Despite rumours of special guest appearances on stage, nothing came of it, but there were plenty of celebrities in the audience, like Chevy Chase, Bruce Springsteen, Peyton Manning, Eddie Murphy, Emma Stone, Tom Hanks, and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Jim Carrey, Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig, Q-Tip, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, David Spade, Andy Cohen, Billy Crystal, Meryl Streep, Lorne Michaels, Fred Armisen, Steve Buscemi, Steve van Zandt and Chris Rock. It was an abbreviated concert which lasted around an hour and a half, usually McCartney's concerts are closer to three hours. The audience was showered with confetti and rose petals during "My Valentine", during which a disco ball appeared! A wonderful time was had by all.

If Paul doesn't put this out on DVD-A soon, I'm going to be forced to give my money to a homeless person on the street!
