Sir Paul McCartney braved bad weather last night (22.12.09) to perform at London's O2 Arena. The former Beatles singer's 'Good Evening London' concert - his only UK date of 2009 and the climax of his European tour - went ahead despite icy conditions causing chaos on local roads and public transport. Paul, 67, kicked off the show with Beatles classics 'Magical Mystery Tour' and 'Drive My Car' and performed a set which spanned his entire career from The Beatles, to Wings and his solo material. Highlights included 'Paperback Writer', 'Band On The Run', 'Live and Let Die', 'Back in the U.S.S.R', 'Blackbird' and festive hit 'Wonderful Christmastime'. At one point he was also joined on stage by 18 bagpipe players for Scottish ode 'Mull Of Kintyre'. He ended his set with storming renditions of some of his best loved songs, including 'Hey Jude', 'Day Tripper', 'Lady Madonna' and 'Helter Skelter'. Paul's European tour took in dates in Hamburg, Berlin, Arnhem, Paris, Cologne and Dublin, before ending in London on Tuesday.
