Liverpool 12 December 2018

Post by Bumblebee »

This is a recording of Paul's 2018 Liverpool concert, complete with soundcheck - which is at the end of disc three. The tracks don't quite correspond to the sleeve art because some of the non music tracks are integrated with a music track whereas the sleeve lists them individually. But all of the music should be present and correct.

If you saw the Glastonbury performance you'll notice that around 80% of the music and 90% of the ad libs are the same, which just goes to show how mechanical these shows have become.

I was at this concert and something happened which I've not been able to get to the bottom of. After Birthday, the first song of the encore, a young girl with her mother appeared on stage. Paul makes some reference to occasionally running competitions with the prize being a chance to sing with him on stage. The girl then does a fairly serviceable version of I Saw Her Standing There. The explanation sounded like BS at the time and it still does now - if there had have been a competition then I'd have been all over it and if I'd have won we'd have done Revolution 9. That aside, does anyone have any more info on these supposed competitions or how this girl managed to wangle a song with Paul?

I was there too ! I have two boots of that show, one IEM, the other audience (Piccadilly).

I was about to say that Paul usually picks the fans among the crowd, but then I made a quick search and found this :

Right then, it was really a competition then. I’m clearly getting too cynical.

It’s likely the same circulating source.

It was a good concert but, for us, marred by the couple in front. Initially I took them to be mother and son; every time Paul did a Beatles song they stood up, sang to each other then got overly intimate - certainly beyond the bounds of mere maternal affection. As I scanned the seats around us I saw a fairly elderly, reverential audience all sat down enjoying the show. Why, then, did I have to get the seats behind Village idiot and his Mrs Robinson….

I was at the show too, as was Elvis Costello (shown at one point on the video screen), the young boy in the 'Fuh You' video (ditto) and the Quarry Men's original drummer Colin Hanton, there on the occasion of his 80th birthday and awarded a few moments backstage with Paul, the first time they'd seen each other in 59 years (arranged by Freda Kelly)

Any or all versions of this show would be welcome. Thanks

I was at this show as well. I was able to track down the mother and daughter that won the contest and supply them with my photos of their time on stage

Luc, could you please share Piccadilly one? I guess it is PCCD311-313.
Searching for Piccadilly Circus releases... and some SG/NPU ones.
