The show was presented as a way to celebrate his latest release Memory Almost Full. Both the New York and London concerts were free to fans lucky enough to get one of the limited  numbered tickets. The box set The McCartney Years is released. 2008 Ringo's Liverpool 8 album is released.

Because of a falling out Ringo had with Mark Hudson during the production of this record, the liner notes list Ringo and Hudson and producers, and Ringo and David A. Stewart as reproducers. Recorded in LA and the UK, this is Ringo's 14 th  studio album and was met with mixed reviews from  critics. Liverpool 8 The first single from the album was the title track, released in early 2008 and reaching #94 on the US  charts. Written by Ringo and David A. Stewart, Ringo sings and plays drums and percussion with Stewart  providing el. guitar, ac. guitar and strings. One writer says, “this is Ringo's autobiography put to song, with an emphasis on his Beatle years.” The title, Liverpool 8, referred to Ringo's mailing district where he grew up. Ringo sings the pick-ups to the verse alone in a narrative fashion before the band enters with guitar, flute,  keyboard and orchestra. The chorus uses strings and sustained keyboards and bass. A drum fill and the rock band enters, with el. guitar and strings.

Ringo's next verse mentions “George & Paul & my friend John” with vocal harmonies. The chorus returns now over full band. Paul is recovering from a secret heart operation. The 65-year-old underwent a coronary angioplasty just before the holidays. George and Giles Martin were honored with Grammys for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album For  Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual media category. Memory Almost Full is certified gold. Paul wowed his hometown Liverpool audience with nearly 2 hours nonstop music, mostly Beatles songs,  along with a few of his solo songs. Paul played 26 songs and 10 minutes of fireworks followed the final number. Paul showed off his new girlfriend Nancy Shevell for the first time in London Tuesday as he joined his  family for a gala night – and a good cause. The couple gave each other a kiss and then walked around an exhibition and auction of photographic  works by Paul's daughter Mary.

Paul is gearing up for his “Friendship First” concert in Tel Aviv next week. And despite reporting threats against his life by militant anti-Israel factions, the former Beatle says he's  keeping to his usual show preparations. Forty-three years after the Israeli government banned The Beatles from their country, Paul McCartney  performed in front of an audience of 45,000 in Tel Aviv.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
