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. […]

Paul McCartney and his band support Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, an annual global campaign to increase awareness of the disease.  Paul McCartney’s ‘One On One’ world tour has taken him to Brazil this month and in support of the campaign Paul and his band have been wearing pink wristbands on stage at his sold-out stadium shows.  By wearing pink wristbands Paul and his band are helping to convey an important public health message to his audiences.   The mission of the campaign is to help all effected by breast cancer through education, early detection, treatment and support services.

Porto Alegre, Brazil (show night) – Friday, October 13

Life on the road can be physically demanding. Paul puts his heart and soul into his shows and he needs to keep in the best of shape so on tour he tends to go to the gym for around an hour in the morning. As you can imagine, hotel guests are often a bit freaked out to find themselves on a treadmill next to him or catching sight of him in the gym doing headstands! On show days he will usually head to the venue after a late lunch and go straight to the stage for soundcheck. I’ve talked about these before but they tend to be very comprehensive; almost a gig in themselves. When it is over he will stay on stage with the band and, in a huddle, they will go over the setlist for that evening’s show. Then it is back to the dressing room for any key meetings with the team, if needed, before always taking an hour’s language lesson. Even with several shows in the same country, like these four shows in Brazil, he will spend an hour in each location brushing up the basics and familiarising himself with local expressions and phrases to share with the audience.

After his lesson, Paul dresses and readies himself for the show, then he might meet local dignitaries, officials and VIPs – wherever the tour goes, we get hundreds of meet-and-greet requests. Then it is off to catch up with the band, warming up with an acoustic version of a track to get the vocals and harmonies in prime condition. They walk to the stage together, and in some of these mega stadiums, that can be a good five to ten minutes.

Friday the 13th may be considered unlucky by some, but it certainly isn’t for Paul and his Brazilian fans. Everyone laps it up. “Not even the rain could disrupt the historical musical celebration led by the former Beatle on Friday night,” proclaims the front page of Zero Hora newspaper following Paul’s first concert in Brazil in three years.

It continues: “From the opening chord that introduced the concert from A Hard Day’s Night to the final euphoric finale of ‘The End’, Paul owned the stadium, travelling through time presenting the past and the future of popular music – of which he is one on the main and most creative builders.”

With the Brazilian leg up and running now there was more good news following the concert – Paul had set a new attendance record.  He’d taken this honour from some other musician who also happened to be called Paul McCartney – set in 2010!
