First live rendition by Paul McCartney as solo artist
From paulmccartney.com, July 20, 2018:
Paul will be returning to his old school in Liverpool, now LIPA (The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts), on Wednesday 25th July for an intimate hour long Q & A and conversation session with LIPA students. The event will be streamed live on Facebook allowing fans from all over the world to tune in and watch Paul talk about his career and his forthcoming new album Egypt Station which will be released on September 7.
For those watching the event on Facebook they too have the opportunity to join in. Paul would like to ask fans from around the world to submit questions to his Facebook page in advance. A select few will be chosen to be answered as part of the event.

At the end of the Q&A, Paul McCartney announced a surprise show the next day somewhere in Liverpool. The interview was followed by Paul and his band performing an acoustic set in front of around 450 people.
