Description

The Liverpool Sound was a concert held at Anfield stadium in Liverpool on 1 June 2008 to celebrate the city’s year as the European Capital of Culture. The concert was headlined by former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney, playing in his home city for the first time in five years.

McCartney’s appearance marked the fifth anniversary of his last appearance in his home city and one month after his fourth classical album, Ecce Cor Meum, had been performed at Liverpool Cathedral. He played for approximately two hours, playing songs from his Beatles, Wings and solo career.

He opened his set with the Chan Romero song Hippy Hippy Shake – a song covered by The Swinging Blue Jeans in 1963 but played live by numerous Merseybeat acts prior (The Beatles included). A tribute to George Harrison was made in the rendition of Something – performed on a ukelele given to McCartney as a gift by Harrison – midway through his performance. The encore included the first live performance by a Beatle of A Day in the Life which led into a rousing rendition of The Plastic Ono Band’s Give Peace a Chance in front of a giant CND symbol. Yoko Ono was seen smiling with approval as the crowd sang her late husband’s peace anthem. The morning after the concert, Liverpool newspapers claimed the show to be McCartney’s best ever gig.
