Review of the London Concert by Keith Badman (excerpt of his book, "The Beatles Diary - Volume 2: After The Breakup") :

  "At 6:30pm, at the Docklands Arena, in London, Paul conducts a 25-minute press conference, where he announces the first European leg of his New World Tour and takes questions from the gathering press, which are fielded by his publicist Bernard Doherty. This is then followed, at approximately 7:30pm, by a 90-minute rehearsal concert before approximately 3,000 people, comprising reporters who have remained from the press conference, members of Paul's fan club and 25 winners of the Daily Mirror competition run in the newspaper on January 23. During the conference, Bernard Doherty goes to great lengths to point out to the press that the show tonight is "only a rehearsal and is being presented without its full complement of lighting and stage technology" (Although this gig is reported to be a "secret" event, because Paul has been rehearsing at the venue for the last couple of days, tonight's concert had become common knowledge among industry people and fans alike.)....."

An acoustic set then follows, including 'Good Rockin' Tonight','We Can Work It Out', 'And I Love Her', 'Every Night', 'Hope Of Deliverance', 'Michelle', 'Biker Like An Icon', 'Here, There And Everywhere' and 'Yesterday'. Paul then takes to his baby grand piano, which had risen centre stage from beneath the floor, where, again with the band, he performs 'My Love', 'Lady Madonna', 'Live And Let Die' and 'Let It Be'. For an encore, the band performs 'Sgt. Pepper's', a track which Paul announced before its start that he had not intended to do. (Note: For the upcoming tour, two further tracks, 'Paperback Writer' and 'Magical Mystery Tour', will be added to this set list.)

  Incidentally, prior to the show, a live backstage interview is carried out with Paul and transmitted on the Carlton ITV news programme London Tonight. The feature also includes an excerpt of Paul and his band performing 'Get Out Of My Way'. Camera teams from stations such as Meridian (ITV), CNN in America and MTV in Europe are also there to capture the proceedings. Further clips from the conference are transmitted on the ITV breakfast station GMTV the following morning, Saturday February 6.

  A selection of five videotaped tracks from tonight, 'Drive My Car', 'Coming Up', 'Get Out Of My Way', 'All My Loving' and 'Hope Of Deliverance', are licensed from MPL by ABC TV of America for inclusion in the March 12 edition of US TV show In Concert '93. Due to a disagreement over the arrangements, the footage is never screened and instead is replaced by the official MPL promotional video for 'Get Out Of My Way'."
