Paul McCartney Returns to NZ Shores this December After 24 Years

Get ready to hear the iconic line 'Jai Guru Deva, Om' once again as 21-time Grammy Award-winning artist Sir Paul McCartney brings back his groundbreaking hits to Auckland this summer.

Paul McCartney is irrefutably one of the most successful performers of all time. Aside from being a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, he is also a recipient of 'The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire'. Undoubtedly, his most beloved music catalogue back then gave colour to the lives of generations of fans.

The One On One Tour celebrates McCartney’s entire career - from his earliest work with The Quarrymen through to his most recent collaboration with Kanye West and Rihanna – as well as global treasures from The Beatles, Wings and his solo catalogue. This will be his first New Zealand performance since 1993's 'The New World Tour'.

Featuring McCartney’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 is never anything short of life-changing surprises. This one-off show features a brand new production, as always, utilising state of the art audio and video technology and to ensure an unforgettable experience from every seat in the house.

This Paul McCartney show promises a once in a lifetime evening that transcends and elevates the potential of live music. It's everything any music lover could ever want from a rock show and so much more. Nearly three hours' worth of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music, dozens of songs that have formed the soundtracks of our lives.

McCartney and his band have played an unparalleled range of venues and locations: outside the Colosseum in Rome, Moscow's Red Square, Buckingham Palace, The White House, a free show in Mexico for over 400,000 people, the last ever show at San Francisco's Candlestick Park where The Beatles played their final concert in 1966, and even one performance broadcast live into space!

"We've been waiting to get back to Australia and New Zealand for years and now it's finally happening. It is very exciting. I'm really looking forward to the concerts as we've always had such a brilliant time whenever we've been before so we know we are in for a treat. Can't wait to see you and all rock out together." - Paul McCartney

The One On One Tour launched in the United States in 2016 and saw McCartney play 41 shows across 12 countries to more than 1.2 million people, winning rave reviews from concertgoers and critics alike:

"In spite of the size of the venues, McCartney and his music forge a personal connection with each and every one in the audience." - Popmatters

"McCartney creates a joy that is boundless both onstage and off." - The Washington Times

"He's an artist who defined the past, but he's also an artist unwilling to let go of the future. Rest assured, we're all the better for it." - Consequence of Sound

Experience a once in a lifetime show where you get to see the phenomenal icon Paul McCartney own the stage once again.
