Question Milestone

When Sir Paul performed in St. Petersburg, Russia, he hit a milestone for concerts performed. What number performance was this? Bonus point if you can break them down between Quarry Men, Beatles, Wings and solo shows.

It was his one millionth concert.

St. Petersburg was Paul's 3,000th performance.

It only felt like the millionth, RR! Supposedly it was the 3,000th although I'm surprised at the numbers since the breakdown is listed as: 2,523 gigs with The Beatles, 140 with Wings, and 325 as a solo artist The numbers for Wings/solo seems a bit low somehow?

I'm feeling generous tonight. I'll award one point each to fellowgardener for the correct performance number and to hibgal for breaking down the performances.

You got to remember that the 2,535 gigs included all the shows of the Quarry Men and the Beatles. Paul toured with Wings in the '70s only and has toured as a solo since 1989.

Contest Scores:
hibgal - 5
fellowgardener - 3
ringo_rama - 1
