"I love Japan. We’ve always had such a great time there and the audiences are just incredible. We can’t wait to get back! It’s always fun to visit new places too and helps to keep things fresh and exciting. Tokyo and Nagoya we are going to rock out and party with you soon." - Paul
Paul announced last month that he’d be making his eagerly anticipated return to the road with his new 'Freshen Up' tour, starting in Canada this September.
These new dates mark Paul’s first series of live dates since the 'One On One' tour that played to some two million fans over the course of 2016 and 2017.
The 'Freshen Up' tour will also be Paul’s first outing following the release of his brand new studio album, Egypt Station, out September 7th on Capitol Records.
This trip to Japan will see Paul visit the city of Nagoya for the first time as well as returning to the legendary Tokyo Dome for two shows.
The 'Freshen Up' tour will begin in Canada in September for four shows before heading to the US for Paul’s headline performance at the 17th annual Austin City Limits festival in October. The tour will then head to Europe in December and Paul will finish the year with concerts in the UK.
The Paul McCartney live experience is everything any music lover could ever want from a rock show: Nearly three hours nightly of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music, dozens of songs from Paul’s solo, Wings and of course Beatles catalogues that have formed the soundtracks of our lives. Paul and his band have played an unparalleled range of venues and locations throughout the Americas, the UK, Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and all points between: 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 in 1966, a 2016 week in the California desert that included two headline sets at the historic Desert Trip festival and a jam-packed club gig for a few hundred lucky fans at Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace, and even one performance broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul’s band of the last 15+ years – Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) –and constantly upgraded state of the art audio and video technology that ensures an unforgettable experience from every seat in the house, a Paul McCartney concert is never anything short of life-changing.
