About

In October 2018, Paul McCartney played two nights at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. In 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the festival was cancelled, and transformed into a streaming event broadcasting concerts from the past editions. On October 11th, eight songs from the 2018 McCartney performances were broadcast on YouTube streaming platform.

From CBS Austin, October 6, 2020:

The Austin City Limits Music Festival announced Tuesday morning the lineup and schedule for its virtual ACL Fest 2020.

The three-night broadcast event is free and is set to take place October 9th through 11th starting at 7 p.m. live on YouTube.
