Good Evening Europe
Kicking off, appropriately enough, in Hamburg, the seven-city Good Evening Europe tour followed a summer jaunt across America. Incredibly, it had been 49 years since The Beatles’ historic visit to Hamburg, those early shows now ingrained in rock folklore. "This is my chance to bring our current show home to where it all began,” Paul said at the time. “Starting in Hamburg, ending in London and rocking everywhere in between. I'm very much looking forward to ending the year on a high." The tour ended with a celebratory final show at the 20,000 seater O2 Arena in London. Although this was Paul’s first public performance at the O2, he was already familiar with the venue. In 2004, before the O2 Arena was up and running as a music venue, Paul used the Millennium Dome (as it was known then) for rehearsals for his massive stadium '04 Summer Tour, which ended with Paul's legendary headline slot at Glastonbury Festival.
