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 was scheduled to play Rogers Arena on the following evening.

The setlist contained ‘Mull Of Kintyre’, which McCartney often performs at Canadian shows. Accompanying his band were the Delta Police Pipe Band.

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).

McCartney returned top BC Place on 6 July 2019 during the Freshen Up Tour.
