On The Run Tour Continues With Detroit, Montreal, Chicago And Cincinnati Dates

Centre, Montreal
July 31 and August 1 at Wrigley Field,
August 4 at The Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati


“At 69, Mr. McCartney is not saying goodbye but touring
stadiums and playing marathon concerts. Friday’s set ran
two-and-a-half hours, with Mr. McCartney constantly onstage, and it
had 35 songs, not counting a few additional excerpts.

His concerts now are a gentle reminder of his survival and vitality…

He perseveres, and entertains, by directly reconnecting to his
songs across the decades and still having fun.”—THE NEW YORK TIMES

“McCartney’s continued ability to perform such key
material so gracefully makes his shows more than just worthy
entertainment. They’re a kind of public
“The 2½-hour, 35-song set featured five decades
worth of hits without a dud in the batch”—THE NEW YORK POST

“Paul McCartney is many things, a gifted musician, singer and
band leader. Mostly, he is an inspiration.

Last night at Yankee Stadium, McCartney played and played, gave and
gave, for well over two hours. He never stopped singing, playing,
performing and smiling. He loves pleasing crowds.”—THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

“Dude is almost twice my age, and that f***er canbelt, and in
the physical-grace department, my blind guess of his age might have
been more like a very agile 50. I could barely stand in front of my
center field seat, which proved necessary pretty much the entire time…

Changed my life”—THE VILLAGE VOICE

Having just made July 15 and 16 New York City’s music event
of the summer with two sold out shows at Yankee Stadium that kept
approximately 90,000 fans singing along for nearly three hours each
night, Paul McCartney’s On The Run continues this week with six
more North American dates: July 24 at Comerica Park in Detroit, July
26 and 27 at Montreal’s Bell Centre, July 31 and August 1 at
Wrigley Field in Chicago, and August 4 at the Great American Ball Park
in Cincinnati.

Each and every one of this summer’s On The Run dates can
safely be predicted to feature nearly three hours of the world’s
most familiar and beloved music, with hits, deep cuts and surprises
spanning McCartney’s unrivaled catalogue of Beatles, Wings, solo
and Fireman classics.

As on his Live 2009 tour and Up and Coming’s 2010 run and
every Paul McCartney tour since 2002, 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).

Paul’s recently completed Up and Coming Tour played over
three dozen shows to more than 1,000,000 fans from its March 2010
start through its June 10, 2011 conclusion at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, drawing arguably the
most enthusiastic audiences and critical notices of McCartney’s
peerless near-50-year career.

Paul’s 2011 live agenda began with his first ever show in
Peru, and included 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.

In addition to overwhelming levels of critical acclaim wherever
Paul has recently played across North America, South America and the
UK, 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 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.
