The 2023 edition of the “Got Back” tour by Paul McCartney begins with an intimate arena show in Adelaide. This holds a special significance as Adelaide is the city where The Beatles left an indelible mark in 1964 during their first visit to Australia. At that historic moment, a staggering 350,000 people lined the streets stretching from the airport to Town Hall, all fervently hoping to catch a fleeting glimpse of the legendary band.
Following this momentous kickoff, McCartney’s musical journey takes him to various Australian cities. Melbourne, Newcastle, Sydney, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast are the stages where he will grace with his performances, all of which will take place in grand stadium settings. What adds a touch of novelty is that the shows in Newcastle and the Gold Coast mark McCartney’s inaugural concerts in these specific locations, further elevating the anticipation.
These marked dates not only signify an incredible musical journey but also carry the weight of a significant return. After six years, Paul McCartney is making his way back to Australian shores for live performances. His previous presence in Australia was last noted in December 2017. As the “Got Back” tour unfolds across these Australian cities, McCartney enthusiasts and music lovers in general are in for a spectacular revival of live music from a true legend.
