NBD TV launches 'Paul McCartney Live' at MIP-TV

NBD TV, one of the UK's leading independent television distributors, will offer a brand new concert 'Paul McCartney Live in St Petersburg' for the first time at MIP-TV.
In this unique 1 x 52’ television event, Sir Paul performs live against the stunning backdrop of St. Petersburg’s Palace Square during his 2004 world tour.
More than 50,000 people braved the elements to hear him put on an enthusiastic and nostalgic set of songs from The Beatles, Wings and his solo back catalogue. Penny Lane, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and Get Back brought the Beatles most devoted admirers to the height of excitement.
The concert marked Paul’s 3000th performance of his career and his second time in Russia. According to reports, one of the most popular songs was the Beatles classic 'Back In The USSR'. While the Beatles were banned from the old Soviet Union, Paul McCartney was welcomed by the current government with President Vladimir Putin a big fan attending the concert.
Nicky Davies Williams, Chief Executive Officer, said: "Paul McCartney continues to be one of the world's most admired writers and performers and this matchless venue highlights the longevity of his music. The enthusiastic audience in St Petersburg gives the concert a warmth and exuberance that makes this a must-have show for broadcasters around the world."
Celebrating its 21st Anniversary in 2005, NBD TV presents a unique portfolio of high quality music, entertainment and documentary programming. NBD TV's catalogue contains an eclectic mix of shows from top international producers/directors and independent producers and features classic and cutting-edge concert, documentary and light entertainment programmes.
