter, ‘That was something else. I’m not kidding you, never have I seen better.’ Meanwhile, LA Times rock writer Robert Hilburn opines in his column: ‘McCartney came across as a masterful rock force delighted to be back on stage.’

McCartney’s band was Linda McCartney on vocals, keyboards, and percussion; Hamish Stuart on guitar, bass guitar, and vocals; Robbie McIntosh on guitar and vocals; Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens on keyboards and vocals; and Blair Cunningham on drums and percussion.
