1990: Hello People of Iowa from Paul McCartney

Twenty-one years ago today the 42N staff sat in Cyclone Stadium in Ames, Iowa to hear legend Paul McCartney and his band sing for 2-1/2 hours. This clip is from the opening set of the concert. Paul and his 1990's band are clad in those beige suit jackets reminiscent of Paul's Shea Stadium concert with his other band back in the 1960s. Like any good Iowa summer night the humidity was high and so was the temperature (and probably a lot of fans too.) Jackets came off fairly soon after this song as this was the media set - got to look good for the cameras.

Twenty-one years later Paul is touring the USA this summer to these venues:

Sunday 24th July 2011 - Comerica Park, Detroit, USA
Tuesday 26th July - Bell Centre, Montreal, Canada
Wednesday 27th July - Bell Centre, Montreal, Canada
Sunday 31st July 2011 - Wrigley Field, Chicago, USA
Monday 1st August 2011 - Wrigley Field, Chicago, USA
Thursday 4th August 2011 - The Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati, USA
