‘I’m excited to be ending my year and 2024 tour dates in the UK,’ The Beatles legend said in a statement confirming the four dates. 

‘It’s always such a special feeling to play shows on our home soil. It’s going to be an amazing end to the year. Let’s get set to party. I can’t wait to see you.’ 

One of the most successful singer-songwriters and performers of all time, McCartney is behind the most beloved catalogue in music. 

With a mixture of songs including Hey Jude, Live and Let Die, Band on the Run, and Let It Be, the Paul McCartney live experience features the best of Sir Paul’s solo, Wings and Beatles catalogues. 

His 2022 Glastonbury performance was hailed as “one of the greatest gigs of all time” and “a masterclass from the greatest living cultural figure in this country’s history.” It was also Sir Paul and his band’s 500th show together.

Elsewhere, Sir Paul confirmed his first 2024 live dates and revealed he’ll be taking his tour to Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Peru this October.

The musician has also announced shows in France and Spain. These dates will see him return for his first live performance in Paris in six years.

The wait has been longer for the people of Madrid, where he last played eight years ago, in 2016 at Estadio Vincente Calderon.

Sir Paul launched his Got Back tour in 2022, completing 16 huge shows across the US before performing his history-making set at Glastonbury in June 2022. 

In 2023, he  performed 18 shows as the Got Back tour rocked through Australia, Mexico and Brazil.

According to the 2024 Sunday Times Rich List, Sir Paul is Great Britain’s first billionaire musician after his wealth rose by £50 million to hit the £1 billion figure this year.

He previously claimed the musician top spot in 2023 with a £950million fortune, and again in 2022 when his wealth was put at £865 million.

The new milestone follows his successful 2023 Got Back Tour, the increase in the value of his back catalogue and R&B star Beyoncé covering his song Blackbird, originally released by The Beatles in 1968, on her latest album.
