McCartney Pays Homage To Victims Las Vegas

Paul McCartney started his last night’s concert by paying homage to the concert shooting tragedy in Las Vegas the previous night. After opening with ‘A Hard Day's Night’ McCartney told the crowd that, "On such a terrible day, we're going to celebrate the joy in life". 
McCartney tweeted a similar message earlier in the evening, only a few hours before the show:
He made no subsequent comments about Las Vegas but did note that, when playing ‘Give Peace A Chance’, John Lennon's song was "appropriate in today's world". McCartney's show came a day after at least 59 people were killed at the Route 91 Harvest country festival in Las Vegas, the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. The attack was the third concert-related massacre in two years, following the Bataclan theater terrorist attack in Paris in November 2015, which killed 90, and the terrorist bombing at Manchester Arena after Ariana Grande's concert in May, which left 33 dead.

McCartney’s concert at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit was the latest on the American leg of the One-On-One Tour, which will move on to South America for a five-show run.
