      Sir Paul McCartney went back to his roots by playing a secret gig at Liverpool's Cavern Club. An audience of 180 close family and friends were at the one-off show. Pregnant wife Heather danced as Paul joined the band Love Train on stage for a set including versions of We Are Family and Let it Be. Cavern owner Bill Heckle said: He was dancing the night away and enjoyed every minute.

      5th Annual Adopt-A-Minefield Benefit Gala (2005)
      The Fifth Annual Adopt-A-Minefield Benefit was held on November 15th, 2005 in Los Angeles. Gibson President, Dave Berryman, presented Sir Paul McCartney with a $1 million donation from Epiphone to help address the worldwide landmine crisis. In all, the organization raised approximately $2 million through ticket sales and auction items in addition to the $1 million donated by Epiphone. Late night host and master of ceremonies, Jay Leno, presented the first Paul McCartney Signature Epiphone Texan guitar for auction. Built as a duplicate of McCartney's own original Texan, which was used to compose and record the classic hit, "Yesterday," the Signature Series guitar was sold for $50,000 with all proceeds benefitting the charity. The evening was hosted by Adopt-A-Minefield Goodwill Ambassadors Paul and Heather Mills McCartney, who shared the stage with Tony Bennett as the evening's headline performers. Among the other celebrities in attendance were Quincy Jones, Ray Romano, Alec Baldwin, Cameron Crowe, and Andy Garcia. Paul joined Tony Bennett in a special musical performance of "The Very Thought of You." It was mentioned that Bennett recorded the song which was played at Paul and Heather's wedding back in 2002. Paul messed up the lyrics to the song. Bennett finished his set with "Fly Me To The Moon." The auction started right afterwards. After the auction ended, Paul performed with his band: "Fly Me to the Moon (Paul sang just a few lines)," "Drive My Car," "All My Loving," "Whole Lot of Shakin' Going On," "English Tea," "The Long and Winding Road," "Midnight Special," "Things We Said Today," "I'll Follow the Sun (with 3 reprises)," "Penny Lane," "Get Back," "Let It Be" and "Lady Madonna".
      Has anybody video and photos?

        There is audio of Paul and Brian doing "God Only Knows" on You Tube with photos from the land mines show

        I believe Brian joined Paul's band for "Let It Be" but I was not there and could be mistaken.

        I seem to remember an auction for that benefit where Paul signed a "Pet Sounds" lp and Brian signed a "Pepper" lp which is kind of unique if you were able to win both.

        I was at the "Hole In The Walls Camps" show at Lincoln Center I don't know of any audio or video but can confirm Paul performed "Lady Madonna" on the piano (solo if I remember right) and "Yesterday" on acoustic guitar accompanied by a string quartet.

        The photo you have of him talking to the little boy, Paul was telling him the "Scrambled Eggs" story before he played "Yesterday"

        I still have my program and just looked through it. Brought back some memories of that night.

            Here's the article about the Whitworth Birthday Party in Rancho Santa Fe for which Paul was paid One Million dollars, which he gave to charity! That man really loved his wife!
