Paul McCartnely recorded live at Sportpaleis in Antwerpen on the 1st of April 2003. Paul’s plane landed at Brussels Airport because his plane was diverted there due to bad weather. He arrived at the venue with police escort around 5:20pm after his white stretch limo was stuck in a traffic jam on the motorway and had to ride on the shoulder. While he was on the motorway he did a phone interview with DJ Evert Vedema of radio Donna which went live on the air. At the venue he rolled down the window and waved to fans. Just before the concert he was presented backstage with a book titled Art Nouveau in Belgium given to him by EMI-chief Erwin Goegebuer. Security was tight at the show with metal detectors and people being body searched. The sold out concert (13,500) started late at 8:50 pm with the pre-show. Paul came out in a black jacket, red long sleeved T-shirt and blue jeans. On either side of him were telepromoters. One with the song lyrics and one with his stage comments written out. The setlist was the same as the previous shows. Throughout the show Paul and the band spoke some Dutch/Flemish in their intros. Paul told the audience he was speaking Belgie! and Flem-mish. He referred to the audience as Belgies and Antwerps. After Jet he said, Goedenavond Antwerpen! (Good evening Antwerp) We have come tonight to rock you! Then he began All My Loving and messed up the words singing, I’ll pretend that I’m missing the lips I am kissing.. After All My Loving Paul said, Thank you very much. Good evening everybody in Antwerp and Belgie. Ok, so I’m gonna try and speak some Belgium this evening. Watch out! A lot of it will be in English too. For the intro to Getting Better Paul said, Ok so, sometimes, you know when you make a record and do a song, you ah, you record it, you mix it and maybe that’s the last time you ever do the song if you’re not going out on tour. This next song is from the ’60s and this is a song that we’ve only just started doing on this tour. Het is de eerste keer dat ik dit nummer zing in Belgie.( this is the first time I sing this song in Belgium) Before Paul started, Coming Up he said, Everybody, booogy-woogy. I’ve got a feeling we are going to have a good time tonight, Paul said and launched into Let Me Roll It which had the extended Foxy Lady ending. Ok, It’s getting hot in here. Yeah? The band played the Stripper as Paul took off his jacket. Ok gang all the songs we’ve played you so far have been old songs and this is a newer song. Een nieuw nummer. (a new number) Then he began Lonely Road. For the introduction to Your Loving Flame Paul spoke in Flemish and said, Ik wil dit nummer opdragen aan mijn liefste vrouw Heather. (I want to dedicate this number to my dearest wife Heather). When the band left the stage for the acoustic set Paul said, This is the bit where I get left alone with you. K ben alleen met jullie, helemaal alleen. (I’m all alone with you, completely alone) This song was written in the 60’s and it was at the time of the civil right struggles in America and I wrote this song with a young black woman in mind. Then he sang Blackbird. Paul introduced Here Today and said in Dutch, Ik heb dit geschreven na de dood van mijn vriend John. (I wrote this after the passing of my friend John) A few people in the audience started singing Give Peace A Chance after Here Today and Paul strummed the chords on the guitar and told them to keep singing. He pretended to direct them and said, Oh, yeah. Paul said for his intro to Something, George hield van de ukulele. (George loved the ukulele). After Something, Paul said, What about Ringo? and sang lines from Yellow Submarine encouraging the crowd to singalong. This version was more complete with Paul playing acoustic guitar while Abe played drums. Someone in the audience began to sing Octopus’s Garden and Paul made a remark, Are we going to do all of Ringo’s repertoire now?” Then Paul started to sing, I’d like to be, under the sea.. and played some guitar chords to the song. After Eleanor Rigby they played a little of Yellow Sub again. Paul did a fake intro of Baby Face for Hey Jude. At the end of the Hey Jude the crowd continued to sing the “nah-nah-nah’s” while the band was leaving the stage. For the encore Paul came out waving the flag of Belgium. After Lady Madonna he shouted, Wil je meer ? (you want more?) The crowed yelled Je wil meer ! (we want more!) …well in that case.. he immediately launched into I Saw Her Standing There. When the concert was over an a capella version of Band on the Run (as played in his BBC2 commercial but longer) with Paul singing vocals accompanied by sounds and harmonium, was played on the PA system.
