Paul McCartney 2010 Tour Dates- The Beginning

Postby linclink » Mon Feb 22, 2010 5:23 pm

Here's an official press release (read a site with 2 dates listed for Brazil, in 2 different cities, for April)...Glendale Arizona kicks things off...and then a return to The Hollywood Bowl!

Official press release:

Quote:
Paul McCartney has announced the first two dates of his forthcoming, extensive ‘Up and Coming’ 2010 tour. In keeping with his headline-making special concerts over the last few years, the tour will see the iconic star and his band play unique venues, places and locations; new cities he’s never played and familiar markets he’s not visited for a while.

Paul’s first live concert of 2010 will take place in Glendale, Arizona at the Jobing.com Arena on Sunday 28th March. This will be Paul’s first appearance in Arizona since 2005’s mega ‘US Tour’ which saw Paul rock out across America, performing 37 sell-out magical performances. Tickets will go on sale Monday, March 1st at 10am at livenation.com, ticketmaster and Jobing.com Arena Box Office. To charge call 800-745-3000.

Straight off the back of the Arizona date, Paul will return to the legendary Hollywood Bowl for the first time since 1993. Paul first appeared at the Bowl with The Beatles 46 years ago in August 1964 and then again a year later in August 1965. These shows were recorded for a live album (The Beatles At Hollywood Bowl) that was not released until May 1977. As with all The Beatles live shows, the technological limitations of the day found the band overpowered by the screams of female fans. Decades later the crowds are just as loud but superior technology now allows Paul to overpower the screams, and overpower them he does! Macca’s live shows have reached a new legendary status in recent years, garnering unprecedented reviews from fans and critics alike wherever he goes.

These 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 CBS’ 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 show will feature a typically diverse set list drawing on 2 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’.

Paul finished 2009 on a high when he brought his ‘Good Evening Europe’ tour to a close on the 22nd of December with his only UK show at London’s O2 Arena. 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 traveled 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.”

More live shows to be announced soon. Keep checking.
Om Namah Shivaya !!!!

Yeah expect the same songs, but in a different order. Though I wish he did some 1974-1979 Wings material.

If it's the same old typical setlist I'll pass on this tour just like I did on the last one.

McCartney needs to change his setlist!

Myself, I just saw Paul for the first time on the Summer Live '09 Tour in Washington. I must say I will remember that the rest of my life, I was so excited. If he comes close to where I live again, guess I will have to pack it back up and hit the Lonely Road lol and see him again. No matter the set list.

Bigger question is, how is Paul's Ticket sales going to be when the day of his concert is also the same day as Wrestlemania 26 in the same area?
These are the days of miracle and wonder....

I was wondering why they would have two events in the same area ... or are they close to each other -- that is just asking for a major traffic jam. I thought he was going to place some different songs from what I read.
