Live Nation and the Boston Red Sox have announced that Paul McCartney has confirmed his return to Fenway Park on Sunday, July 17, 2016. His brand new One On One tour will make its Boston debut as Paul plays a historic fourth show at the storied ballpark.
Having opened April 13 to rave reviews, ‘One On One’ is the first new Paul McCartney tour since the juggernaut that was ‘Out There’ came to its stunning conclusion on October 22, 2015 with Paul’s first ever concert in Buffalo, NY. ‘Out There’s finale capped off an incredible 2015, in which the tour played 27 shows in 22 cities throughout the world, with highlights including Paul’s historic debut in South Korea—where the crowd at Seoul Olympic Stadium’s refusal to stop singing the refrain to ‘Hey Jude’ literally forced Paul to reprise the song in the first encore, playing that signature bassline live for the first time—three nights at the Tokyo Dome and one at Budokan, a sold out stand at Paris’ majestic Stade de France, more than a dozen packed arena shows across the U.S., UK and Europe, and triumphant headlines at festivals such as Firefly, Roskilde, and Lollapalooza in Chicago—the latter a tour de force performance for a 100,000-strong crowd featuring a guest appearance from Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard on ‘Get Back.’
McCartney set the two-day concert box office record at Fenway Park with his August 5 & 6, 2009 doubleheader.
On July 9, 2013 he set the record for the largest single concert attendance in Fenway history.
