Paul McCartney plays a return gig at The Cavern in 1999

This day in 1999, Paul McCartney returns to The Cavern after 36 years for a special live performance.  McCartney focused on tunes from his recently released Run Devil Run but also threw in some gems like "Twenty Flight Rock" and "I Saw Her Standing There".  Those 2 took him back to his days with The Beatles playing there over 3 decades before.  His band also featured Pink Floyd's David Gilmour and Deep Purple's Ian Paice.  There were roughly 300 packed in the Cavern but it was also broadcast on the internet as well as released on DVD later.  Enjoy some video footage from that historic night here...
