New Jersey Date Confirmed

August 7 – East Rutherford, NJ – MetLife Stadium

Paul McCartney has confirmed that his hotly anticipated, brand new ‘One On One’ tour will be coming to New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, home to the New York Football Giants and the New York Jets.

On August 7, Paul will return to New Jersey for the first time in 14 years for one night only. This will be the only tri-state area stop for the leg of this new ‘One On One’ tour, which promises to unveil a dazzling re-designed set, dozens of classics from the most beloved catalog in popular music, spanning Paul’s entire career–as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle—and no shortage of surprises.

From nj.com, August 8, 2016:

The demo cost them just five pounds, Paul McCartney said.

He, John Lennon, George Harrison and their mates huddled around a single microphone, and laid down two tracks in Percy Phillips’ Liverpool studio, a cramped middle-room between a kitchen and living room/electrical shop.

The single, 78 rpm disc they received from the session featured a grainy cover of Buddy Holly’s “That’ll Be The Day,” and an original, written by McCartney and Harrison, called “In Spite Of All The Danger.”

It was the band’s first recording, as The Quarrymen — they wouldn’t become The Beatles for two more years. McCartney had just turned 16. It was 1958.

Stop reading for a moment and take a look around. Think of all that’s taken place since McCartney set off; wars, space travel, dozens of trends in music and culture.

None of that seemed to matter Sunday night at MetLife Stadium, where the sovereign songwriter of pop and rock revisited his “Danger” — inside almost three hours of indomitable Beatles, Wings and solo tunes — and all but seized the clocks on our digital screens.

At 74, McCartney has shown no interest in retirement — this was night No. 29 of his One On One stadium tour — and in 2016, our landscape of political uproar and seemingly endless acts of human brutality may require his voice, his music and his whimsy more than ever. A few extra spins of “All You Need Is Love” could go a long way.

Backed by a wonderfully precise four-piece band, Sir Paul traversed nearly 60 years of his rock standards, and was sure to wrap many in ebullient tales, of their origins, his songwriting process and his undying belief in peace and love. […]
