Paul McCartney

Second Hollywood Bowl Show Added Due To Pre-Sale Demand!

Due to unprecedented demand, a second show - March 31 - has been added for Paul McCartney's Up and Coming Tour at the Hollywood Bowl. Tickets will be available to American Express cardholders exclusively now through Saturday, February 27 at 10 p.m. The public on sale for both the March 30 and 31 dates remains Sunday, February 28 at 10 a.m.

McCartney's extensive Up and Coming 2010 tour will begin Sunday, March 28 at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona--Paul's first appearance in Arizona since 2005's completely sold out 37-date US Tour. In keeping with his headline - making special concerts over the last few years, the Up and Coming tour will see McCartney and his band play unique venues, places and locations in both new cities he's never played and familiar markets he's not visited for a while.

The March 30 and 31 Hollywood Bowl shows mark McCartney's first shows at the legendary venue in 17 years. Paul first appeared at the Bowl with The Beatles 46 years ago in August 1964 and then again a year later in August 1965, shows that were recorded for a live album (The Beatles At Hollywood Bowl) not released until May 1977.

The Arizona and California dates will be 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. The 'Summer Live '09 tour began in earnest with an already legendary inaugural run of shows at New York's Citi Field Stadium, the site of the former Shea Stadium where The Beatles played the 1965 concert that set the precedent for the modern day stadium rock show. Critics hailed the Citi Field performances, seen by over 100,000 people, as the concert experience of a lifetime. Those performances were immortalized on last year's RIAA gold - certified multi - disc CD/DVD Good Evening New York City.

The new show will feature a typically diverse set list drawing on 2 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. There will be some never-before-played-on-US-soil songs added to the set list as well as the US live premiere of '(I Want To) Come Home', Paul's Golden Globe nominated track from the film Everybody's Fine.
