It’s been a very busy July here at PaulMcCartney.com HQ! The first leg of Paul’s U.S. summer tour kicked off in Albany at the start of the month. In two weeks Paul, the band and crew visited Albany, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Fargo, Lincoln, and Kansas City.
Spending so much time on the road invariably means lots of stopping off along the way. Paul has a large collection of personal memorabilia and souvenirs, which he has gathered after years of touring and travelling the world.
Amy from the U.S.A. has been in touch after noticing something that many of you may have wondered about:
“You've had a Detroit Red Wings sticker on one of your acoustic guitars for years now. How did you get it and why have you kept it on there for all these years? Being from the Detroit area I'm very curious.”
We caught up with Paul recently to find out. He replied,
“We were on a Wings tour quite a while ago and when we played Detroit somebody gave me a Red Wings sticker, which I liked the look of, so I stuck it on my guitar and I have kept it there ever since. It does make it a little awkward when I go to places like Pittsburgh and the Mayor of the town offers me a Penguin sticker to put alongside!”
If you were at Paul’s recent Pittsburgh show, why not see if you can spot yourself in the crowd HERE!
And if you’d like to indulge further into the history of Wings; the band and the music, you won’t have long to wait! Paul has personally supervised all aspects of the reissues of Venus and Mars and At The Speed Of Sound, the next releases in the Paul McCartney Archive collection. Find out more HERE…
