Sir Paul McCartney to perform in Madrid

Twelve years after his last performance in Spain’s capital, Sir Paul McCartney is set to put on a show once again in Madrid in just over two months’ time.

The singer’s promotor in Spain, Live Nation, has confirmed that this new concert will take place at the Vicente Calderón Stadium, home to Altético Madrid Football Club and with a capacity to hold 55,000 people, on Thursday 2 June at 8.30pm as part of the ex-Beatle’s “One on One” world tour.

The last time that the world famous musician performed in Madrid was on 30 May in 2004, that time at the La Peineta stadium to a crowd of 20,000 spectators, and this performance took place 15 years after the previous one in 1989.

The concert is being held in order to celebrate 50 years of Cadena SER’s “Los 40” top 40 programme and the 40th anniversary since Spain’s leading newspaper El País, one of the concert’s sponsors, was launched.

Tickets will go on sale from Friday 18 March, or from today at 10am for presales.

Up until this moment, the only dates confirmed for this world tour were a handful taking place in North America during April and three concerts due to take place in Dusseldorf, Munich and Berlin from 28 May.

Rumours that the ex-Beatle might possibly hold a concert in Spain began to circulate when mysterious posters of the singer in concert with the slogan, “Madrid, it’s been a long time since we saw each other” began to appear around the city.

During the “One on One” tour, McCartney has promised a new repertoire of songs, with dozens of classics mixed in, and will include hits from when he was a solo artist, his time as a member of Wings, and, of course, from his time in one of the biggest bands in history, The Beatles.

Please check the Live Nation website for more information about tickets from today for presales and from Friday for general public sales: http://www.livenation.es/show/818791/paul-mccartney-one-on-one/Madrid/2016-06-02/es
