Paul McCartney continues to roll out 2016 One On One Tour dates. The iconic British pop-rocker has confirmed a brand new U.S. on Oct. 4 in Sacramento, California, at the soon-to-be opened Golden 1 Center and has also posted a 30-second clip teasing involvement in a heavily rumored mega-festival, slated for Indio, California, at the Coachella Festival grounds in October.
The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer posted the Sacamento show update on May 2 at his official Paul McCartney website. Making his first return to River City in over 10 years, the ex-Beatle will perform the first ever show at the brand new multi-purpose arena.
The 21-time Grammy winner also set the Internet buzzing on Sunday by unveiling a mystery clip merely labelled "October" at his official Twitter account. The brief video begins with a close-up shot of guitar fretboard with the camera gradually pulling back to reveal his instantly recognizable vintage Hofner Beatle bass, accompanied by Macca performing a live cover of The Beatle's Let It Be chestnut "I've Got a Feeling."
McCartney joins a "who's who" list of superstar rock acts to post videos that end in the word "October." Other legendary artists who have hinted at participation in what is being hailed in the media as "Classic Rock Coachella," include: The Rolling Stones, The Who, Bob Dylan, Roger Waters and Neil Young & Promise of the Real. Organizers AEG Live and Goldenvoice have yet to confirm or deny rumors about the festival, but stay tuned here for more details as they happen.
Pre-sales for the Sacramento show begin on Tues., May 3 at 8:00 a.m. PT. Tickets will be going on sale to the general public on Fri., May 6 at 10 a.m PT. For more information, click here.
