Last Saturday 23rd May, Paul celebrated his 50th London solo performance at a sell-out show at The O2. The concert – part of his ‘Out There’ tour – is also part of an on-going celebration of the writing of one of the world’s most loved and popular songs: ‘Yesterday’. In testament to its popularity, when Paul performed the song that evening the whole crowd sang along.
Although the song’s exact writing date remains uncertain, it is 50 years this May that Paul finished writing the classic anthem. Before the O2 concert on Saturday British TV personalities Ant and Dec presented Paul with a special award from the PRS to commemorate the song’s anniversary.
