Sir Paul McCartney gave a private concert at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, for delegates attending the Hewlett-Packard Discover Americas trade conference at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.
Prior to the concert, a reception for delegates at the HP conference was held at the MGM Grand. Although it was supposedly a private show, a small number of wristbands were made available to members of the public. Attendance at the conference was priced at $1,595-1,995, and the concert was watched by 9,500 people.
Hewlett-Packard has been working with McCartney to digitise his extensive music, photography, video and memorabilia collection. The Digital Library, which will contain more than a million items, will be mostly private for McCartney's company MPL, but some elements will be made publicly available.
