1997-Sep-15: Montserrat Concert

Well, most of us haven't seen anything or too much of it yet.
Lots of famous artists, all of them had recorded in George Martin's Montserrat studios, were performing at this concert: Arrow, Carl Perkins, Jimmy Buffet, Phil Collins, Sting, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Midge Ure, The London Gospel Choir - and of course Sir Paul McCartney (who seemed to have yet another new, short haircut). Robbie McIntosh and Wix (from Paul's 1989/1993 band) were playing in the band. No sign of Linda (not even in the audience).

After George Martin had introduced him, Paul performed Yesterday alone with his guitar.
Then the last part of the "Abbey Road Medley" was played - from Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight to The End. Paul started on piano but changed to guitar later. The triple-guitar solo of "The End" was performed by Eric Clapton, Robbie McIntosh and Mark Knopfler. Then Paul left stage and returned to play Hey Jude. Then it seemed to be over but the audience screamed like mad and Paul came back to sing Kansas City. This seemed like it was not intended in the programme. Paul didn't play any instrument during this song.

CNN showed portions of "Kansas City". They have some nice coverage incl. video at their website http://www.cnn.com/SHOWBIZ.
