The organizer of a Paul McCartney concert in Bogota faces a fine after the legendary British artist “broke the sound limit” during one of his concerts in the Colombian capital in April.
The ex-Beatle is reported to have exceeded permitted levels of noise during the song ‘Live and Let Die’ with his manager Fernan Martinez now set to be punished by the Department of Environment for Bogota.
Martinez revealed via his Twitter account that the noise from the crowd and McCartney was the main source of the problem.
Por “Coros,gritos,aplausos y pirotecnia durante canción Live and Let Die de Paul McCartney” Alcaldia Mayor de Bog sanciona a empresario.

When interviewed by W Radio, Martinez questioned the decision to impose the punishment and sarcastically questioned what the mayor of Bogota thinks happens at concerts.
He said. “They are punishing public euphoria (…) the sanction has curious components… but there is no complaints or appeals from any of the neighbors of the stadium .”
Martinez then added that he didn’t know if the mayor of Bogota should have asked people “do not clap, bring headphones and do not cry.”
