The Royal Variety Performance is a televised variety show held annually in the United Kingdom to raise money for the Royal Variety Charity (of which Queen Elizabeth II is life-patron). It is attended by senior members of the British Royal Family. The evening’s performance is presented as a live variety show, usually from a theatre in London and consists of family entertainment that includes comedy, music, dance, magic and other speciality acts.
This was the first appearance of Paul McCartney at the Royal Variety Performance, since November 1963 with the Beatles and the famous quote from John Lennon: “For our last number, I’d like to ask your help. Would the people in the cheaper seats clap your hands? And the rest of you, if you’ll just rattle your jewellery“. Paul made a reference by announcing:
If you don’t mind, this time you could just keep the noise of the jewellery down, it was a bit distracting last time…Paul McCartney
