Paul McCartney announces 2017 fall tour dates in Brazil

Paul McCartney continues to expand his hugely successful One On One Tour schedule. The iconic British rocker will make a triumphant return to Brazil in October for a string of stadium and arena stops.

Macca set a new world's record for the largest concert, during his first stop in Brazil on April 21, 1990 in Rio de Janeiro’s Maracanã Stadium in front 184,000 fans. Sir Paul last visited Brazil for a series of sold out shows during his Out There Tour in 2014.

The fall romp will launch Oct. 13 in Porto Alegre, Brazil, at Estádio Beira-Rio. The “Band on the Run” hitmaker will make stadium stops in Sao Paulo and  Belo Horizonte before wrapping up Oct. 20 in Salvador, Brazil, at Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova.

“When people ask me what it’s like to play in Brazil the one thing that always stands out for me is the audiences,” writes McCartney in a press release. “The Brazilians are wild and we love it.  We know the shows are going to be huge parties with everyone getting involved. I can’t wait to get there and rock out!”

McCartney launched his 2017 tour schedule on April 25 in Japan with a show at Nipan Budokan, followed by a three-night stand at Tokyo Dome. Fans can check out a promo clip of the rock superstar's arrival in Japan above.
