Paul McCartney live: Alamodome, San Antonio

Paul McCartney performed at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, USA, on 29 May 1993.

It was the 29th night of the New World Tour, which lasted for 77 dates across 19 countries between February and December 1993. The show was seen by 46,716 fans.

The performance of ‘My Love’ from this show appears on the 1993 live album Paul Is Live.

San Antonio – The newly-built Alamodome is christened by Paul and Band performing to 47,000 fans. All tickets for this show are sold out within two hours. Paul is presented with the keys to the city by Mayor Nelson Wolfe and during the show the band is entertained by the sight of a buxom young lady in the third row who climbs on her boyfriend’s shoulders, strips to her bra and then hurls the bra onto the stage as she jiggles to the songs, giving a new meaning to the ‘Hey Jude’ line ‘the movement you need is on your shoulder’.
