Paul McCartney gets One On One in Australia & New Zealand this December

Two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, 21-time Grammy Award winner and recipient of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire Sir Paul McCartney will bring his acclaimed long-running One On One Tour to Australia and New Zealand this December.

In a first for both Paul McCartney and Frontier Touring, the announcement was made in a Facebook Live event this evening where McCartney went ‘One On One’ with Australia’s own Tim Minchin to reveal all the finer details of the upcoming tour.

Performing in stadiums and arenas in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Auckland, this will be McCartney’s first Australian and New Zealand tour since 1993’s The New World Tour more than 24 years ago.

Paul McCartney said of the announcement;
“We’ve been waiting to get back to Australia and New Zealand for years and now it’s finally happening.  It is very exciting.  I’m really looking forward to the concerts as we’ve always had such a brilliant time whenever we’ve been before so we know we are in for a treat.  Can’t wait to see you and all rock out together." 

The One On One Tour launched in the United States in 2016 and saw McCartney play 41 shows across 12 countries to more than 1.2 million people, winning rave reviews from concertgoers and critics alike:

‘In spite of the size of the venues, McCartney and his music forge a personal connection with each and every one in the audience.’ – PopMatters

‘McCartney creates a joy that is boundless both onstage and off.’ – The Washington Times

‘He’s an artist who defined the past, but he’s also an artist unwilling to let go of the future. Rest assured, we’re all the better for it.’ – Consequence of Sound

Irrefutably one of the most successful singer-songwriters and performers of all time, McCartney has soundtracked the lives of generations of fans with the most beloved catalogue in popular music.

The One On One Tour celebrates McCartney’s entire career - from his earliest work with The Quarrymen through to his most recent collaboration with Kanye West and Rihanna – as well as global treasures from The Beatles, Wings and his solo catalogue – there is no shortage of surprises. 

The Paul McCartney live experience is everything any music lover could ever want from a rock show — and so much more: Nearly three hours’ worth of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music, dozens of songs that have formed the soundtracks of our lives.

McCartney and his band have played an unparalleled range of venues and locations: outside the Colosseum in Rome, Moscow's Red Square, Buckingham Palace, The White House, a free show in Mexico for over 400,000 people, the last ever show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park where The Beatles played their final concert in 1966, and even one performance broadcast live into Space!

Featuring McCartney’s band of the last 10+ years – Paul "Wix" Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) – the show is never anything short of life-changing.

The One On One Tour features a brand new production, as always, utilising state of the art audio and video technology and to ensure an unforgettable experience from every seat in the house. Employing massive screens, lasers, fireworks and, of course, a staggering selection of the best songs ever written or performed, every Paul McCartney show promises a once in a lifetime evening that transcends and elevates the potential of live music. 

Make no mistake – McCartney’s One On One Tour will be a once-in-a-lifetime event. Act quickly to secure your tickets!

Paul McCartney gets One On One with Colombia

The show will take place on Tuesday 24th October at the Atanasio Girardot Stadium in Medellín, Colombia.

"The last time we played in Colombia we had a blast and I always wanted to go back. I'm really excited to get there with my new show this year. Can’t wait to see them all and have a rock party."

Since launching last year, the One on One Tour has played 45 shows in 13 countries to just under 1.5 million people, having a great reception, not only from the audience, but also from the media. The 2016 tour concluded with Paul´s performance at the now legendary Desert Trip festival in the United States. In 2017, Paul McCartney has presented his shows in Japan and announced new shows in North and South America for next semester.

One On One Tour will be Paul McCartney's second visit to Colombia. The first was 5 years ago. The 50-year wait ended the night of April 19th, 2012 and the dream started with the song from 1967: "Magical Mystery”. This show was at the Campín Stadium in Bogotá. 

A night of perfect chemistry, being McCartney probably the greatest music legend that's ever been in Colombia.

The new show One On One, includes a new production and classics never played before. The show includes McCartney’s entire career, from his early work with The Quarrymen, to his most recent collaboration with Kanye West and Rihanna; it also includes timeless music gems from The Beatles, Wings and his catalogue as a soloist. There will be nothing but surprises in the show.

The experience of seeing Paul McCartney live is everything that any music lover could want from a rock concert, and much more: Almost three hours of a journey through the greatest moments of music of the last 50 years, as well as songs that have been part of the soundtrack of our lives. McCartney and his band have presented their show in an unparalleled range of venues and locations: outside the Roman Coliseum, Red Square in Moscow, Buckingham Palace, The White House, the Zocalo of Mexico with a free show for over 400,000 people, the last ever show at San Francisco´s Candlestick Park where The Beatles played their final concert in 1966, and even in a live performance that was broadcasted into space.

Paul and his band of the last 10+ years - Paul "Wix" Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass / guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) - give a show that does not stop changing lives around the world.

The One On One Tour arrives with a new production, as always, with the latest audio and video technology to guarantee an unforgettable experience from every point of the stadium. Huge screens, laser beams, fireworks and, of course, a selection of the best songs ever written and played.

Every Paul McCartney show promises a unique night that transcends and elevates the potential of live music.

"After a long breather we're delighted to play these exclusive shows & showcase a few big surprises. Gun's Swagger is still a favourite album of mine & I hold fond memories of seeing them live many moons ago so it'll be an honour to share a stage with them & have a cracking time."

Their seventh studio album ‘Favourite Pleasures’ is released this September and stands proudly alongside the very best of their work. Across the album’s ten tracks are songs that encompass all that’s good and great about GUN - melodies, instantly memorable riffs, and an unabashed, unrestrained desire to rock out! 

“These songs mean so much to us and now that they’re ready, we can’t wait for people to hear them and see them live...We’ll of course be playing the hits, but these songs stand up to those and then some” said frontman Dante Gizzi. 

Tickets are available Friday at 9AM. Full details here.
