On May 17, 1997, Paul was in London’s Bishopsgate Memorial Hall, to answer some of the more than 2 million questions that were proposed via the internet. A hundred guests were invited to this event, that was organized and transmitted live by Rock Channel VH-1 as “McCartney’s Town Hall Meeting”. A nice surprise was an improvised little tune he performed on an acoustic guitar with audience participation.
- The 1st promotional video of “The World Tonight” was premiered during this TV Show.
- “McCartney’s Town Hall Meeting” was the culmination of “The McCartney Week” organised by VH-1.
