Paul McCartney live: Party At The Palace, Buckingham Palace, London

Paul McCartney performed at Party At The Palace, Buckingham Palace, London, England, on 3 June 2002.

The event was to celebrate the golden jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, and was held in the grounds of the palace.

It was a new millennium the next time we were together again and what an occasion it was! Celebrating her Golden Jubilee, we got to rock out in her garden. As Her Majesty was on stage receiving applause at the end of the show I joked, ‘Well I suppose this will be happening next year then?’ to which she replied, ‘Not in my garden it won’t!’

McCartney performed ‘Her Majesty’ live for the first time, followed by ‘Blackbird’, ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’, ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)’, ‘The End’, ‘All You Need Is Love’, ‘Hey Jude’, and ‘I Saw Her Standing There’.

McCartney’s band was Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens (vocals, keyboards, guitar, percussion, harmonica), Brian Ray (vocals, guitar, bass), Rusty Anderson (vocals, guitar), and Abe Laboriel Jr (vocals, drums). This was Ray’s first live performance with the band.
