On 28 June 1990 Paul McCartney returned to his home city for a charity concert, appropriately named 'Let It Be Liverpool'.

The enormous concert was held in the King's Dock, on the waterfront adjacent to the Albert Dock. Since then the King's Dock was the venue for Liverpool's summer pops concerts for many years until 2004. A new purpose built stadium, the Echo Arena Liverpool|, opened there in 2008.
