On this day, Paul McCartney and his band were in Sydney to perform the fourth show of their seven-concert Australian leg of the “Got Back” tour. This was the first of two nights in Sydney.

While staying in Sydney, Paul was interviewed by BBC Radio 1 ahead of the release of the final Beatles single titled “Now And Then“. The interview was aired on November 2, which happens to be the same day the single was released.

From — Australia’s leading news site, October 28, 2023:

As a full moon beat down on tens of thousands of poncho-clad Aussies at Sydney’s Allianz Stadium on Friday night, there was a fervent energy in the air. Paul McCartney was late to come on as many fans were still making their way to their seats amid heightened security at the 45,500-capacity venue. As time rolled on, my mind began wondering whether the former Beatle was okay. After all, it’s not often this many people come out to see an 81 year old perform. Most of us at 81 would likely be curled up at home with the slippers on at this hour.

However, any doubts in my mind were allayed the moment Macca – looking as sharp in his signature suit as he did when he was a spring chicken – graced the stage. As he yelled out the count-in to Can’t Buy Me Love, plucked his viola bass and belted out the hit’s iconic lead vocal, you could see a steely look of determination in his eyes. The crowd were giddy at the sight of a real life Beatle, but it wasn’t all about the Fab Four as McCartney launched into a set that featured a series of Wings hits early on.

His voice was thunderous as he rattled through some of his most uplifting and powerful songs in the Beatles catalogue, including Got to Get You Into My Life and Getting Better.

And, it wasn’t just the fans loving the performance. McCartney himself had to stop for a moment to take it all in. Between songs, he was witty and sharp as a tack. At one point he began reading the bizarre signs in the crowd and offered a sarcastic and deadpan responses to each one.

Musically, Macca is still a force to be reckoned with too. As his fingers danced across the piano during Maybe I’m Amazed, it was clear Sydney was watching one of the all-time greats in action.

Although this was a real stadium show with lasers, lights and exploding pyrotechnics (which McCartney jokingly complained were too loud for him), there were some special stripped-back moments. […]

There was a hushed response from the crowd when Depp appeared alone on the screen as the song began. The visuals then showed Depp and Portman perform an interpretative dance to McCartney’s 2012 song My Valentine – a tune the A-list duo appeared in the video for. […]
