Paul McCartney live: Riverfront Stadium, Cincinnati

Paul McCartney performed at the Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, on 5 May 1993.

It was the 23rd night of the New World Tour, which lasted for 77 dates across 19 countries between February and December 1993. The show was seen by 38,000 fans.

Cincinnati – Before the concert at the Riverfront Stadium, Paul gives a radio interview to Q102 expressing his views on why all people need to work to save the environment. He concludes, ‘Of all the millions and millions of stars and planets whizzing around in the sky above us, this planet Earth is the only one we’ve got. It’s a fine planet and we have to take care of it.’ After the interview is broadcast, Q102 comments, ‘You know the problem with that guy? There’s only one problem, that he isn’t American. Because if he was born in the United States we’d FORCE him to run for President.’ Following the show, the Cincinnati Enquirer comments in an editorial ‘He’s getting sexier with age’.
