I'm in Liverpool, with the help of Liverpool Productions and Cavern City Tours, for the Magical Macca VIP Tour! Over this very special weekend, I'll be seeing two UK film premieres, a Denny Laine concert, a giant Beatles collectables convention, and on Sunday, Paul McCartney live at the giant Liverpool Sound concert at Liverpool FC's Anfield stadium!
I arrived in Liverpool today to be greeted by Paul McCartney, himself! He's front and center on this huge billboard for Liverpool's European Capital of Culture 2008 that faces Albert Dock. 36,000 fans will hear Paul's only gig in Liverpool Sunday night and hotels are packed this weekend.
Liverpool has undergone major construction in preparation for this year's European Capital of Culture 2008 award, including today opening up the largest new shopping center in England (and possibly Europe). Liverpool has become a major center of culture with the opening of the Tate Liverpool museum, along with other art galleries, and major Gustav Klimt exhibition opens this weekend.
We walked from our hotel to the Cavern Club, where the Mersey Beatles played 3 sets tonight! The music was very loud and the audience was filled with Paul McCartney and Beatles fans! Now I know what it must have been like all those years with the Beatles in the original Cavern!
More coming up, live, from Liverpool, all weekened! Stay tuned!
