The former Beatle brought the latest incarnation of his All-Starr band to the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles for the final date of his 2019 tour. Fans lined up early for the sold-out show, some with their young children in tow.

Pepper and the music Long heard at home growing up in rural southwest England, while this taut new 10-song set of original material effectively traverses Long's signature love, loss and heartache milieu.
