Paul McCartney live: Hard Rock Calling Festival

Paul McCartney closed the Hard Rock Calling festival in London’s Hyde Park with an outdoor concert on 27 June 2010.

It was the 12th concert of the Up And Coming Tour, which lasted for 38 dates between March 2010 and June 2011. This show was seen by 50,000 fans.

An edited version of the concert was also streamed on YouTube’s Born HIV Free channel. The campaign, fronted by Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, supports the worldwide fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

During the concert McCartney turned down a request on a sign held by a fan asking for an autograph. “We’ve got one here that says, ‘Sign my butt and I’ll get it tattooed’,” he said. “The answer to that is No.”

The setlist was identical to McCartney’s show at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium on the previous night, including a version of 1971’s ‘Ram On’.

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).
