The new shows bring Paul McCartney's On The Run tour to a
tally of eight North American dates, kicking off July 15 and 16 with
McCartney's first ever shows at Yankee Stadium in New York City, and
proceeding through 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 and 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.

McCartney'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, including:

"Some things are ageless, and McCartney's one of them --
he still radiates youthfulness like a packed playground. At a sold-out
MGM Grand Garden... He was a study in nonchalance, ambling about the
huge arena stage as if he was performing in his living room in front
of a small group of friends."--LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
"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"--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

"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

"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

"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
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).

In addition to overwhelming levels of critical acclaim
wherever McCartney 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.

McCartney 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.
