THE ‘FRESHEN UP’ TOUR 2018
FIRST UK LIVE DATES IN THREE YEARS ANNOUNCED TODAY
December 12th – Liverpool, UK – Echo Arena
December 14th – Glasgow, UK – SSE Hydro
December 16th – London, UK – O2 Arena
“There’s nothing like performing in front of your home crowd, especially when it’s been a while. I can’t wait to finish the year on such a high by partying in Liverpool, Glasgow and London. We’ve freshened up the show since our last time round and we are excited to get to play some of our new songs along side some of the favourites.” – Paul
[…] Paul McCartney announced earlier this week that he’d be making his eagerly anticipated return to the road with his new ‘Freshen Up’ tour, starting in Canada this September. Today, Paul announces his first shows in the UK since 2015 – and his first Scottish concert in almost a decade.
From The Herald, December 15, 2018:
THE Hydro has now had its greatest night thanks to Sir Paul McCartney – or at least that’s what it felt like.
Legend after legend has played the venue since it opened five years ago and while there is no denying that all those shows were special, Friday night with The Beatles star is always going to be difficult to surpass.
Opening up with A Hard Days Night, the atmosphere was electric as he performed a piece of rock n’roll history on the Hydro stage.
He then teased: “Good evening Glasgae! We are going to have a bit of fun here tonight.”
And boy did he deliver on that promise.
A mixture of The Beatles hits, Wings classics and solo material helped compile a set list featuring some of the greatest songs ever made.
Oozing charisma, McCartney rocked as hard as his younger self to perform I’ve Got A Feeling, before taking to the piano for the Wings’ Let ‘Em In. He then joked, “The Postcode Lottery song,” recognising the commercial success the track has had in recent years.
He might be 76 but there was no sign of his age except when it came to showing off his skills as a seasoned performer. The veteran star even proved that the decades of stage shows have been kind to his vocals which sounded exactly the way you would expect on all the classics.
McCartney’s music has a worldwide reach – something he pointed out as he said hello to his fans from Japan. He also joked that a superfan ‘must be loaded’ as he revealed the man had been to 120 of his shows. It’s that audience interaction that makes McCartney likeable and more importantly a British icon.
