At 6:30pm, at the Limehouse Studios, situated at 128 Wembley Park Drive, Wembley, Middlesex, Paul and his band perform live before a specially invited audience of around 200 for a videotaping of a programme in the MTV series Unplugged. For the show, Paul and his group perform in three separate sets: 'Mean Woman Blues', 'Matchbox', 'Midnight Special', 'I Lost My Little Girl', 'Here, There And Everywhere', 'San Francisco Bay Blues', 'We Can Work It Out' (in all attempted four times), 'Blue Moon Of Kentucky', 'I've Just Seen A Face', 'Every Night', 'Be-Bop-A-Lu-La', 'She's A Woman', 'And I Love Her', 'The Fool', 'Things We Said Today', 'That Would Be Something', 'Blackbird', 'Hi-Heel Sneakers', 'Good Rockin' Tonight' and 'Junk'. At this point, Paul switches to the drums for 'Ain't No Sunshine', featuring a lead vocal from Hamish Stuart, after which, the musicians return to how they were before for another stab at 'We Can Work It Out' and, to close the show, 'Singing The Blues'.
The 51-minute Unplugged programme premieres on MTV in America on April 3, with simultaneous FM stereo transmissions, networked to participating radio stations by the Global Satellite Network. The broadcast is preceded by a 15-minute radio interview with Paul in which he discusses how he came to choose some of the songs appearing on the show. (The TV programme only is repeated on MTV in America on April 7.) The first MTV Europe broadcast occurs on May 13. In the UK, on terrestrial television, the first screening takes place on the ITV channel TSW, serving the South West of England, on June 10, with a further airing, this time to a much wider audience, on Channel 4, on August 26, delayed for a week from its original August 18 scheduled airing. Incidentally, the TSW airing is hastily screened on this date to correspond with Paul's Unplugged gig in Cornwall, in the South West of England, which had taken place three days previously on June 7. A further scenario takes place in Denmark when, on the eve of Paul's secret concert at the Falkoner Theatre in Copenhagen, the MTV Unplugged show is transmitted on national Danish television on July 23.
The songs 'Here, There And Everywhere', 'And I Love Her', 'That Would Be Something', 'Junk' (instrumental) and 'I Lost My Little Girl' are sang here for the first time in public. The latter is a song that Paul wrote when he was 14 years old. 'Blue Moon Of Kentucky' is performed in both slow and fast versions. 'We Can Work It Out' is repeated, complete with false starts, when Paul forgot the lyrics. Much of the performance appears later on the album Unplugged (The Official Bootleg), released in the UK on May 20 and in America on June 4 which adds the following tracks not included in the TV transmission: 'San Francisco Bay Blues', 'Hi-Heel Sneakers' and 'Ain't No Sunshine'. Although the songs 'Mean Woman Blues', 'Matchbox', 'Midnight Special', 'The Fool' and 'Things We Said Today' will remain unscreened, audio from some of these tracks will appear on singles such as the promotional CD 'Biker Like An Icon'. 'Midnight Special' and 'Things We Said Today' will appear officially in Holland on November 8, 1993, as part of a CD with 'Biker Like An Icon' (live and studio versions). (Only 'Matchbox' and 'The Fool' remain unissued in any form.)

Before any of the reporters and classical music writers can ask Paul any questions, they are shown the documentary Ghosts Of The Past, the programme about the making of the Oratorio. Those in attendance are given a special Oratorio press kit, which contains a sweatshirt, emblazoned with the cover art of the Oratorio album. In order to retain a dignified atmosphere, the infamous New York "jock" Howard Stem is refused admission. A journalist asks Paul if writing the Oratorio has influenced his pop music writing at all. "It reminded me of structuring stuff, as on the second side of The Beatles' Abbey Road album," he replies. "I hadn't done that for a while. So now I'm writing for the next pop album, and before I record it this time, I will have written it all. Whereas normally, you go in with a few ideas, and knock 'em around in the studio. I think it'll be more satisfying to know what I'm going to go in and do." Another reporter asks Paul on how working with Carl Davis differed from writing with John Lennon. Paul laughs as he replies: "I bossed Carl around more than I bossed John!"
At the conclusion of the session, Capitol Records President Hale Milgrim presents Paul with a platinum disc for sales of Tripping The Live Fantastic - Highlights.

Paul and Linda, meanwhile, are to be found in Toronto, Canada, where they hold another press conference for the film Get Back at the Sutton Place Hotel, an event attended by approximately 50 photographers and reporters. At the conclusion of the conference, the McCartneys partake in a round of interviews. To reporter John Sakamoto of the Toronto Sun, Paul reveals that he donated a song to Ringo's latest album. "It's called 'Angel In Disguise' - which is Ringo. He was pleased." Paul adds: "Ringo wanted an extra verse, so I said, 'Let's write the extra verse together. Or you can just write it and we'll have co-written the song.' I understand he has written a third verse. If it's another 'With A Little Help From My Friends', great, if it isn't, great!"
Paul also reveals to the Toronto Sun reporter that the three former Beatles are moving ahead with their long mooted documentary, entitled The Long And Winding Road, an idea first touched upon back in 1970. Besides revealing that the director for the programme has been named as Geoff Wonfor, Paul exclusively reveals: "What I'm most excited about is getting new input into the thing. For instance, we could do voice-overs where we tell our side of the story, or put in home movies that nobody has ever seen! I've got some nice footage from Rishikesh when we went to see the Maharishi. It's interesting, seeing us looking like total wallies, wearing these little Indian things."
Paul also gives an interview to CITY TV's Movie Television programme, an item split into two parts and transmitted on the station on Saturday November 2 and Sunday November 3. Paul also gives a 30-minute live interview on the radio station CHUM-AM, where he also takes phone questions from the listening public. Later this evening, Paul and Linda attend the Canadian premiere of Get Back at the Varsity II cinema in downtown Toronto, at the Manu Life Center, but leave the cinema before the film ends. Fans present at the screening are none too pleased. Their $35 tickets (proceeds of which go to the environmental studies programme at Bishop's College School in Toronto and the Friends Of The Earth) clearly state: "Paul McCartney will be present to introduce the film." Many fans had queued all day just to see a silhouette of Paul, standing in the dark at the back of the theatre, waving to the large crowds who were straining to catch a proper glimpse of the former Beatle. Paul and Linda reappear later at the post-premiere party, which is held at Mr. Greenjean's restaurant. Diners are naturally served dishes prepared from recipes from Linda's vegetarian cookbook. (Incidentally, media coverage of Paul's visit to Toronto is shared equally with the Prince and Princess of Wales, who are also currently visiting Canada's largest city. Interestingly enough, the Toronto based newspapers claim that security at Paul's press conference on October 25 was higher than that afforded to the two Royals.)

In the seclusion of a large sound stage at Bray Film Studios, near Windsor in Berkshire, George begins rehearsals with Eric Clapton and his band for his upcoming concert tour of Japan. A Japanese crew from NHK TV visits the rehearsals on November 12 to preview the shows.
"It'll be special for me, because it'll be the tour which will decide whether I wanna do anymore touring or not, you see. This could be my first and last tour or it could just be something that begins a new period for me," George tells NHK TV in Japan.
For their short feature, which is transmitted on Sunday November 24, during the programme Subarasiji Nakamatati (Beautiful Comradeship), George is seen arriving in his car and, knowing that the crew videoing him are from Japan, apologises by saying, "Sorry it's not a Honda!" The interview, carried out on the stage, features conversation and the songs 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps', 'Wonderful Tonight', 'Something' and 'Layla', and recalls their first meeting, which was at a Lovin' Spoonful concert at The Marquee club in London in 1966. (Different interviews carried out during the Bray Studios rehearsals also form a Sony Music TV Special, which is aired in Japan in November, just prior to the start of George and Eric's tour.)

Monday November 18
At New York City's Carnegie Hall, the North American premiere takes place of The Paul McCartney Liverpool Oratorio, with Paul, Linda and their entire family in attendance, the McCartneys having arrived at the venue in their limousine at 7:21pm. Conducted by Carl Davis, the US version features a performance by The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra who are making their American concert debut tonight. Tonight's line-up of performers is basically the same line-up as those who performed in Liverpool at the Anglican Cathedral on Friday June 28, with the exception of the soprano Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, who is replaced this evening by Barbara Bonney. At the conclusion of the premiere performance, the audience applause is timed at a most satisfactory 6 minutes 40 seconds!
Tuesday November 19
In America, mixed reviews of the previous night's Oratorio performance begin appearing in the newspapers:
"Neither McCartney's celebrity nor his fans' hysteria could diminish the power of this score ... the piece is fervently melodic ... a first class work that speaks in distinctly hummable tunes." (The Chicago Tribune)
"... there are many fine melodies.... a work that deserves to be heard again." (Associated Press)
"There's not enough variety in tempo ... and such passages as the 'God Is Good' finale are downright sappy. Yet the majority of the musical and textual statements are strong and memorable." (The New York Daily News)
"A sprawling, mawkish, excruciating, embarrassing 90-minutes of ego!" (Newsday)
Tuesday November 19 & Wednesday November 20

Tour of Japan with Eric Clapton
Billed as "Rock Legends: George Harrison And Eric Clapton And His Band"
Sunday December 1 - Tuesday December 17
George undertakes his first concert tour since 1974, visiting Japan with his close friend Eric Clapton and his eight-piece backing band. This line-up of musicians includes Nathan East (bass guitar), Steve Ferrone (drums), Chuck Leavell (keyboards), Greg Phillinganes (keyboards). Ray Cooper (percussion), Andy Fairweather-Low (guitar), Katie Kissoon and Tessa Niles (backing vocals).
This visit, George's first to the country since The Beatles' visit in 1966, will consist of just six venues and comprise the following twelve shows:
The Yokohama Arena, Yokohama (Sunday December 1- 6pm show)
Osaka Castle Hall, Osaka (Monday December 2 and Tuesday December 3 - both 7pm)
International Exhibition Center, Nagoya (Thursday December 5 - 7pm)
Hiroshima Sun Plaza Hall, Hiroshima (Friday December 6 - 7pm)
Fukouka Kokusai International Center Hall, Fukuoka (Monday December 9 - 7pm)
Osaka Castle Hall, Osaka (return performances on Tuesday December 10, Wednesday December 11 and Thursday December 12 - all 7pm)
Tokyo Dome Stadium, Tokyo (nicknamed Big Egg) (Saturday December 14 - 6pm, Sunday December 15 - 6pm, and Tuesday December 17 - 7pm).
Their repertoire, half of which features Beatles songs, includes 'I Want To Tell You', 'Old Brown Shoe', 'Taxman', 'Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)', 'If I Needed Someone', 'Something', 'Fish On The Sand' (performed on December 1 and 2 only), 'Love Comes To Everyone' (December 1 only), 'What Is Life', 'Dark Horse' and 'Piggies'. (At this stage, Eric Clapton takes over, performing 'Pretending', 'Old Love', 'Badge', a track co-written with George back in 1969, and 'Wonderful Tonight'.) George then returns to perform 'Got My Mind Set On You', 'Cloud Nine', 'Here Comes The Sun', 'My Sweet Lord', 'All Those Years Ago', 'Cheer Down', 'Devil's Radio', 'Isn't It A Pity' and an encore consisting of 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' and 'Roll Over Beethoven'. (For the performance of 'Piggies', George adds the verse originally written by John back in 1968.) For the duration of the tour, George uses the following guitars: Roy Buchanan Bluesmaster electric guitar No. 6, Gibson J-200 custom acoustic guitar, a gold Fender 12-string electric guitar, a red Fender Stratocaster Eric Clapton model, and a Gibson Les Paul Standard '60.
"All George has got to do, essentially, is walk out on stage and strum an acoustic guitar and we'll do everything else. There's nothing for him to worry about. I put the idea to him and he was delighted and scared at the same time. He was really scared to death. He changed his mind about five different times." (Eric Clapton - Rolling Stone magazine.)
"We're going to Japan where the world spotlight won't be on him and he probably won't get a bad review. It's a great opportunity. If he doesn't do it now he probably never will... George is very paranoid about the press. There's a lot of anger in him, I don't know why. He's got his guard up before he begins..." (Eric Clapton on his tour with George.)
Thursday November 28
At 3:57pm Japanese Time, George and Eric arrive in Japan at New Tokyo International Airport (Narita Airport) on flight no. JAL 420. On their arrival, a waiting reporter asks George about his flight. "I had been looking forward to seeing Mount Fuji and a panoramic view of Japan from the plane, but it was really foggy and rainy," he says, adding: "I've been on the flight for 12 hours and so now I'm really sleepy. I should have gone on a different flight." After passing through customs, George, wearing a turtleneck sweater and a dark blue overcoat, appears in the airport arrivals lobby at 4: llpm, where he is greeted by a large welcoming committee of 150 screaming fans and representatives from the Japanese press and television. Immediately, George heads for the Capitol Tokyo Hotel, formerly the Tokyo Hilton Hotel, the same building used by The Beatles in 1966, where he takes a rest to recover from jet lag.
Friday November 29
Following a good night's sleep, George and Eric hold a 1pm press conference, in front of 500 reporters, in the Red Pearl room at the Capitol Tokyo Hotel. (Practically all the questions are, naturally, asked in Japanese.)
George: "A short message ... Hello! It's very nice to be here after such a long time. It's very nice to be here, thank you."
Female reporter (speaking in English): "I'd like to ask you George a question about the reformed Beatles..."
George (interrupting): "No, it can't be possible because The Beatles don't exist, especially now as John Lennon isn't alive. It (the story) just comes every time Paul needs some publicity, he announces to the press that The Beatles are coming together again, but that's all. I wouldn't pay too much attention to that."
The press conference concludes with a P.A. playing George's 'Got My Mind Set On You'. Just prior to the start of the conference, George and Eric did a photo session for the Japanese press in the adjacent White Pearl room at the hotel.
Saturday November 30
At the Yokohama Arena, from 12 noon to 5pm, George, Eric and his band rehearse for the tour.
In the UK, Q magazine features an interview with Eric who talks about the tour of Japan with George. He remarks in the interview: "I don't think he's ever had the experience of playing for an audience with a great band. The Beatles played to 10-year-old kids who screamed their heads off. He's stopped smoking, he's got himself into fighting-fit shape, he's got my lighting, my sound, my band. It's a crack team."
Sunday December 1
"Hello! I hope many of you can speak much better English than I can ... and I certainly can't speak very much Japanese ... but this is a song which I wrote to an old friend of ours ... whose name is John Lennon." (George's introduction to 'All Those Years Ago' in front of 13,000 fans.)
At some of the concerts during this tour, special George Harrison Sticking Plaster is distributed to fans. This is, according to a tour spokesman, "to aid them should they get injured in the excitement of watching the former Beatle perform!"
Monday December 2
Reviews of the first concert reach the Japanese newspapers. The Sports Nippon paper enthusiastically writes: "George Harrison, his guitar gently wept in Japan; a dream-come-true concert opened in Yokohama." In the Daily Sports, a reporter writes: "... an impassioned performance by Harrison and Clapton." All is not rosy with Billboard who call it "an entertaining if unspectacular show," adding: "George looked nervous and it wasn't until 'Something' that he relaxed enough to stretch out a bit on guitar." The report goes on: "Clapton played his sideman role to the hilt, staying to the side of the stage and leaving much of the solo work to Harrison - whose slide playing was sublime!"
This evening, in front of approximately 11,000 fans, George introduces the song 'Taxman': "This next song is a very old song written in 1873!"
Wednesday December 4
George takes advantage of a day off from the tour by shopping at the Hankyu Department Store in Osaka.
Thursday December 5
To cash in on George's current tour of Japan, the albums Living In The Material World, Extra Texture (Read All About It) and Dark Horse are released in Japan on CD. The worldwide release of these albums, including both the US and the UK, takes place on January 27, 1992.

Thursday December 12
George is unwell due to a cold, forcing him to go to the Tanaka Clinic in Osaka. Due to this illness, George is seen taking a drink of water in between each track of his performance. (Audience attendance is estimated at 12,000.) Backstage at the concert earlier tonight, George is interviewed for the Japanese Fuji TV programme Super Time, an item aired the following day.
Saturday December 14
The TBS TV Network, J-Wave FM Radio Station, and Shogakkan Publishing sponsor the three shows in Tokyo at the Dome Stadium.

During the encore, on the final night of the tour, George's son Dhani and Nick Roylance, the son of George's good friend Brian Roylance, the proprietor of Genesis Publications, join George, Eric and the band on stage, where they perform 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' and 'Roll Over Beethoven'.
Wednesday December 18
At 12:15pm (Japanese time), George, along with Olivia, Dhani and Eric board a plane (JAL 401) at New Tokyo International Airport and return home to England. On this day, CNN in America runs a report on George's tour, including a report in Showbiz Today, which shows live concert footage of the songs 'Taxman' and 'If I Needed Someone' and a brief interview with George, recorded on Thursday December 12. Asked why he went back on the road, Harrison replies: "I had to do something when I gave up smoking!" (It is reported that the tour has grossed approximately £9.7 million.)
At the start of the month, while George is on tour in Japan, a suit is filed on his behalf in the Los Angeles Superior Court for defamation of character, seeking more than $200 million in damages from the Florida-based tabloid newspaper The Globe. Harrison is most upset by a report, printed in an edition of the paper in September, which portrays him as a "Devotee of Adolf Hitler, a Nazi sympathiser and has a huge Nazi flag hanging in the front of his home." The article also claims that: "George parades around his little England village in a storm trooper's uniform." Bert Fields, George's solicitor, remarks to the press: "That is all totally false. George deplores Nazism and everything that Hitler stood for. He is very very upset by the story and decided to sue after The Globe refused to print a retraction." Incidentally, on Tuesday December 10, the Paramount television programme Entertainment Tonight runs a report on the suit.
In America, reports indicate that Michael Jackson's long mooted animated film Strawberry Fields will be released next summer. Amongst the artists who are expected to appear on the soundtrack singing Beatles songs are Crosby Stills & Nash, Cheap Trick, Cyndi Lauper, Luther Vandross and Jackson himself.
Friday December 6

Paul, George and Ringo do not attend but instead send wreaths.
