Paul McCartney live: Estadio Monumental, Lima

Paul McCartney performed at the Estadio Monumental in Lima, Peru, on 9 May 2011.

It was the 34th 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.

The show 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.

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).
