O2 Concert:

Hi Gang,
Lost my friends along the way but finally made it back to my hotel. Start out with soundcheck, it flowed really nicely today with a fantastic version of Sun is Shining! Not a lot of crowd interaction at soundcheck. For some reason they were tight on cameras and the one I always take in was flagged and I was told to put it away after only a few pictures.

Show had a fantastic flow to it. Come and Get it sounded great and Paul's voice was in great form after the 3 plus days rest. He announced his kids were in the audience and said "Hi Kids". The big news here is during the 1st soundcheck they were getting ready to do "Get Back" when Paul announced that a specia;l guest would be joining him on stage especially for London. He then said "I',m going to bring a Rolling Stone on stage" and then announced Ronnie Wood who was all smiles. The whole band looked excited to have him on stage with them and all of them greeted and departed with hugs from everyone. Very cool moment, very rare for Paul to bring up a guest of any sort. Well, that's about it, really great show and 3 friends celebrating their 50th birthdays. Signs were pretty much ignored in soundcheck and the show.
