Macca mania has hit the streets of Mexico City! Paul McCartney’s forthcoming show at the Foro Sol Stadium on Thursday May 27th is set to be a wild night. The people of Mexico have made it clear to their musical hero that they are desperate to see him and can’t wait to be rocked. Tickets for the 60,000 capacity stadium sold out in literally a matter of minutes, setting a brand new record! In fact sources at Ticketmaster Mexico think the tickets could have gone even faster but the technology couldn’t support the overwhelming demand!
Since opening in 1993 the Foro Sol Stadium has been host to some of the most iconic names in music. It’s seen performances from the likes of AC/DC, Aerosmith, Coldplay, David Bowie, Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, The Rolling Stones, The Police and The Killers. The previous record for fastest selling tickets was set by Radiohead last year and before that Madonna in 2008.
Paul’s forthcoming show is part of his all-new ‘Up And Coming Tour’ which kicked off to rave reviews in the US on March 28th. The show on May 27th will be Paul’s first show in Mexico since 2002 when he performed three shows at the Palacio de los Deportes. Paul’s first visit to Mexico was in 1993 on his ‘New World Tour’.
Mexican promoters for the show Bruce Moran at Live Nation and Memo Parra at OCESA commented: “Paul McCartney has made history once again! His upcoming Mexico City show is the fastest sellout in the history of the venue, Foro Sol. Everyone at Live Nation and OCESA are thrilled and honored that Sir Paul has agreed to return to Mexico, and the public has responded to the news in just an overwhelming fashion. Only the thrill of seeing Sir Paul McCartney live at Foro Sol will top the excitement in Mexico today!”
During “My Love“, lots of people in the audience turned their cigarette lighters on, which prompted Paul McCartney to declare at the end of the song:
That thing with the lights, that is so great! You keep in time with the song. Let me see that… Let’s do that!Paul McCartney
And McCartney and his band improvised a two-minutes long song – “Shine A Light.. In Mexico“.
