History met history last night backstage at the Verizon Arena in Little Rock, AR as Paul McCartney met Mrs. Thelma Mothershed Wair and Ms. Elizabeth Eckford of the Little Rock Nine.

As young students who struggled against segregation, enrolling in the previously all-white Little Rock Central High School in 1957, the Little Rock Nine introduced a young Paul to the civil rights movement and inspired the lyrics of “Blackbird.”

First Ever Grand Rapids Appearance

He’s conquered some of the largest venues on the earth, set numerous records across the globe, cemented a singular position in music history, and now he sets his sights on Grand Rapids. Paul McCartney is set to make his first ever Grand Rapids appearance at Van Andel Arena this summer. McCartney brings his brand new “One On One” Tour to West Michigan on Monday, August 15, 2016 at 8:00 PM.

As with the launch of every new Paul McCartney tour, One On One has unveiled a dazzling re-designed set, and dozens of classics from the most beloved catalog in popular music, spanning Paul’s entire career–as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle—and no shortage of surprises.

Having opened April 13 to rave reviews, One On One is the first new Paul McCartney tour since the juggernaut that was Out There came to its stunning conclusion on October 22, 2015 with Paul’s first ever concert in Buffalo, NY. Out There’s finale capped off an incredible 2015, in which the tour played 27 shows in 22 cities throughout the world, with highlights including Paul’s historic debut in South Korea—where the crowd at Seoul Olympic Stadium’s refusal to stop singing the refrain to “Hey Jude” literally forced Paul to reprise the song in the first encore, playing that signature bassline live for the first time—three nights at the Tokyo Dome and one at Budokan, a sold out stand at Paris’ majestic Stade de France, more than a dozen packed arena shows across the U.S., UK and Europe, and triumphant headlines at festivals such as Firefly, Roskilde, and Lollapalooza in Chicago—the latter a tour de force performance for a 100,000-strong crowd featuring a guest appearance from Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard on “Get Back.”

The Paul McCartney live experience is everything any music lover could ever want from a rock show—and so much more: Nearly three hours worth of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music, dozens of songs that have formed the soundtracks of our lives. Paul and his band have played an unparalleled range of venues and locations: outside the Coliseum in Rome, Moscow’s Red Square, Buckingham Palace, The White House, a free show in Mexico for over 400,000 people, the last ever show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park where The Beatles played their final concert 1966, and even one performance broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul’s band of the last 10+ years – Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) – the show is never anything short of life-changing.

The One On One Tour features a brand new production, as always utilizing state of the art audio and video technology to ensure an unforgettable experience from every seat in the house. Employing massive screens, lasers, fireworks and, of course, a staggering selection of the best songs ever written or performed, every Paul McCartney show promises a once in a lifetime evening that transcends and elevates the potential of live music.

Paul McCartney and his music need no introduction. Together with three of his friends, he changed the cultural landscape forever.

And Paul’s accomplishments since then as a member of Wings and a solo artist make for a staggering body of work that stands proudly alongside those eight sensational years with The Beatles.

Pure McCartney, a new compilation of his solo, Wings and Fireman work, celebrates that fact, showcasing 67 highlights from one of the most-revered catalogues in music – from McCartney in 1970, his debut solo album, right through to “Hope For The Future”, his 2014 track taken from Destiny, the most-anticipated video game of the last decade. Not only is Pure McCartney a monumental mixtape of some of popular music’s most memorable moments from 1970 to the present day, it also features curios for the superfans and some of Paul’s personal favorites—all handpicked by the man himself..

“Me and my team came up with the idea of putting together a collection of my recordings with nothing else in mind other than having something fun to listen to,” Paul says of this project.

“Maybe it’s to be enjoyed on a long car journey or an evening at home or at a party with friends? So we got our heads together and came up with these diverse playlists from various periods of my long and winding career.”

As a songwriter Paul has never stood still, dipping his toe in countless genres and styles. Pure McCartney is testament to that fact. From the songwriting masterclass of “Maybe I’m Amazed” and adventurous, three-songs-in-one of “Band On The Run” to the irresistible groove of “Say Say Say” and ahead-of-its-time electronica of “Temporary Secretary”, described by NME when compiling a list of the greatest ever songs as “not so much ahead of its time, but out of it altogether”, Pure McCartney charts the unstoppable adventures of McCartney’s unique and eclectic songwriting talents and shines a light on his post-Beatles artistic achievements.

“The word ‘career’ is a bit misleading because to me it has been more like a musical adventure than a proper job,” says Paul, reflecting on the Pure McCartney tracklisting. “It pleases me, and often amazes me, that I’ve been involved in the writing and recording of so many songs, each of them so different from the others.”

Paul’s unparalleled career has seen his music break global chart records, win countless awards, fill stadiums around the world and become the soundtrack to millions of people’s lives across generations.

PAUL McCARTNEY

ONE ON ONE
Second Minneapolis Date Added Due To Popular Demand

May 4 & 5 – Minneapolis, MN – Target Center

Due to the overwhelming response to yesterday’s announcement of his May 4 date at the Target Center, Paul McCartney has confirmed a second Minneapolis stop on his brand new One On One tour.

On May 5, Paul will play a second night the Target Center—added to satisfy incredible demand for tickets to Paul’s first Twin Cities engagement since his legendary sold out August 2, 2014 evening at Target Field.

As with the launch of every new Paul McCartney tour, One On One promises to unveil a dazzling re-designed set, dozens of classics from the most beloved catalog in popular music, spanning Paul’s entire career–as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle—and no shortage of surprises.

One On One is the first new Paul McCartney tour since the juggernaut that was Out There came to its stunning conclusion on October 22, 2015 with Paul’s first ever concert in Buffalo, NY. Out There’s finale capped off an incredible 2015, in which the tour played 27 shows in 22 cities throughout the world, with highlights including Paul’s historic debut in South Korea—where the crowd at Seoul Olympic Stadium’s refusal to stop singing the refrain to “Hey Jude” literally forced Paul to reprise the song in the first encore, playing that signature bassline live for the first time—three nights at the Tokyo Dome and one at Budokan, a sold out stand at Paris’ majestic Stade de France, more than a dozen packed arena shows across the U.S., UK and Europe, and triumphant headlines at festivals such as Firefly, Roskilde, and Lollapalooza in Chicago—the latter a tour de force performance for a 100,000-strong crowd featuring a guest appearance from Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard on “Get Back.”

The Paul McCartney live experience is everything any music lover could ever want from a rock show—and so much more: Nearly three hours worth of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music, dozens of songs that have formed the soundtracks of our lives. Paul and his band have played an unparalleled range of venues and locations: outside the Coliseum in Rome, Moscow’s Red Square, Buckingham Palace, The White House, a free show in Mexico for over 400,000 people, the last ever show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park where The Beatles played their final concert 1966, and even one performance broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul’s band of the last 10+ years – Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) – the show is never anything short of life-changing.

The One On One Tour will debut a brand new production, as always utilizing state of the art audio and video technology and to ensure an unforgettable experience from every seat in the house. Employing massive screens, lasers, fireworks and, of course, a staggering selection of the best songs ever written or performed, every Paul McCartney show promises a once in a lifetime evening that transcends and elevates the potential of live music.

Tickets for the newly announced dates will be on sale March 21 at 10am local time.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets in Minneapolis before the general public beginning Thursday, March 17 at 10am local time through Sunday, March 20 at 10pm local time.

Paul McCartney has confirmed the newest date of his brand new One On One tour.

On May 4, Paul will return to Minneapolis to play the Target Center—his first appearance in the Twin Cities since the August 2, 2014 performance at Target Field that drew a capacity crowd and unanimous critical raves including:

“He is the joyful one, the generous one, the ageless one.”–MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE

“Wildly entertaining… drew everyone from retired boomers to squealing teenagers.”—ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS

“With absolutely zero to prove musically, Paul McCartney’s grit and endurance have become his greatest artistic strength.”–MINNEAPOLIS CITY PAGES

“He delivers the best – and longest – concerts of any singer. It was an incredible show, and the 45,000-plus fans on hand will be talking about attending this show for years to come.”—EAU CLAIR LEADER TELEGRAM

“There are only a handful of artists out there who can play a marathon three-hour set and leave the audience wanting more… performed most of the show like a superhero… appealing to the tastes of every last one of the multi-generational fans in the audience… there was indeed something magical about McCartney’s summer rendezvous with Minneapolis”.—THE CURRENT
