PAUL TO PLAY PHILLY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FIVE YEARS



Philly-area music fans will have double the opportunity to see Paul in June. 
Paul is following up his Firefly Music Festival headlining appearance on Friday, June 19 in Dover with a huge Philadelphia show at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday, June 21.
Live Nation made the announcement at 4 p.m. Friday afternoon with the unveiling of a large banner on the side of the Wells Fargo Center bearing the Beatle’s image.
Tickets will hit the market on Friday, May 1 at noon. 

Paul last played Philly five years ago at the Wachovia Center — now known as the Wells Fargo Center — for two dates in August during his “Up and Coming” tour. 
The Wells Fargo Center has been teasing the announcement with a tweet featuring a photo of a Hofner bass — the longtime brand of choice for the recent Kanye West collaborator — beneath the LOVE Park sign.

FIRST US ARENA DATE OF 2015 CONFIRMED

June 21 - Philadelphia, PA - Wells Fargo Center

Following an incredible 2014 which saw Paul McCartney's universally acclaimed 'Out There' tour play 32 shows in 30 cities throughout South, Central and North America, Paul has confirmed June 21 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia as the first U.S. arena date of the 2015 'Out There' tour. Currently tearing through Japan and South Korea, and with confirmed headline slots at Firefly Music Festival June 19 in Dover, DE as well as Lollapalooza July 31 in Chicago, the June 21 date will mark Paul’s first appearance in Philadelphia since the sold out August 14-15, 2010 doubleheader on the 'Up & Coming Tour' that dazzled over 30,000 fans.
Fans registered with PaulMcCartney.com by 7am (EDT) on Monday 27th April will be eligible to purchase pre-sale tickets for Paul's Philadelphia concert through the website at 9am on the same day (27th April).

The 'Out There' tour, as always, features music from the most beloved catalogue in popular music, as Paul performs songs spanning his entire career - as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle. The set list also includes material from Paul's most recent studio album NEW, a global hit upon its release in 2013.

The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity; in just three hours some of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music are relived; music which for many has shaped the very soundtrack of their lives. Over the years Paul and his band have performed in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow's Red Square, Buckingham Palace, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people, played the last ever show at  San Francisco’s Candlestick Park where The Beatles played their final concert, and even broadcast live into space! Featuring Paul's band of the last 10+ years - Paul "Wix" Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) - the show never disappoints.

The tour also uses state-of-the-art technology and production to ensure the entire audience has the best possible experience. With massive screens, lasers, fireworks, unique video content and, of course, the best songs in the world, a Paul McCartney show is so much more than just an ordinary concert. Paul's shows attract a multi generational audience from different backgrounds all brought together by his music.

2015 is already off to an incredible start for Paul. He has appeared on the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards with Rihanna and Kanye West performing their smash hit collaboration 'FourFiveSeconds', treated New York City to an intimate Valentines Day concert the night before appearing on the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special, and more recently inducted Ringo Starr into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. With a sold out tour of Japan and South Korea currently underway and massive US, UK and Europe festival and arena engagements on the horizon, 'Out There' 2015 is sure to be another amazing chapter for a living legend who continues to make history with his every move.

Tickets for the newly announced dates will be on sale Friday, May 1 at 12 noon local time.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, April 28 at 10 a.m. through Thursday, April 30 at 10 p.m.

Keep checking PaulMcCartney.com for further announcements.

CANDLESTICK PARK IS TORN DOWN AFTER 55 YEARS OF LEGENDARY EVENTS INCLUDING THE BEATLES' LAST CONCERT AND TWO WORLD SERIES

Candlestick park, which has been home to the San Francisco Giants and San Francisco 49ers, has been torn down

  • Candlestick park, which has been home to the San Francisco Giants and San Francisco 49ers, has been torn down
  • It opened in 1960, and the last game was played there in Dec 2013 by the 49ers 
  • The area is now set to become houses, a hotel and a shopping center
  • It is where The Beatles played their last concert in 1966 
  • Paul played the last concert at Candlestick Park on August 14, 2014

Candlestick Park is no more.
The iconic sports field, completed in 1960 and home to first the San Francisco Giants and later the San Francisco 49ers, has been torn down to make way for houses, a hotel and a shopping center. 
And in 55 years there was a lot of wind and a whole lot of fog, but there were also some remarkable moments thanks to the one of the greatest to every play football, the music of The Beatles, and one incredibly ill-times natural disaster.

As for baseball, two World Series were played at Candlestick, in 1962 and 1989, with the Giants losing to the New York Yankees and Oakland raiders respectively.
The 1989 World Series went down in history however when during Game 3 a massive earthquake, which measured 7.1 on the Richter Scale, occurred shortly before play began. 
It was later said that the design of the stadium saved the thousands of fans who had turned out for the game.
The Giants left however at the end of the 1999 season, and the 49ers after 2013, and the last appearance at the park came not from an athlete, but a musician.

The Beatles made an unannounced live appearance in January 1969 but their final live concert took place on August 29th, 1966 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, California. Only 25,000 tickets were sold despite the fact that Candlestick Park has a capacity for 42,500 people. A local company called Tempo Productions was in charge of the arrangement and due to the low ticket sales and other expenses this concert resulted in a loss for them. At 9:27pm the Beatles finally took the stage and proceeded to sing 11 songs: Rock And Roll Music, She's A Woman, If I Needed Someone, Day Tripper, Baby's In Black, I Feel Fine, Yesterday, I Wanna Be Your Man, Nowhere Man, Paperback Writer and Long Tall Sally. Knowing that this would be their last concert members of the band took measures of their own to capture their last moments on stage. Each brought a camera and Paul asked Beatles' press agent Tony Barrow to successfully make a rough audio tape recording from the field. The recording of this final concert is now widely circulated on bootlegs.

Paul shut down the stadium with a performance on August 14, 2014.
Making the moment even more poignant was the fact that McCartney had a history with the park, as The Beatles played their last ever commercial concert there on August 29, 1966, almost 50 years earlier.
That tour was marked in controversy as it occurred after John Lennon had commented that the band was 'more popular than Jesus.'

JEFF LYNNE’s PRODUCTIONS WITH THE BEATLES RANK WITH HIS BEST WORK

As the young auteur behind Electric Light Orchestra, Jeff Lynne hardly made his admiration for the Beatles a secret, with his distinctive take on Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound engineering, multitracked studio wizardry and soaring multipart vocal harmonies owing a clear debt to “Abbey Road” and “Magical Mystery Tour.”
So it made sense that Lynne would go on to become the defining producer for the group’s post-1960s diaspora.

Not only has he produced solo work for Paul, Ringo Starr and George, Lynne was behind the boards for the Beatles’ final “new” hit records: “Free as a Bird” and “Real Love,” painstakingly recorded around existing Lennon demo tracks in honor of the Beatles’ massive “Anthology” releases in the 1990s. (The singles reached No. 6 and No. 11 on the Billboard singles chart, respectively.) 
Lynne went on to produce McCartney’s “Flaming Pie” in 1997, netting Macca his highest album chart position (No. 2) since 1982. After producing a one-off remake of “I Call Your Name” with Starr in 1990, Lynne also produced three tracks intended for Ringo’s 1992 comeback album, “Time Takes Time.”

Yet Lynne’s most fruitful Fab Four collaborator proved to be his Traveling Wilburys bandmate Harrison. Teaming with the Quiet Beatle for 1987’s “Cloud Nine,” Lynne oversaw a complete renovation of Harrison’s sound, modernizing it with keyboards and prominent percussion, without ever losing track of its auteur’s signature sound. As Rolling Stone reviewer David Wild put it in his rave review of the record, “If somewhere along the line the Beatle George forgot how to shape a pop record, Lynne … obviously has not.”
Nowhere were those pop instincts keener than on the album’s cover of Rudy Clark’s “Got My Mind Set on You.” Perhaps the simplest song Harrison had cut since “Roll Over Beethoven,” the effortlessly catchy number rose to the summit of the pop singles chart, making Harrison the last Beatle to do so.




The next time Lynne would man the mixing boards for a Harrison album, it would be under far different circumstances. “Brainwashed,” Harrison’s 12th album, had been in production for over a decade, complicated by Harrison’s cancer diagnosis and knife attack in 1999. When Harrison died in 2001, the album was still unfinished; Lynne and Harrison’s son, Dhani, completed it by following the late Beatle’s detailed instructions, releasing it almost a year after his death.
The album, full of often disarmingly gentle meditations on mortality and the transience of life, proved to be a worthy epilogue to Harrison’s career.
“It’s a fitting way to say goodbye,” wrote AllMusic critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine, “every bit as good as (John Lennon’s) ‘Double Fantasy’ and, in some respects, even sweeter.”
The album won Harrison his last Grammy the following year.
