FOUR SHOWS CONFIRMED FOR 2012: Nov. 11 St. Louis, Nov 14 Houston, Nov. 25 Vancouver - Presales Password


Having kicked off over a year ago with the legendary July 15-16, 2011 doubleheader at New York City's Yankee Stadium that had 90,000 fans singing along non-stop over the course of two near three-hour performances, and more recently gifted Mexico with a historic free May 10 show drawing 250,000 to Mexico City's central plaza, The Zocalo, Paul McCartney's record-breaking On The Run Tour will round out 2012 by returning to North America for four shows: November 11 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis MO, November 14 at Minute Maid Park in Houston TX, November 25 at BC Place in Vancouver BC, and November 28 at Rexall Place in Edmonton AB.

Paul's November 11 show at the Scottrade Center will be his first St. Louis concert in ten years, his last appearance in the city having been on the 2002 Back In The U.S. Tour, and having previously played St. Louis' Busch Stadium twice: once on 1993's New World Tour and in 1966 with The Beatles.

Paul's November 14 date at Minute Maid Park--his first Houston show in nearly seven years--is preceded by a similarly deep history, his first Houston performance being The Beatles' 1965 concert at Sam Houston Coliseum. Paul has since visited Houston in 1976 on the Wings Over America tour, in 1993 on the New World Tour, in 2002 on the Back in the US Tour, and most recently on The US Tour in 2005.

November 25 will end Paul's near 50-year absence from Vancouver, the BC Place show being his first in the city since The Beatles played Empire Stadium in 1964, while November 28 at Rexall Place will be the first Paul McCartney concert ever in Edmonton, yet another On The Run date bringing Paul McCartney to a new locale for the very first time--the latest on a list already including Abu Dhabi, Colombia, Paraguay, Uruguay and more.

Paul McCartney's On The Run Tour has played over 30 dates spanning North and South America, the UK and Europe and the United Arab Emirates. The November 2012 dates are Paul's first in the U.S. and Canada since the summer 2011 run that generated some of the most enthusiastic responses of Paul's peerless career from audiences and critics alike, including:

"Mr. McCartney is not saying goodbye but touring stadiums and playing marathon concerts. Friday’s set ran two-and-a-half hours, with Mr. McCartney constantly onstage, and it had 35 songs, not counting a few additional excerpts... His concerts now are a gentle reminder of his survival and vitality...  He perseveres, and entertains, by directly reconnecting to his songs across the decades and still having fun."--THE NEW YORK TIMES


"In recent years, McCartney has opted for sporadic runs of shows rather than full-on, consecutive-date world tours. In turn, he seems to relish the stage all the more when he does play live... 'I told you we were going to have a good time,' he said during the encore. It was an offhand comment – but it’s still astonishing to see how much McCartney still cares."--ROLLING STONE

"Paul reminds people of their fabulous youth. That's a lot of youth: the crowd was genuinely intergenerational... Changed my life"--THE VILLAGE VOICE

"At times stirring, at times triumphant, and always irresistibly fun, this was Paul McCartney’s night in Detroit... an evening of musical thrills and rich nostalgia for a spirited crowd of 38,000... A little luck, a little magic, a lot of smiles, even a few tears, as McCartney served up a set that launched with a bright 'Hello Goodbye' and wound through nearly half a century of music."--THE DETROIT FREE PRESS

"Paul McCartney could not just let it be Sunday in the first of two concerts at Wrigley Field. He played for nearly three hours, wringing new rivers of passion from songs he’s played hundreds of times."--THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE

"McCartney, a legitimate legend cruised through three hours at Great American Ball Park. His energetic manner that suggested he could have done three more... an inspiring performance... a three-hour triumph."--THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER
