Gets ‘ONE ON ONE’ with Brazil
New 2017 concerts announced

Paul McCartney will be getting ‘One On One’ with Brazil this October.

Speaking about his forthcoming visit Paul said: “When people ask me what it’s like to play in Brazil the one thing that always stands out for me is the audiences. The Brazilians are wild and we love it.  We know the shows are going to be huge parties with everyone getting involved. I can’t wait to get there and rock out!”

Paul’s new ‘One On One’ Tour launched in the US in 2016 and saw him play 41 shows across 12 different countries to over 1.2 million people, winning rave reviews from both concert-goers and the media. The final run of shows in 2016 concluded with Paul’s headlining performance at the now legendary ‘Desert Trip’ festival in the US. Last week saw Paul play his first shows of 2017 in Japan as well as announcing new North American dates for this summer. Paul played four huge sell out shows in Tokyo winning rave reviews.

On his first visit to Brazil in 1990 Paul set a new world record for the largest concert audience. Over 184,000 people watched him perform at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracanã Stadium. Paul’s last visit to Brazil was in 2014 with his sold out ‘Out There’ tour.

The new ‘One On One’ show includes a dazzling re-designed production as well as previously never performed classics from the most beloved catalogue in popular music.  The ‘One On One’ Tour spans Paul’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. Paul and his band have played an unparalleled range of venues and locations: outside the Coliseum 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 Paul’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.
