Paul McCartney announces One On One Tour

Sir Paul McCartney has confirmed the first dates of his brand new ‘One On One’ tour. The tour will open on April 13th with McCartney’s first-ever appearance in Fresno, CA at the SaveMart Arena. On April 15th, McCartney will play the Moda Center in Portland, OR, ending the near-11-year stretch since his last show in the Rose City on the US Tour in 2005.

The ‘One On One’ tour will then proceed to Seattle, WA, for an April 17th evening at the Key Arena, a return engagement Seattle has been anxiously awaiting since the last notes of the encore featuring the living members of Nirvana that wrapped McCartney’s sold out Safeco Field extravaganza in 2013. On April 19th, McCartney will roll into the Rogers Arena in Vancouver BC, returning to Vancouver for the first time since the magical evening at the BC Place Stadium during the final week of his ‘On The Run’ tour in 2012. And on April 30th and May 2nd, McCartney will visit two more U.S. cities for the very first time, appearing respectively at the Verizon Arena in Little Rock, AR, and the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, SD.

‘One On One’ will then travel to Dusseldorf, Germany on May 28th with McCartney’s first appearance there since 1972. On June 10th, McCartney will return to Munich, over ten years since his last visit. His final German date will take him back to Berlin for the first time since 2009 on June 14th.

PaulMcCartney.com pre-sales begin Thursday, May 10th. Tickets for the North American dates will be on general sale Monday, March 14th at 10 am local time. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Thursday, March 10th at 10 am local time through Sunday, March 13th at 10 pm local time.

As with the launch of every new Paul McCartney tour, ‘One On One’ promises to unveil a dazzling re-designed set, dozens of classics from the most beloved catalog in popular music, spanning McCartney’s entire career – as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle – and no shortage of surprises.

‘One On One’ is the first new Paul McCartney tour since the juggernaut that was ‘Out There’ came to its stunning conclusion on 22nd October, 2015 with Paul’s first ever concert in Buffalo, NY. Out There’s finale capped off an incredible 2015, in which the tour played 27 shows in 22 cities throughout the world, with highlights including Paul’s historic debut in South Korea—where the crowd at Seoul Olympic Stadium’s refusal to stop singing the refrain to ‘Hey Jude’ literally forced Paul to reprise the song in the first encore, playing that signature bassline live for the first time—three nights at the Tokyo Dome and one at Budokan, a sold out stand at Paris’ majestic Stade de France, more than a dozen packed arena shows across the U.S., UK and Europe, and triumphant headlines at festivals such as Firefly, Roskilde, and Lollapalooza in Chicago—the latter a tour de force performance for a 100,000-strong crowd featuring a guest appearance from Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard on ‘Get Back’.
