From For Whom The Bell Tells, July 8, 2011:
Two sell-out shows in Rio followed, Paul’s first in the city in 21 years. To say the city was excited was something of an understatement! I travelled with Michelle Lawley who looks after travel, security chief Mark Hamilton, Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens and the tour videographer Charlie Lightening and within minutes of leaving the airport on the way to the hotel, I’d spied at least five huge Macca billboards! The local PR rep had called me to say fans camped outside the venue were singing Paul’s songs at full volume and the version of ‘Let It Be’ I could hear in the background certainly sounded very impressive!
The show itself was certainly all they hoped for and the coverage in the days that followed was nothing short of spectacular. Paul was on the front of all the major newspapers and, thanks to Google Translator, I discovered the reviews couldn’t have been more positive either. Mind you, even with my terrible Spanish, I could work out headlines such as ‘Monumental’, ‘El Grande Del Rock’, ‘Beatlemania Remecio Lima’, ‘Macca El Concierto Mas Esperado Toda Nuestra Historia’ and ‘Espectaculos’ were only ever going to be good.Stuart Bell
