From paulmccartney.com, December 7, 2010:
Following a year of massive international-headline-grabbing sellout stadium shows, Paul announces he will bring 2010 to a close with two very special intimate and personal homecoming shows. Paul and his band are planning two spectacular nights of celebrating and rock n’ roll in London and Liverpool to end the year on a massive high just as they did with their only UK show of 2009 last December at London’s O2 Arena.
The first of these two concerts will see Paul return to London’s Hammersmith Apollo for his first full solo show there in 35 years, his last appearance being with Wings in September 1975; Paul first appeared there with The Beatles on December 24th, 1964 for The Beatles Christmas Show. […]
Speaking about the forthcoming shows Paul said: “I always love playing to a home audience and for me it’s the perfect way to end the year. We’ve had great fun with the stadium shows this year and we’re looking forward to the more intimate vibe of these ones. Christmas is the perfect excuse for everyone to let their hair down and rock out. We are looking forward to celebrating with the good people of London and Liverpool.“
From paulmccartney.com, December 12, 2010:
Tickets went on-sale this morning at 10AM for Paul’s two UK December shows. The shows sold out instantly as phone lines and websites were jammed with fans trying to get their hands on tickets for what should be the biggest Christmas parties of the year, as Paul brings 2010 to a close in style. In the process Paul broke records in both London and in Liverpool for the fastest ever sell-out shows at London’s HMV Apollo and Liverpool’s 02 Academy. These concerts will see Paul scale back his massive stadium shows for intimate evenings of rock n’ roll as he performs the best-loved songs in the world.
From Whom The Bell Tells, December 23, 2010:
Despite more heavy snow in the capital, Paul’s fans were out in force the following night too as Macca took to the stage at London’s Hammersmith Apollo for the first time since Wings played there 35 years ago. In what turned out to be the venue’s fastest ever selling show, it was a real treat to see Paul playing such an intimate gig when we’re all so used to seeing him sell out stadiums and wow enormous festivals. Rocking out in the crowd was Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Paul Weller, Frank Skinner, Chris Moyles, Sharleen Spiteri, Marina and the Diamonds, Sir Peter Blake, Twiggy and Mirror newspaper editor Richard Wallace. It was obviously a special moment for Paul himself too, as he looked round on stage and told the audience There are so many memories here. I’m just going to take a moment to take it all in.After another truly amazing show, one reviewer for The Express summed it all up better than I can, saying after over 50 years in the music business, he has an instinctive rapport, making us laugh, dance and even cry in equal measure.Stuart Bell
