Paul McCartney live: Consol Energy Center, Pittsburgh

Paul McCartney performed at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, on 18 August 2010.

It was the 24th concert of the Up And Coming Tour, which lasted for 38 dates between March 2010 and June 2011, and the first of two consecutive nights in Pittsburgh.

Construction of the venue was completed on 1 August 2010, and McCartney was the opening performance. Demand for tickets was so great that the concert sold out within five minutes, leading to a second show being scheduled.

Here’s the performance of ‘Venus And Mars’/‘Rock Show’ and ‘Jet’ from the show:

During the show he signed the shoulder of a fan, Alvita Akiboh. She had held up a sign saying “Please sign my blackbird tattoo” and was brought onto the stage before the final performance of ‘Sgt Pepper (Reprise)’/‘The End’. Alvita had a tattoo made of the signature after the concert.

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).

McCartney returned to the Consol Energy Center on 7 July 2014 during the Out There Tour.
