After performing for nearly 3 hours to 500,000 fans in Rome this evening, Sir Paul said:"I'm blown away by biggest concert. It was one of the most fantastic evenings of my life and I'm so chuffed that at my stage in the game this was the biggest show of my entire career.Yesterday it was estimated that Sir Paul would attract 200,000 people to his free concert outside the walls of the Colosseum. Large video screens were erected throughout the plaza so everyone could see Sir Paul on the stage and even though it was a hot, humid evening, the fans didn't want the concert to end. After midnight, Sir Paul finally told his fans, "You have to go home!" Before leaving the stage he added: "Grazie Roma, arrivederci Roma."
"I can't wait to bring this gig home to Liverpool – the emotion will be running very high."
