Sir Paul McCartney will perform live at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, PA, as part of the Up and Coming Tour on Saturday, August 14. Philadelphia is one of only two cities on the east coast in which McCartney will perform.
'This really is going to be a very special event as Paul has made Philadelphia one of only two east coast cities in which he'll play on this tour' said Live Nation President Geoff Gordon. 'Were lucky he has chosen to perform in front of his Philadelphia fans at the Wachovia Center this August. Philadelphia, this will be a night for all ages, all demographics and all music lovers.'
In keeping with his headline-making special concerts over the last few years, the tour will see the iconic star and his band play unique venues, places and locations; new cities hes never played and familiar markets he's not visited for a while.
Tickets will go on sale on Monday, June 21 at 10 a.m. exclusively through ComcastTIX.com, LiveNation.com, by calling 1-800-298-4200 or in person at the Wachovia Center box office.
McCartney last performed at the Wachovia Center on September 22-23, 2005.
McCartney'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 McCartneys solo career - including tracks from The Firemans 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 Ob La Di Ob La Da as well as other gems dusted off from the extensive and legendary Beatles, Wings and McCartney solo canon. The Arizona and California dates in March were McCartneys first US shows since his five - week Summer Live09 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 Yorks 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 years RIAA gold - certified multi - disc CD/DVD Good Evening New York City.
McCartney finished 2009 on a high when he brought his Good Evening Europe tour to a close on the 22nd of December with his only UK show at Londons O2 Arena. Reviews for the show were phenomenal and prove that Paul McCartney is a live experience that no-one should miss. 'The man is living history and the way he continues to bring new energy to his past is incredible' reported the UKs largest Sunday paper, News Of The World.
The Telegraph exclaimed, Paul McCartney used his only UK concert of 2009 as a showcase for an epic display of back-to-back basics music-making.
Armed only with his four-piece band and the greatest collection of hits in pop history, he traveled back and forth across the decades like the Dr Who of rock and roll. Whatever elixir the 67-year-old Macca is running on remains a mystery, but he seems to get a huge charge from performing to an audience, especially one that is bombarding him with waves of adoration.
