The two shows would be the first McCartney shows in South America on this new tour. He has a pair of shows scheduled for the beginning of the month in the U.S. and another pair at the very end of the month in Germany and Paris, but nothing at all announced in between. Fifteen shows have been officially scheduled for the burgeoning tour, including two rock festival shows in Europe. The One on One tour is set to open April 13 in Fresno, California, at the Save Mart Center, his first ever concert in that city. Tickets for all the U.S. One On One shows are available here.
All of the concerts announced so far by the former Beatle have been in North America and Europe. The newest shows, that were announced just this morning, are at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 4 and the Accor Arena in Paris, France on May 30. McCartney played Minneapolis at Target Field most recently in 2014 and the Stade de France in Paris last year. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported the new show would mark the seventh time McCartney has played Minneapolis, including with the Beatles.
Pre-sales for tickets for American Express card members for the Minneapolis show begin at 10 a.m. local time Thursday and run through 10 p.m. local time March 20. Pre-sales for both European shows in Spain and France will go on sale at 10 a.m. local time Thursday.
