Paul has confirmed the date and venue of his return to New York
City: July 15 at Yankee Stadium.

Paul's historic first ever appearance at the storied Yankee Stadium
will kick off his new 2011 On The Run tour, and marks nearly two years
to the day since his legendary July 17, 18 & 21, 2009 concerts,
immortalized on the Grammy-winning gold-certified Good Evening New
York City CD/DVD.

Having played some three dozen shows to over 1,000,000 fans over
the course of last year's Up and Coming Tour, Paul has been drawing
arguably the most enthusiastic audiences and critical notices of the
beloved Beatles, Wings-man and solo artist's peerless near-50-year
career, including:

"A Paul McCartney concert makes up for every bad show
you’ve ever seen in your life. Seriously... The strange thing
about seeing a Paul McCartney concert is, after three hours, you
actually feel lighter, your feet hurt less — buoyed on by
Paul’s constant smiles and some of the greatest music ever
committed to tape."--AMERICAN SONGWRITER

"Of the 15,000-plus who attended this show, most, I'm
assuming, will put it down as one of their favorite shows ever. It was
one of those shows — certainly the year's best, certainly among
the best ever at the Sprint Center and probably among anyone's shows
of a lifetime. Expectations were high coming in; he exceeded
them."--KANSAS CITY STAR

“It’s hard to think of much in the pop music world more
impressive than a 67-year-old musician holding forth for nearly three
hours, outdoors on a chilly March night, while delivering some three
dozen songs, the least of which would be a career highlight for almost
any other artist.”--THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

“In concert, however, even at 67 years old, McCartney is more
like Superman. Watching him perform 40 vocally demanding songs over
nearly three hours Saturday night... one could only wonder: How does
he do it?”--MIAMI HERALD

"If a reanimated Abraham Lincoln came to town to redeliver the
Gettysburg Address (in its entirety) in the flesh, it wouldn't have
trumped this show... From musicality to sheer spectacle to momentous,
life-affirming jubilation, Paul McCartney's Nashville debut at
Bridgestone Arena Monday night was an all-out master class in rock 'n'
roll showmanship... The band was flawless. The arrangements were
elegant. The pacing was perfect. The production was dazzling, but
never distracting. And most importantly, Sir Paul's charisma and
infectious good nature humanized him, making us feel like we'd made a
new friend, while also getting the privilege of an evening in the
titanic presence of a true rock god. A master."--NASHVILLE SCENE

“McCartney's three-hour, 40-song show was fantastic...
Considering he's been one of the most prominent musicians in the world
since the early 1960s, and has toured extensively over the years,
you'd think McCartney would have long-ago tapped every jug in the
cellar. The fact that he hasn't is just one more reason to appreciate
him.”--PHOENIX NEW TIMES

 

"You hear about all these things, but until you actually sit
just a few yards away and witness McCartney in action for close to
three hours, it's impossible to understand how they all conspire to
make Sir Paul such an absolute whirlwind... What was really amazing
was taking in the full scope of songs that have come out of this
man... It was hard to believe that pop music was ever so good, that
life was so good."--SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

Paul's Yankee Stadium debut can safely be predicted to feature some
nearly three hours of the world’s best loved and most known
music, with hits, deep cuts and surprises spanning his unrivalled
career, from The Beatles, Wings, solo material and The Fireman’s
critically acclaimed album Electric Arguments.

As on his Live 2009 tour and Up and Coming's 2010 run, Paul will be
backed by the combo the LAS VEGAS SUN called "his best band
since, well, the Beatles": Paul "Wix" Wickens
(keyboards, guitar, percussion, harmonica, backing vocals), Rusty
Anderson (guitar, backing vocals), Abe Laboriel Jr. (drums, backing
vocals) and Brian Ray (guitar, bass, backing vocals).

In 2010 Paul performed over 30 Up and Coming Tour dates across
North America, South America and the UK. In addition to overwhelming
levels of critical acclaim wherever the band played, last year saw
many career firsts for Paul. These included rocking The White House in
front of President Barack Obama and his family in June when Paul was
made the first ever British recipient of the prestigious Gershwin
Prize For Popular Song. Paul returned to the White House again in
December (where even the President joked about Paul becoming a regular
there!) to be awarded with a Kennedy Center Honor. Paul ended 2010
with a December 11 visit to Saturday Night Live in New York City
followed by a career landmark first ever performance at Harlem's famed
Apollo Theater on December 13 and three intimate homecoming shows in
the UK. He played the smallest club show of his career at
London’s legendary 100 Club to just 300 people, which made
headlines as far as China. The final two shows were at the Hammersmith
Apollo and at Liverpool’s O2 Academy, both of which broke venue
box office records.

Paul kicked off his 2011 live agenda last month with his first ever
show in Peru, his first Chilean gig since 1993, and two blockbuster
shows at Rio de Janeiro's Estadio Olimpico Joao Havelange, which also
resulted in the first ever concert to be broadcast live on the
internet throughout Latin America--allowing over 1.5 million fans who
were unable to snap up one of the 100,000 tickets to share in the magic.

The PaulMcCartney.com pre-sale will be announced in the coming days.
