From Twitter – Paul takes a break during the Wings Over Europe tour in Stockholm, 1972
From Meet the Beatles for Real: Paul in Sweden ’72

Beatlemania returned in August 1972 when Paul and Wings played in Stockholm.  He drew the biggest ever crowd to a pop concert in Sweden:  30,000!  It was at the open-air Tivoli gardens.  the biggest crowd before Paul, was in 1969 when 16,000 came to see Jimi Hendrix, Paul drew almost twice as many but there were a bit too many.   You see the capacity for the place is 20,000 and many people got crushed, hurt and fainted.  The show though was a great success, especially when Paul as an encore said, “an old number form the concert with my old pals” and then sang “Long Tall Sally!”  Me and my friends in the front row could not believe our ears and eyes, just like in the old days.  Paul was better than ever also on “Maybe I’m Amazed,” and “I’m your singer.”   If only the rhythm guitarist had been a Mr. Lennon, the drummer Mr. Starr and the lead guitar Mr. Harrison it would have been 100% perfect!  As you can see I’m a  Beatle-fanatic and it grows stronger each year it seems!
