McConnection – Year 9, number 31 Paul McCartney fanclub Netherlands
Last updated at 12:16pm on 8th June 2007

Sir Paul McCartney played his most intimate gig in years for an audience of just 1,000 fans – which included daughter Stella and her pal Kate Moss.

The Beatles legend is more used to playing huge stadiums and once performed before a crowd of 500,000 at the Colosseum in Rome.

But he went back to basics with yesterday’s show at the Electric Ballroom in Camden, north London, to celebrate the release of his new album, Memory Almost Full.

The secret gig was only announced yesterday morning and tickets were given away free on a first come, first served basis.

Fans queued around the block and tickets sold out in just 13 minutes.

A host of celebrities also turned out for the one-off show including supermodel Kate Moss, Bond actor Pierce Brosnan, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, The Office star Mackenzie Crook, pop singer Gareth Gates and Texas frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri.

During the gig Paul McCartney dedicated a song to ‘John, George Linda and all the lovely people’
Crook appears with Hollywood actress Natalie Portman in the video for the star’s latest single, Dance Tonight.

Moss sang away to Hey Jude from the venue’s balcony, where she watched the show in the company of the star’s daughters, Stella and Mary.

Sir Paul played a 90-minute set packed with Beatles hits and songs from his new album.

He kicked off with Drive My Car and ended with Hey Jude before returning for an encore of Let It Be, Lady Madonna and I Saw Her Standing There.

In between he played the likes of Blackbird, Back In The USSR, The Long And Winding Road and Wings favourite C Moon.

He was joined on stage by his four-piece band. "It’s a little while since I played a gig like this," he told the audience to huge cheers.

Sir Paul looked delighted to be back on stage before the adoring crowd and made no reference to his ongoing divorce battle with Heather Mills.

Memory Almost Full is the star’s 21st studio album and was released on Monday on the newly launched Starbucks record label, Hear Music.

Fans spotted that the title was an anagram of For My Soulmate LLM – the initials of his late wife, Linda Louise McCartney – although McCartney himself has not commented.

There was a poignant moment during the gig when Sir Paul sang Here Today, which he wrote for John Lennon.

"This one was written for John. I would like to dedicate this song to all our fallen heroes – John, George, Linda and all the lovely people," he said. "Let’s hear it for them."

After performing the acoustic song, he said: "It’s a difficult song to sing, that one. We love ’em."

The sound was perfect, the band were supertight and Paul McCartney’s voice was as rich as ever, writes reviewer John Aizlewood.

"It’s been a while since we played a gig this size," said Sir Paul McCartney, surveying the Electric Ballroom – the venue his band Wings used as a rehearsal space in the Seventies. "We ought to do more."

If last night is any yardstick, they should do more of these intimate shows. The "secret" gig (if being announced on national radio and across the internet means "secret") was the hottest free ticket of the year and no wonder.

An audience including McCartney’s daughters Mary and Stella, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, Texas’s Sharleen Spiteri, former James Bond Pierce Brosnan, George Harrison’s widow Olivia and, with weary inevitability, Kate Moss, could scarcely believe their luck: a live Beatle playing some of the songs that form the very DNA of popular music in a venue holding fewer than 1,000 people.

This being McCartney, nothing was left to chance in his first British date with a band since Glastonbury 2004: the sound was perfect, the band were supertight and his voice was as rich as ever, even when exposed on the solo, acoustic Here Today, plucked from 1982’s Tug Of War.

The man who will be a pensioner in 10 days was in remarkably cheery fettle over his 90 minutes.

There was no talk of divorce and no mention of Heather Mills. Instead, his thumbs were held aloft, he shouted "calm down, calm down" in his best Scouse and he found his joke about "Camp Den" (an imaginary, "artistic" type whom McCartney pretended Camden was named after) so funny that he repeated it.

Despite mostly ignoring Wings (although C Moon was received like a longlost grandparent), McCartney was in a musically expansive mood.

He introduced five songs from his new album, Memory Almost Full (it seems safe to assume the "you can come on to my place if you want" line on Dance Tonight was not meant to be taken literally), but he went further back than The Beatles, covering Carl Perkins’s classic Matchbox, as did the Fab Four in their pre-fame, Hamburg days.

The most moving moment came with Here Today. Stark, beautiful and originally a tribute to fellow former Beatle John Lennon, it also now marks the passing of "fallen heroes" Linda McCartney and George Harrison.

"That was," he sighed, "a difficult song to sing." Yet the sombre tone was isolated and the Beatles canon was raided in celebratory fashion.

Back In The USSR, Get Back and Lady Madonna were hard-rocking; Let It Be almost hymnal; and best of all, Hey Jude, which ended the set and restarted for the encore, was a spine-tingling burst of community singing as the audience na na na’d like they had never na na na’d before.

An evening as special as it should have been.

Buy on iTunes: Lyrics: This is the last time you’ll see my voice And the last time you’ll hear my voice Your words are weak an pathetic And when you speak I can see you’re desperate For attention you won’t get The filth you speak comes straight from hell Your walls are weak, and I can tell Somebody said this is the last generation Biding time before the blood of the last ones Follow me with the end in sight Call me, God, in the blink of an eye The first table has already fallen The first one out, soon he’ll be calling Stay close you’ll never die Stay close you were never alive The filth you speak comes straight from hell Your walls are weak, and I can tell Will you give me God?

Ouran High School Host Club – Circus [AMV]

Finally, my 3rd AMV, after which I won’t be numbering each of my AMVs. I really had a hard time choosing the BGM between ‘Womanizer’ and ‘Circus,’ what was eventually used. I just thought ‘Circus’ was more upbeat than ‘Womanizer’ and even lyrically it suited the Host Club as much as ‘Womanizer’ did (ok, maybe not AS much lol). I took it as a personal challenge to make an AMV out of this anime because at first I honestly thought it was impossible. Then, I watched some horrible ones disgracing the incredible anime and I tried to do justice. I would like to believe I was fairly successful. I knew from the very beginning that using all 25? 24? episodes would not be feasible; I planned on utilizing the whole first part, at least. But, I failed to do even that. Actually the first half of the AMV is comprised of the first episode. I’m just glad the first episode was what an first episode ought to be and showed the characters in their moments. As always, Enjoy! Disclaimer: I do not own neither the anime, “Ouran High School Host Club,” nor the BGM, “Circus” by Britney Spears, used. This is purely a work of a fan and is not to be used for sale purposes.
