The Liverpool Sound
Anfield football ground witnessed one of the greatest nights in its history on 1 June 2008 - with a stunning concert by Sir Paul McCartney to celebrate the city's year as European Capital of Culture.
Brilliantly supported by The Kaiser Chiefs and The Zutons, the ex-Beatle - who last played in Liverpool exactly five years ago - gave a magical show with a blockbuster set of hits from his Fab Four, Wings and solo career that had the sold-out stadium on its feet for a full two hours.
With touching tributes to George Harrison - on 'Blackbird' and 'Something' - and Linda, mingled with raucous renditions of 'Hey Jude' and 'Live and Let Die' the audience knew they were witnessing McCartney at the very top of his game.
Special guest Dave Grohl - of the Foo Fighters - joined on drums and vocals to take the show into rock 'n roll overdrive which, after an encore that memorably featured 'A Day in the Life' and Lennon's anthemic 'Give Peace a Chance', sadly but spectacularly ended with an amazing firework display.
