These new dates are in keeping with Paul’s huge headline making concerts over the last few years, where the world’s biggest rock star has played to millions of people across the globe. These concerts have taken Paul to places he’s never been before, unique settings, venues and locations, and these new dates are no exception.
The Arizona and California dates will be Paul’s first US shows since his five - week Summer Live ‘09 tour last year, which was prefaced by a triumphant sold out headline set at the 2009 Coachella festival and a surprise performance for the Late Show with David Letterman on the marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater (inside which The Beatles made TV history decades ago) that drew throngs packing Broadway from Columbus Circle to Times Square. The ‘Summer Live ‘09′ tour began in earnest with an already legendary inaugural run of shows at New York’s Citi Field Stadium, the site of the former Shea Stadium where The Beatles played the 1965 concert that set the precedent for the modern day stadium rock show. Critics hailed the Citi Field performances, seen by over 100,000 people, as the concert experience of a lifetime. Those performances were immortalized on last year’s RIAA gold - certified multi - disc CD/DVD Good Evening New York City.
The new tour will feature a typically diverse set list, drawing on two hours plus worth of selections spanning the catalogues of The Beatles, Wings and Paul’s solo career - including tracks from The Fireman’s 2008 album ‘Electric Arguments’. There will be some never-before-played-on-US-soil songs added to the set list, as well as the US live premiere of ‘(I Want To) Come Home’, Paul’s Golden Globe nominated track from the Robert De Niro movie ‘Everybody’s Fine’.
UK and Ireland Dates
Paul's first UK and Ireland appearance of 2010 will take place in Dublin at the RDS on Saturday 12th of June, six months after Paul’s sell-out show at The O2 in December as part of the ‘Good Evening Europe’ tour. The next day will see a Paul McCartney first when he headlines the Isle Of Wight Festival on Sunday 13th of June; his second ever UK festival after his now legendary headline appearance at 2004’s Glastonbury. Next up Paul will head to Scotland for, amazingly, his first ever UK standalone stadium show on Sunday 20th June at Glasgow’s Hampden Park, almost exactly 20 years to the day since Paul last played in Scotland. On Saturday 26th June Paul plays his first show in Wales in 31 years when he brings the tour to Cardiff’s massive Millennium Stadium. He last toured Wales with Wings in 1979. Finally Paul will appear as the headline act in London at this year’s Hard Rock Calling festival. Paul has appeared in Hyde Park twice before - the first time was when he opened and closed 2005’s Live 8 concert and the second when he came on stage as a surprise guest last summer at Neil Young’s show to perform The Beatles anthem ‘A Day In The Life’.
The UK got a recent taste for Paul’s live show last Christmas when he brought his 2009 ‘Good Evening Europe’ tour to a climactic and memorable finale at London’s O2 Arena, his only UK show of 2009. Reviews for the show were phenomenal and prove that Paul McCartney is a live experience that no-one should miss. “The man is living history and the way he continues to bring new energy to his past is incredible,’ reported the UK’s largest Sunday paper, News Of The World. The Telegraph exclaimed, “Paul McCartney used his only UK concert of 2009 as a showcase for an epic display of back-to-back basics music-making. Armed only with his four-piece band and the greatest collection of hits in pop history, he travelled back and forth across the decades like the Dr Who of rock and roll. Whatever elixir the 67-year-old Macca is running on remains a mystery, but he seems to get a huge charge from performing to an audience, especially one that is bombarding him with waves of adoration.”
Paul’s live shows have reached a new legendary status in recent years garnering unprecedented reviews from fans and critics alike wherever he goes. He’s pushed boundaries, performed to millions and made global news with monumental shows including performances in Red Square, Russia, outside the Coliseum in Rome, performing live into a NASA space station, the largest outdoor show ever in the Ukraine, his first visit to Tel Aviv and last year his ‘Summer 09’ tour began in earnest with an already legendary inaugural run of shows at New York’s Citi Field Stadium, the site of the former Shea Stadium where The Beatles played the 1965 concert that set the precedent for the modern day stadium rock show. Critics hailed the Citi Field performances, seen by over 100,000 people, as the concert experience of a lifetime.
This summer’s run of UK live shows are set to be the hottest tickets of the year. Don’t miss your chance to be there and witness some of that marvellous Macca magic.
