Rumours that McCartney was to have been joined on stage by Bruce Springsteen turned out to be false, although The Boss was said to have been backstage during the show. The rumours appear to have originated from Tweets posted by radio station CKNW. Springsteen is scheduled to play Rogers Arena on the following evening.

Here's a clip of the Live And Let Die finale:

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).

The setlist contained Mull Of Kintyre, which McCartney normally performs at Canadian shows. Joining McCartney's band were the Delta Police Pipe Band.
