Continuing in his quest to visit both new and long-unvisited concert markets alike, Paul McCartney has rolled out another date for the summer’s Up and Coming Tour of North America.
The former Beatles bassist and Wings frontman will return to the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia for the first time in five years when he plays the arena on August 14. The performance is the tenth to be announced for Macca’s summer 2010 itinerary so far.
Presales for Sir Paul’s newest concert date begin today, June 11. Philadelphia’s public onsales start a little over a week later on June 21.
According to the Wachovia’s official Web site, ticket prices will be set at $65 and $95 for the upper seating levels of the center. Ticket options will also be available in the club boxes and in the lower and floor sections for $150 and $250.
McCartney last played at Philly’s Wachovia Center during a two-night stand in September 2005, shortly after launching a 26-city tour of the United States. Up until last year when Sir Paul returned to the national circuit with his Summer Live ’09 Tour, that 2005 venture had been his most recent tour in the states.
As it stands now, McCartney’s summer schedule begins July 10 at AT&T Park in San Francisco, CA, and concludes August 18 with the grand opening of the new Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA. The legendary musician opened his 2010 touring season in the spring, when he unveiled a series of five shows in the United States and Puerto Rico.
In addition to his concert plans on this side of the pond, Sir Paul will also complete a brief tour of the UK and Ireland. The two-week jaunt kicks off tomorrow, June 12, at RDS Stadium in Dublin, Ireland, and wraps with a June 27 appearance at Hard Rock Calling in London, England.
