Hi Chris,
So far, I haven't been done to find anything regarding another charity gig played in 1973.
The only Liverpool concert in 1973 I have listed is this one at the Empire Theatre - https://www.the-paulmccartney-project.com/concert/1973-05-18/
Do you remember any more detail ? Like the location, size of the audience ...
Thanks !

Sorry, I must have confused it with November 24th 1979
