Sir Paul McCartney has just announced that New Zealand will be part of his current One On One tour. He will play Auckland December 16th. Mt Smart Stadium.
The Australian/NZ component of the tour was announced in a Facebook Live Q&A hosted by Tim Minchin. A rather painful, weird and unnecessary way of creating some sense of pageantry when all we wanted to know were the details.
Minchin fawned and Macca aw-shucks’d his way through answers.
This will be his fourth time in our part of the world – once with The Beatles, once with Wings and of course a stunning solo show in 1993.
Sir Paul’s voice isn’t as good as it was in 1993. That’s impossible. But anyone wanting to see a living legend will be very lucky to get along and hear him and his incredible band and show. He’s one of the all-time greats. And even saying that doesn’t get close to covering it.
Huge news of course. You can even prepare by seeing the setlist – and what a set!
No details on the release of McCartney III as yet…
