Paul McCartney live: Estadio Monumental, Lima, Peru

Sir Paul McCartney has performed his first ever concert in Peru, before 50,000 fans at the Estadio Monumental in the country’s capital Lima.

The show, part of McCartney’s Up And Coming Tour, took place in Peru’s largest football stadium. McCartney played for almost three hours, drawing on songs from The Beatles’, Wings’ and his solo catalogue.

Here’s footage of his arrival in the city:

Prior to taking the stage, McCartney was presented with the Orden Del Sol by the Peruvian government’s First Minister. The award is the highest recognition in Peru. McCartney was also given the first ever Orden Del Arbol Del La Quina in recognition of his environmental work, and the National Library of Peru gave him the Medal of Honour of Peruvian Culture.

The Up And Coming Tour continues in Santiago, Chile on Wednesday, before two concerts in Rio de Janerio, Brazil, on 22 and 23 May 2011.
