Sir Paul McCartney performed at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, in the last show of his On The Run tour in 2011.
It was McCartney’s first show in Liverpool since the Up And Coming Tour stopped at the O2 Academy on 20 December 2010.
The setlist was largely the same as his show the night before in Manchester, although there were two notable additions: Penny Lane and Mull Of Kintyre, the latter song during the encore. Penny Lane was introduced with the words: “We don’t normally play this one, but we’ve stuck it in tonight. I think you’ll see why.”
Before the concert McCartney was presented with an Echo Arena Icon award by the venue’s chief executive Bob Prattey.
Sir Paul is the biggest musical icon of all time so we hope our award is a fitting tribute.
He seemed extremely proud to accept the award and thrilled to be playing in Liverpool for the final leg of his latest tour.
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).
