Tickets to see Paul'striumphant return to perform live at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, PA, on August 14, as part of the Up and Coming Tour, sold out in two minutes, the fastest sell out ever at the Wachovia Center.

By overwhelming popular demand, a second show has been added for Sunday, August 15 at the Wachovia Center and tickets immediately went on sale exclusively through ComcastTIX.com, 1-800-298-4200 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting               1-800-298-4200       end_of_the_skype_highlighting and at the Wachovia Center box office.

"This is the fastest sell-out we've ever had for a concert at the Wachovia Center since we opened the arena in August of 1996," said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko. "This record-breaking sell-out is a true testament to the timeless qualities of Paul McCartney's talents that have entertained music fans in Philadelphia for the better part of nearly five decades."

"It is clear by the response from Philadelphia music fans that Paul McCartney is hot and one show is not enough," said Live Nation President Geoff Gordon. "You've heard the term 'as fast as we could print them,' with this show the ink didn't even have a chance to dry! We're very fortunate that Sir Paul McCartney will now play two shows in Philadelphia this summer - which is one of only two stops in the North East corridor of the United States."

Philadelphia is one of only two cities on the east coast that Paul will visit on the Up and Coming Tour.

In keeping with his headline-making special concerts over the last few years, the tour, which has broken ticket selling records in several other cities, will see the iconic star and his band play unique venues, places and locations; new cities he's never played and familiar markets he's not visited for a while.

Paul last performed at the Wachovia Center on September 22-23, 2005.

Paul's new tour will feature a typically diverse set list, drawing on two hours plus worth of selections spanning the catalogues of The Beatles, Wings and Paul's solo career - including tracks from The Fireman's 2008 album 'Electric Arguments'. Recent Up and Coming shows have featured never-before-played-on-US-soil songs added to the set list, such as 'Ob La Di Ob La Da' as well as other gems dusted off from the extensive and legendary Beatles, Wings and his own solo canon.

The Arizona and California dates in March were Paul's first US shows since his five - week Summer Live '09 tour last year, which was prefaced by a triumphant sold out headline set at the 2009 Coachella festival and a surprise performance for the Late Show with David Letterman on the marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater (inside which The Beatles made TV history decades ago) that drew throngs packing Broadway from Columbus Circle to Times Square.
