In 2012 the Delta Police Pipe Band played on stage with Sir Paul McCartney before 50,000 people at B.C. Place. The pipes and drums accompanied Sir Paul when he sang “Mull of Kintyre” and a video of this performance has received almost 700,000 hits on Youtube.
Sir Paul returned to Vancouver for two shows on April 19th and 20th, 2016 at Rogers Arena. Delta Police Pipe Band was again his band of choice to play “Mull of Kintyre” in front of 17,000 fans each night. The band held numerous extra practices and the performance was well received by the sold out crowds. A total of 16 pipers and 12 drummers played each night.
The Delta Police Pipe Band is led by Pipe Major Cliff Fournier and Drum Major Bill O’Donnell and we would like to thank Sir Paul McCartney for this tremendous honour to play with him again.
