The legendary Beatles bassist and singer Paul McCartney announced new 2023 tour dates. The shows will happen next October, November and December in Australia and Brazil. It will be the first time he plays in those countries after the Pandemic. Named “Got Back”, the tour has 12 scheduled dates so far and he will perform in Adelaide, Melbourne, Newcastle, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Brasília, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and Curitiba.
“I’ve got some good news. We’re coming back to Brazil in November to play for you. We have such great memories from all our visits. I love coming to Brazil because you guys like to rock, sing and party all at once. We’re really excited. Let’s have fun. Let’s rock. Let’s roll. Let’s stomp. Let’s stroll. And Brazil, let’s have a great time,” Paul McCartney said in his last statement.
His band continues the same with Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums).

“Paul has a strong relationship with Brazil – and a huge number of fans from the most diverse generations. In 2017, he was recognized as the best-selling international artist for performances in the country, with more than 1,5 million tickets sold.”
“But the great milestone of the eternal Beatle happened in 1990, when he performed in front of a crowded – and enchanted – Maracanã with 184,000 fans on the night of April 21, breaking at the time the world record for attendance at a concert. In 2023, McCartney will close the tour in December precisely by returning to “his sacred soil”, in the most iconic Brazilian soccer stadium. Magical place for sports lovers, like the artist,” the official statement recalled.
