In his first concert appearance since the death of George Harrison, Sir Paul dedicated his Nobel Peace Prize concert performance to his friend and fellow Beatle. Sir Paul sang two songs from his new Driving Rain album, Your Loving Flame and Freedom. He announced:"The first one I wrote for my fiancée, Heather, and the second one I wrote for the American people after September 11, but tonight I'd like to dedicate them both to my friend George.''During an interview with Norwegian NRK television on Monday, Sir Paul disclosed that he had held hands with George for two hours during their last meeting in New York city just a
few weeks before he died.
At the close of the event, 200 musicians from nine countries joined Sir Paul on stage for the singing of the Beatles anthem Let it Be.
Heather Mills also participated in the concert in a pre-recorded video on behalf of the 1997 Peace Prize winner, the International Campaign to Ban Land Mines, in which she called on the audience to " Please join me in celebrating support for the work of this group. ''
