New ‘Out There!’ tour launched in Belo Horizonte (spoiler)

  • Source: paulmccartney.com

Last night, Saturday 4th May, Paul thrilled a sold out audience of 55,000 people in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The show at the massive Estadio Mineirao marked the opening of his all new "Out There" tour, which will travel across six countries in the coming months.

The show opened with Eight Days A Week, which Paul had previously only played live once with The Beatles in 1965. The setlist included many more treats for the fans with the first live performances of Beatles classics Your Mother Should Know, Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite!, Lovely Rita and All Together Now. Paul also performed his solo classic Another Day for the first time since 1993. Wings favourites Listen To What The Man Said and Hi, Hi, Hi were also added to the setlist having never been performed at a Paul McCartney solo show before. We Can Work It Out was also added back into the setlist, Paul last performed it at the Glastonbury Festival in 2004.
 
The show was packed with Paul’s biggest hits spanning his career that have become firm live favourites in his shows including Band on the Run, Hey Jude, Live and Let Die, Yesterday and Let It Be.

The brand new production, which fills over 31 trucks worth of equipment, also saw spectacular lasers and lighting, huge pyrotechnics, state of the art video displays and a special riser that saw Paul raised up 20ft above the stage to perform Blackbird and Here Today acoustically on his own. During Hey Jude the audience held up home made ‘Thank You’ signs, a surprise for Paul organised by fans on social network sites.

The city of Belo Horizonte gave Paul a warm reception with billboards across the town welcoming him. Fans camped outside the stadium in the days running up to the show in order to secure the best position when the doors opened. Local papers declared ‘Beatlemania’ had come to Brazil as Paul’s every move since landing in the city on Friday morning became headline news with hundreds of fans lining the streets around the hotel he was staying in.

Last year local fans had started their own petition on Facebook to get Paul to play in Belo Horizonte. After securing the endorsement of thousands of residents the petition was delivered to Paul’s London office. One of the fans, Adriana Mundo (28), who had supported the petition said: “When we heard Paul was coming here we couldn’t actually believe it. It’s a dream come true for us. We’ve never had anything like this here before. It’s such an honour for our city.”



At the end of his show Paul got the girls up on stage from the audience who originated the petition – Priscila Brito (27), Luisa Mattos (25), Camila Flores (25) and Cecilia Cury (21) – who were shocked by the recognition they received from their idol. Paul publicly thanked the girls and also signed Cecilia’s Beatles tattoo.

Next stop Goiania...

Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; many of us have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to swap strategies with other folks, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.

The core of your writing whilst appearing agreeable at first, did not really sit very well with me personally after some time. Someplace within the sentences you managed to make me a believer unfortunately only for a while. I however have got a problem with your jumps in logic and one would do well to help fill in those gaps. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I could undoubtedly end up being impressed.

Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one! It`s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!

Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren`t loading correctly. I`m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I`ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.

I know this if off topic but I`m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I`m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I`m not very web smart so I`m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

Woah! I`m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It`s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it`s tough to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appeal. I must say you`ve done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Chrome. Superb Blog!
