Liverpool shook last night as thousands of Paul McCartney fans gathered by the river Mersey for the final concert of the former Beatle's world tour.
About 35,000 fans attended a purpose-built open-air arena on the King's Dock as Sir Paul prepared for the curtain call to his "Back in the World" tour. He last played in his home town more than a decade ago.
The concert came after the announcement last week that McCartney and his wife, Heather Mills, 35, are expecting their first child. He said: "This is the big one. This is the most emotional gig of the tour."
He also confirmed that a dispute with Yoko Ono, the widow of John Lennon, over the songwriting credits of some Beatles songs, had been resolved. The disagreement came after the singer reversed the Lennon-McCartney credits of Beatles songs on his latest album. He said yesterday: "I'm happy with the way it is and always has been. Lennon and McCartney is still the rock 'n' roll trademark I'm proud to be a part of in the order it has always been." He had asked Ms Ono to approve the change, but she refused.Reuse content
