Two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, 21-time Grammy Award winner and recipient of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire Sir Paul McCartney will bring his acclaimed long-running One On One Tour to Australia this December. In a first for both Paul McCartney and Frontier Touring, the announcement was made in a Facebook Live event where McCartney went ‘One On One’ with Australia’s own Tim Minchin to disclose all the finer details of the upcoming tour. Performing in stadiums and arenas in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney, this will be McCartney’s first Australian tour since 1993’s The New World Tour more than two decades ago. Paul McCartney said of the announcement: “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.” 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
