Paul McCartney live: Busch Stadium, St Louis

Paul McCartney performed at Busch Stadium in St Louis, Missouri, USA, on 29 April 1993.

It was the 21st night of the New World Tour, which lasted for 77 dates across 19 countries between February and December 1993. The show was seen by 43,866 fans.

St Louis – As Paul arrives, so does official news from Broadcast Music Inc that ‘Yesterday’ has now had its six millionth airplay in the USA – a new world record as the most-played song ever. Meanwhile, Chuck Berry arrives backstage pre-show to rap with Paul. Later, during the concert at the Busch Memorial Stadium, Paul dedicates ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ to Berry, with this introduction: ‘There’s someone here in the audience tonight who I’ve been a big fan of for too many years to mention. Give a big hand to a man from around these parts, Mr Chuck Berry – he’s the greatest. Love you Chuck.’
