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 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 â€œOb 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.
