(HERSHEY, PA) Beatles and McCartney fans take note: Paul McCartney will perform for the first time ever in Hershey as part of his brand new One On One tour that launches today across the country in Fresno, California.
McCartney is scheduled to appear on Tuesday, July 19 in Hersheypark Stadium, one week after he will perform a July 12 concert at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Both dates were added to McCartney’s tour today.
One On One will 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.
One On One is the first new Paul McCartney tour since the Out There tour came to a conclusion on October 22, 2015 with Paul’s first ever concert in Buffalo, NY. Out That tour played 27 shows in 22 cities throughout the world, with highlights including Paul’s historic debut in South Korea—where the refusal of the crowd at Seoul Olympic Stadium to stop singing the refrain to “Hey Jude” prompted McCartney to reprise the song during the first encore, playing that signature bass line live for the first time—three nights at the Tokyo Dome and one at Budokan, a sold out stand at Paris’ majestic Stade de France, more than a dozen packed arena shows across the U.S., UK and Europe, and headlines at festivals such as Firefly, Roskilde, and Lollapalooza in Chicago—the latter a performance for a 100,000-strong crowd featuring a guest appearance from Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard on “Get Back.”
The Paul McCartney live experience is nearly three hours worth of the moments from the last 50 years of music, including dozens of songs that have formed the soundtracks of the lives of many. Paul and his band have played an unparalleled range of venues and locations: outside the Coliseum in Rome, Moscow’s Red Square, Buckingham Palace, The White House, a free show in Mexico for over 400,000 people, the last ever show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park where The Beatles played their final concert 1966, and even one performance broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul’s band of the last 10+ years – Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) – the show is never anything short of life-changing.
The One On One Tour will debut a brand new production, as always utilizing state of the art audio and video technology and to ensure an unforgettable experience from every seat in the house. Employing massive screens, lasers, fireworks and, of course, a staggering selection of the best songs ever written or performed, every Paul McCartney show promises a once in a lifetime evening that transcends and elevates the potential of live music.
