Paul McCartney live: Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome, Minneapolis

Paul McCartney performed at the Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, on 23 May 1993.

It was the 27th night of the New World Tour, which lasted for 77 dates across 19 countries between February and December 1993. The show was seen by 40,287 fans.

During a day off in Minneapolis around this time, McCartney wrote the song ‘If You Wanna’, which appeared on his 1997 album Flaming Pie.

We had a day off in Minneapolis when we were on tour. Linda was going off to do something and I stayed behind in the room and wrote a song on guitar. […] This is the kind of song you might hear when you’re driving across the desert in America, Easy Rider country.
