It was a good performance of the song!

McCartney Makes History with “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”
Sir Paul McCartney’s “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” performance with U2, which kicked off Live 8 in London Saturday, was the first time the former Beatle had ever played the song live. The British rocker has never included the tune in live sets, because he always felt odd performing it without his former group. But McCartney thought it was a great idea to open the show with Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band as it has the perfect opening line – a reminder of Live Aid 20 years ago. He says, “I was rung up, initially, by Bob Geldof… and he said, ‘We want you to open up with U2. We’ve got this idea: 20 years ago today… Do Sgt Pepper. I said, ‘You know what, that’s a good idea, ‘ so I did it.”
