On this day, Paul McCartney and his band were in Sydney to perform the fifth show of their seven-concert Australian leg of the “Got Back” tour. This was the second night of their performance in Sydney. As is his habit, Paul introduced some tracklist variations compared to the first night in Sydney:

Before the concert, 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.

NEW SHOW ALERT Sydney, we’ve got great news! Paul has added a second and final show at Allianz Stadium on October 28th, to his #PaulMcCartneyGotBack tour!

As the second Sydney show was drawing to a close, the press office received a message from the Premier of NSW, Chris Minns MP. He’d said that he was loving the show and wanted to convey to Paul that on behalf of the state they were thrilled to have him perform in Sydney.

From Daily Mail Online, November 1, 2023:

[…] It comes as an ‘Acknowledgment of Country’ sign at Sir Paul’s shows over the weekend drew criticism from some fans. The sign was displayed over two large screens at McCartney’s gigs at Allianz Stadium on Friday and Saturday night. It read, ‘We acknowledge the Gadigal of the Eora Nation and all family groups connected to this Country, as the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we gather and perform today. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples here today.

Concertgoer Kobie Thatcher shared her anger over the sign on X on Saturday evening, writing : ‘You can’t even go to a concert now without an ‘acknowledgment of country.”

Her post was met with mixed opinions, with many calling her out for her ‘racist’ remark.

‘Oh for gods sake, get over it, he also flew the pride flag, I guess your knickers are in a twist about that too!’ one user commented.

‘You & other racists could move to Texas, if that would be better for you,’ added another.

One said: ‘You went to a Paul McCartney concert and are complaining about treating POC with respect? The Beatles refused to play to segregated concerts in the USA. Peace and love is what you take to his concerts, not division and hate.’

‘You conservatives are always getting triggered so easily huh,’ one wrote. 

Others lashed out at Thatcher for being a vocal supporter of the No campaign during the Voice to Parliament referendum.

‘So you were one of those ‘if you don’t know, vote no’ people. And now you don’t know what you voted no to,’ one person commented.

‘No, I knew. That’s why I voted No,’ she replied. 

However, others came out in full support of Thatcher and agreed with her statement.

‘I thought this ‘welcome to country’ crap was gonna be finished after we ALL voted No!’ someone said.

‘So sick and annoying. Disgusting too,’ another added.

The Australian crowds have been so epic. So much joy and love. I wish I could share it with you all but until then I’ll post some pictures.
From Daily Mail Online – October 29, 2023 – He’s the music legend adored by fans around the world. And on Sunday, Sir Paul McCartney was all smiles as he kissed his fans goodbye while leaving his Sydney hotel after playing two sold out concerts. The 81-year-old former Beatle appeared in good spirits, waving and blowing kisses to fans camped outside the Park Hyatt hoping to catch a glimpse of the star.
