Paul McCartney added two new dates, one in the U.S., the other in Europe, on Wednesday to his new summer “One On One” tour. He'll perform in Minneapolis May 4 at Target Center and in Paris May 30 at the Accor Arena. He played Minneapolis most recently in 2014 and is returning to Paris after a show in 2015 at the Stade de France. The two new shows are in addition to the European date added to the tour Tuesday at the Vicente Calderón Stadium in Madrid, Spain on June 2.
The Target Center gave McCartney fans a strong hint Tuesday night that it would be announcing a concert Wednesday morning. “You heard right: We've got a CONCERT ANNOUNCEMENT OF ROYAL PROPORTIONS tomorrow at 8am! Any guesses?,” the tweet said. A local radio station also alerted listeners to a show announcement. Signs were also posted in Paris about the new show there before the official announcement.
Ticket pre-sales for American Express Card Members for the new date in Minneapolis begin at 10 a.m. local time Thursday and run through 10 p.m. local time March 20. Pre-sale tickets for both European shows in Spain and France will go on sale at 10 a.m. local time Thursday. Tickets for all the U.S. One On One shows are available here.
This makes a total of 15 dates now on the One on One Tour. The inaugural show takes place April 13 in Fresno, California, at Save Mart Center. Other North American shows will follow in Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; North Little Rock, Arkansas; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and now Minneapolis, Minnesota, with two others in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The tour will jump to Dusseldorf, Germany at the end of May, then Paris, Madrid, Munich and Berlin from May into June. The tour will also hit two rock festivals in June in the Netherlands and Belgium. His last tour, called “Out There,” played 27 shows in 22 cities in 2015, and ended last October in Buffalo, New York. The tour included concerts in North America and the Far East plus several rock festivals, including Lollapalooza.
