About

This was the second of two nights in Sydney.

From paulmccartney.com, For Whom The Bell Tells, January 19, 2018:

Sydney (show day) – Tuesday 12th December

Switching on the TV in my room this morning, one of the lead news stories on The Today Show is: “Finally!!! Sir Paul McCartney rocks Sydney in epic three-hour set”. In fact, all the programme’s main hosts have been at the show and are raving about it.

The Australian Mail Online leads with: “It was overwhelming: Paul McCartney performs epic three-hour set in Sydney complete with Beatles classics, as stars including Kylie Minogue praise singer’s first show in 24 years.”

Sydney’s leading daily paper The Telegraph reports: “Paul McCartney rocks Sydney with three-hour set packed with Beatles classics and more. LOVE, three chords and the truth are all you need when in the presence of the rock greatness of Paul McCartney.”

Sydney – Wednesday 13th December

You’d think after giving back-to-back epic performances in Sydney, Paul might just want to chill in the sunshine and hang by the pool – well, you’d be wrong! Before setting off for New Zealand in the evening Paul finds an interesting way to spend his day.

In what you might call a new career ‘high’, Paul climbs Sydney Harbour Bridge, with a two-hour trek to the summit despite the physical ordeal of giving it all in a three-hour show just hours earlier. And as he takes in the view to Manly, Bondi and the South Pacific beyond, he poses for a photo with a peace sign.

Speaking about the experience, he says: “Yeah, well people say to you, do you ever get a chance to see the countries you’re playing in, and so often the answer is not really because it’s airport, car, hotel, gig, hotel, airport, goodbye. So you don’t always get a chance, but if you have a day off … I’d been looking at the bridge, I could see the bridge from my hotel, and I’d been seeing people climbing up it and I thought ‘I’d love to do that.’ At first I thought, it’s gonna be really strenuous because it’s a high bridge. But then I noticed that they stop every so often and look at the view, and so me and a couple of mates did it. It was fantastic.”

From Twitter – Up on Sydney Harbour Bridge! Last day in Oz. Had a great time. Thanks!
