Paul McCartney - Live At Coliseum, Rome, Italy - May 10, 2003



Sir Paul McCartney played an historic concert to just 400 people inside the Colosseum in Rome on Saturday, May 10, 2003. The event - one of the first live shows to be played at the venue - was held as a warm-up for the huge free concert that was hosted by Macca outside the 2,000-year-old ruin the day after.
Tickets for the event were sold for up to 1,295 Euros (£925) via an internet auction, with proceeds going towards landmine charity Adopt-A-Minefield and the upkeep of Rome's historic sites. "I think we're the first band to play here since the Christians," joked the former Beatle, as several hundred ticket-less fans stood outside the venue, hoping to hear the music.
The Colosseum was illuminated by multicoloured lights and was filled with dry ice during the mostly-acoustic 100-minute set.  "As you can imagine, this is a magnificent occasion for us," McCartney told the crowd.

Australia

EMI Music Australia: It was 50 years ago that The Beatles made their one and only tour of Australia. The Beatles touched down in Sydney on June 11, 1964 and for an amazing 13 days they captivated the nation.

Hundreds of thousands lined the streets everywhere, Beatlemania was more intense here than anywhere else in the world. It was a time of massive musical and cultural change and a time for teenagers to challenge and defy authority.

Over 300,000 people turned out in Adelaide - it was the biggest crowd anywhere in the world, anytime! The Beatles performed 20 shows across Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane leaving in their wake a trail of euphoric, captivated youth. Australia was never the same following The Beatles 1964 tour. This montage captures the highlights of their tour and the euphoria that followed.

'Then & Now - Australia Salutes The Beatles', a compilation of some of Australia's finest artists covering classic Beatles songs, is available from:
