Sir Paul McCartney announces first UK tour dates in six years

The Beatles star will play four dates in the UK in December.

Sir Paul McCartney has announced his first UK tour dates in six years as his Got Back Tour continues.

The 81-year-old will play at Manchester’s Co-op Live Arena on December 14 and 15, and at London’s O2 Arena on December 18 and 19.

Sir Paul will also take his Got Back show to France and Spain, after previously announcing upcoming dates in Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Peru this October.

The tour kicked off in April 2022 and has so far made more than $200m (£158m) at the box office.

The shows will see the star play hits from across his career, from the Beatles’ debut single Love Me Do, to Wings’ Band On The Run, and solo hits like Coming Up and Dance Tonight.

It marks his first time performing in the UK since headlining Glastonbury in 2022, when he was joined on stage by Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl.

Sir Paul performed Beatles and Wings songs in a set lasting more than two hours, and was joined on stage by Springsteen for Glory Days and I Wanna Be Your Man.

He also sang alongside a virtual John Lennon, played Something on George Harrison’s own ukulele, and brought fireworks to the festival with Live And Let Die.

Tickets for the UK shows will go on sale on June 21 at 10am.
