[photogallerylink id=42486 align=left]Kicking off July 15 and 16 with McCartney’s first ever shows at Yankee Stadium in New York, the On The Run tour’s start marks nearly two years to the day since Paul’s legendary July 17, 18 & 21, 2009 Citi Field concerts, immortalized on the Grammy-winning gold-certified Good Evening New York City CD/DVD.
McCartney’s Wrigley Field gig will likewise be a hugely anticipated return to the city that has hosted historical performances by Paul in the past: The July 31 show will be his first visit to Chicago since 2005.
Every one of this summer’s On The Run dates can safely be predicted to feature nearly three hours of the world’s most familiar and beloved music, with hits, deep cuts and surprises spanning McCartney’s unrivaled catalogue of Beatles, Wings, solo and Fireman classics.
McCartney’s recently completed Up and Coming Tour played over three dozen shows to more than 1,000,000 fans from its March 2010 start through its June 10, 2011 conclusion at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, drawing arguably the most enthusiastic audiences and critical notices of McCartney’s peerless near-50-year career, including:
McCartney kicked off his 2011 live agenda last month with his first ever show in Peru, his first Chilean gig since 1993, and two blockbuster shows at Rio de Janeiro’s Estadio Olimpico Joao Havelange, which also resulted in the first ever concert to be broadcast live on the internet throughout Latin America–allowing over 1.5 million fans who were unable to snap up one of the 100,000 tickets to share in the magic.
