Yesterday we were warned – ol’ Beatles/Wings/Yeezy collaborator Sir Paul McCartney was coming back to Australia for the first time since 1993 later this year.
But were we sure it was true? Weren’t we once sure the earth was flat only to find out it is in fact round? Weren’t we once told that Sir Paul would be here in 2002, but then he cancelled on us because he didn’t think it was appropriate to tour after the Bali Bombings?
Turns out he wasn’t kidding though – see Sir Paul’s a kidder, a mixer, a troublemaker if you will (see: ‘A Hard Day’s Night‘, the film) – and he did in fact take to Facebook Live with Tim Minchin, like he said he would, to reveal all. He then took it down, like a spoilsport, but we got the gist.
He’ll be warming up in Perth on December 2, and then playing dates in stadiums down the east coast: Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney, before popping across the Tasman to Auckland.
Here’s what the ol’ codger had to say:
“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.”
And rock out we will, Sir.
