the release of Flowers
In The Dirt in June 1989, Paul McCartney recovered success by producing one of its major works, whose quality is comparable with
the one of
Band On The Run or Tug Of War.
For the recording sessions of Flowers In The Dirt, Paul was backed by a whole bunch of skilful, experienced and well-known musicians. Paul knew how to gather these people around him to reform a solid group. This new band enabled him to connect the release of his new album with a huge World Tour among the most prestigious ones. Indeed, this genuine team reconstituted around Paul, gave him all the bases to hit the road again 10 years after his lastest tour carried out with Wings (UK Tour in 1979).
This first World Tour started in 1989 and lasted till 1990.

two years (1991, 1992) of small gigs and various live appearances (like
"Unplugged" on MTV), Paul released a second album in 1993, Off
with virtually the same band. This was the starting point of a second
World Tour in 1993. The band remained the same as in 1989, except
that Blair Cunningham replaced Chris Whitten on the drums.
The galleries (links on the right) cover these five years of "touring" (1989-1993). Browsing through them, you will discover all the dates, places and special events relating to these concerts. A lot of "live" pictures are featured here all along the pages, but they have not necessarily a direct correlation to the text beside (in term of dates).
