Paul McCartney, calling Madrid

Paul McCartney confirms two concerts in Madrid

Last week both Live Nation Spain and WiZink Center published on their networks what clearly seemed like the announcement of a Paul McCartney show in Madrid. The artist appeared on the phone calling the city, looking like he was not being picked up. Well, they have already taken it and today the details of the show are confirmed. Or rather the shows, because there will be two.

The legendary artist will return to Madrid on December 9 and 10, 2024 with his Got Back tour, which began in the United States in 2022. Tickets will go on sale on June 21 at 10 a.m. on, Ticketmaster and El English court. Of course, there will be pre-sales on starting June 19 at 10 a.m. The prices are “from 45 euros + management fees.”

The press release gives details of the repertoire, indicating that “with songs like ‘Hey Jude’, ‘Live and Let Die’, ‘Band on the Run’, ‘Let It Be’ and many more, Paul McCartney’s concerts represent everything any music lover could want and expect from a great rock show. Hours during which some of the best moments of the last 60 years of music history are played: songs from Paul’s solo time, from Wings and, of course, Beatles anthems that were, are and will always be a part of the soundtrack of our lives.

It is also specified which musicians will be there: «With Paul’s longtime band, Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums), and a Constantly updated state-of-the-art audiovisual technology that guarantees an unforgettable experience from every seat, a Paul McCartney concert changes the lives of all those attending his shows. The Got Back Tour also features the Hot City Horns: Mike Davis (trumpet), Kemji Fenton (saxes) and Paul Burton (trombone). “Hot City Horns first joined Paul in 2018 to perform at Grand Central Station before embarking on the Freshen Up World Tour later that year.”

The campaign has been powerfully reminiscent of the subtle announcement of the artist’s previous tour of our country, which consisted of a rather mysterious posting of posters in vinyl stores such as Bajo el Volcán. On that occasion in 2016, the event was held at the already destroyed Vicente Calderón stadium.
