About

From Official Paul McCartney website:

Talking about the forthcoming shows in South America, Paul said: “We have beautiful memories of Brazil and Argentina, they are great places to play. The fans are great and it’s very exciting to be returning. I love South American audiences. I always think I have Latin blood because I connect so strongly with their love of music and their love of rhythm and their love of melody, so I always feel like I have a very big bond with South American people and Latin people in general“.

From Mercopress, November 9, 2010:

Former Beatle Paul McCartney is resting in a farm in the outskirts of Buenos Aires preparing for the scheduled shows of Wednesday and Thursday at the River Plate stadium.

Paul arrived at Buenos Aires international airport Ezeiza early Monday in a private Gulf Stream jet with the band and assistants and was immediately driven to the farm. However the rest of the group had to go through Customs and the normal procedure.

On Wednesday the stadium opens at 17:00 hours but the “Up and Coming” Argentine leg tour is scheduled to take off at 21:00 hours. Paul McCartney last played in Buenos Aires 17 years ago.

He arrived in Buenos Aires from the Beira Rio Stadium in Porto Alegre, southern Brazil where he played for 66,000 frenzied fans, some of which had started queuing the week before. […]

Tickets in Argentina in spite of being the most expensive of the current tour were sold a few hours after the announcement Paul would be playing in November. […]

From BBC News Mundo, translated from Spanish, November 11, 2010:

A real fever of fanaticism invaded the Argentine capital on Wednesday. Radios, TV shows, people on the street… Everyone was talking about one thing: the arrival of a legend, Sir Paul McCartney.

The 68-year-old former Beatle plays in Buenos Aires for the first time in 17 years, in two concerts. One that he toasted on Wednesday night and one that will take place on Thursday’s at River Plate Stadium. That same scenario was the one that hosted him during his first visit to the country, in 1993.

The nearly 160,000 tickets that were put up for sale for the shows, which are part of the last leg of their world tour, “Up and Coming Tour”, were sold in a matter of hours. Some fans paid more than $1,600 for the most expensive tickets, including backstage access.

I know people who even borrowed from the bank so they could buy tickets,” Adrián Zinni, president of Rubber Soul, an organization in Rosario, Santa Fe Province, told BBC, which brings together about 400 Beatles fans. “Paul McCartney embodies beatlemania,a passion that, since the band’s formation in the 1960s, has touched the heart of at least three generations,” said Zinni, whose group of supporters includes 12-year-olds and grandparents in their 70s.

The opening act for this concert was Argentine singer and musician Andres Ciro Martinez.

For the famous Argentine announcer Juan Alberto Badía, one of the most recognized followers of the Fab Four, most see this event as an unrepeatable opportunity. “It’s the only chance to see a Beatle live,” he told BBC Mundo to explain the fervour the concerts have generated.

This fanaticism is not only Argentine: it is estimated that many of those who will attend the shows in Buenos Aires come from other Latin American countries that were not included in McCartney’s tour (which has already passed through Mexico, Puerto Rico and Brazil).

We have been contacted by fans from Chile, Peru, Venezuela, Bolivia and Uruguay who plan to come to concerts here,” said Zinni, who claimed that McCartney has a large number of fans who follow him around the world.

Badia himself admits that he has already seen him play in more than five countries. “I’m excited to think about what local fans are going to enjoy,” said the presenter, who began his career promoting the themes of Liverpool’s four.
