From the “New World Tour” tour book, remembering the 1989/90 tour:
Of all the gigs I’ve played that was the greatest because of the audience. I’ve never been in a concert like it. I could feel every single human being there was totally focused and it lifted all of our lives up. Hearing Paul sing those John songs, it was magic. I love it when people are there for the thrill, the experience, the memory, nothing cynical in their attitude at all.Linda McCartney
It was the best moment of the tour for me. A homecoming which led to a
lot of nerves particularly for the band, which I hadn’t even thought of till we got there. But they were all thinking, This guy was in The Beatles. We’re not The Beatles. Where does that leave us?
Standing on the stage all day you could see this beautiful weather coming towards us, blue sky, a lovely sunset. Great balmy evening and a crowd of 50,000. We played pretty good and the high-spot was when we played the medley tribute to John, finishing off with Give Peace A Chance. We finished — and the crowd didn’t. They just kept the ‘All we are saying’ chant going. That brought a lump to the throat. They sang it over and over. It just came looming up to us from the back until we had to kick back into it — that was one of the greatest moments of my career. It’s moments like that that make you go, God, this is it! This is why I like it!Paul McCartney
From National Museums Liverpool:
On 28 June 1990 Paul McCartney returned to his home city for a charity concert, appropriately named ‘Let It Be Liverpool’.
The enormous concert was held in the King’s Dock, on the waterfront adjacent to the Albert Dock. Since then the King’s Dock was the venue for Liverpool’s summer pops concerts for many years until 2004. A new purpose built stadium, the Echo Arena Liverpool, opened there in 2008.
