Paul McCartney live: Winnipeg Stadium, Winnipeg

Paul McCartney performed at the Winnipeg Stadium in Winnipeg, Canada, on 21 May 1993.

It was the 26th night of the New World Tour, which lasted for 77 dates across 19 countries between February and December 1993. The show was seen by 37,430 fans.

Winnipeg – The second half of the North American leg opens at the Winnipeg Stadium playing to 41,000 fans, smashing a state record set 10 years earlier by David Bowie’s Serious Moonlight Tour. For the first time ever in North America, ‘Mull Of Kintyre’ is performed – on account of all the expatriate British in the audience – with the Heatherbelles Ladies Pipe Band providing the blow. The Winnipeg Free Press comments ‘He came, he sang, he conquered’.
