About

From paulmccartney.com, For Whom The Bell Tells, December 14, 2017:

“Seeing the ex-Beatle live is an un-missable experience that every music fan needs to enjoy” Rolling Stone Brazil

Paul christened the gigantic Allianz Parque stadium in 2014 when the ‘Out There’ tour rolled through town. As a tribute to this, the stadium staff have built a special area they’ve called “McCartney’s Cavern” in the dressing room area which was a very cool surprise for Paul and the team for their return visit.  The door to McCartney’s Cavern has a plaque which reads: “Allianz Parque is honoured to have opened its doors for the first time in 2014 by Sir Paul McCartney.  Allianz Parque is eternally grateful for the unforgettable moments.  Thank you Sir Paul.”

The mutual love between Paul and the city of Sao Paulo is evident. One of the most magical moments of the night that stands out as a special memory is the way the stadium lights up with the glare of cell phone screens during ‘Let It Be’.

A couple of notable audience members at this show are Noel Gallagher and Bono who watched like awestruck schoolboys from the side of stage, as spellbound as the rest of us in the stadium. As they were in the same place at the same time, Bono called Paul to see if he could come along to the show. Following the gig, Paul hosts drinks at the hotel with Bono and Noel raising a glass and hanging on his every word. Quite surreal.

During his stay in Sao Paulo, Paul McCartney wrote the song “Back In Brazil“, which would be released on his 2018 album “Egypt Station“.

I was in Sao Paulo and I had a day off. And I was just in the hotel room on my own. And I just got this feeling “it would be great to write a song”. I’m in Brazil, I’m feeling the spirit, looking out at Sao Paulo, high above the city, thinking about all the resilient people who are out there. And the way the Brazilians love music. So I just got this little vibe going, put the chords to it. And then the song came, you know, this little story about a girl “back in Brazil”. It almost wrote itself.
