Back in the USSR Russia
Music legend Paul McCartney has notched his 3,000th concert with a show in St. Petersburg, Russia. McCartney performed Sunday for an estimated crowd of 50,000 people. The concert was delayed almost 1Ã‚½ hours because fans were in long lines to pass through metal detectors and super-tight security cordons.
It was McCartney’s first show in St. Petersburg and only his second one in Russia. The Beatles were banned by Soviet authorities because they were considered a corrupting influence.
An impressive milestone. Even for someone in the business over 40 years, that’s a lot of concerts.
