      April 27, 1993 was a fun night. Spent it at the Liberty Bowl Stadium with my tennis bud Rodney Young and his wife Christy. 10th row seats right in front of Paul McCartney. Good memories of a great concert

      Carl Perkins and McCartney jammed before the show backstage.

          Ahh man that is some great footage!

          Despite McCartney's mega-stardom, vast wealth, and hugely succesful career in music, you can see in this clip that CP is a hero of his, someone that he idolised as a youth and probably still looks up to as a musician.

          Thanks for posting!

          I saw this tour in London when I was 15. Great memories... 

           

           

            Did you ever see this footage of Paul and Carl Perkins? (filmed at the same time as above video)   Always gets me choked up when Carl tells the story of how he wrote "My Old Friend."  I think it definitely came from John!

              For me it was 4/17/93 - Anaheim Stadium. For some reason it was the only major West Coast date on the New World Tour.  (Earth Day concert at Hollywood Bowl the day before excepted) . But a friend of mine in Orange Co. bought me a reseller ticket for $60.00 I recall (God bless you, and RIP Paulene). This was still years before the Internet. And I made a drive from Medford, Oregon, where I lived, over 600 miles to So. Cal.  I was so excited I was going to see Paul. It had been 16 years since I saw Wings Over America, and I could not afford to see him on the 1989 World Tour. I spent a lovely day in Huntington Beach with my friend and her family before driving to Anaheim Stadium in my 1992 Hyundai. I had a seat in the very front of the Upper Deck. I had not been to a stadium concert in several years, and the technology had advanced so much. The stage set-up was mind-blowing. 60 foot high video screens on both sides. Video across the top and behind the band. And the sound was immaculate. You could hear every note being played by Paul and Co.!  Lady Macca,  Wix, McIntosh, Stuart, and Cunningham! An amazing show, incredible set-list. New album Off The Ground, still a favorite of mine. It was a beautiful night in Southern California. I drove back to Oregon and my life at the time with a buzz for many days. I still remember the wonderful feeling of being SO LUCKY to do this in my life!

                I saw him in Charlotte NC which was the last show of the US tour and it was televised by FOX.  The song "Robbie's Bit" which was on "Paul Is Live" was from that show and was used to fill time during commercial break - lol. That tour was pretty cool because he did play a lot of songs from OTG and most of theose songs got decent reception from the crowd.
