Paul McCartney dazzled a sold-out crowd of 31,200 fans at Investors Group Field with a touch of Winnipeg flavor on Monday night. The Winnipeg Police Pipe Band joined McCartney for a song late into his set.
During McCartney’s second encore, the Winnipeg Police Pipe Band joined the 71-year-old Beatle on stage to perform Wings’ song Mull of Kintyre. The members stood around Sir Paul and his band as they performed the song during the surprise appearance.
Promoters of the show hinted there would be some kind of local connection during McCartney’s nearly three-hour set which included over 30 songs.
