Prepare to be wowed by a living legend. Paul McCartney returns to touring after a three-year hiatus. Last year, Disney+ released The Beatles: Get Back, Peter Jackson’s documentary series that included never-before-seen footage of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr during the Let It Be sessions. McCartney was one of the series’ producers and incorporated songs from its three parts into his setlist. Lyndsey Parker of Yahoo Music described his tour as “a marathon session of his own, playing 36 songs over the course of nearly three hours, all delivered with the same joyous and jocular vibes of Get Back‘s studio jam sessions.” Rest your vocals for the three-hour singalong.

Now, the frontman is on a triumphant return with Robert Randolph, background singers, and his production crew. Brown spoke about his excitement to Rolling Stone. “And then having my singers and my band with the background singers and having horns, we’re going to be able to pull something off that I’ve always wanted to do,” he said. “[It’s] a new horizon and a new model that I want to work on moving forward — have another group that we integrate in with ours for an elevation for that last half of the show.” Get tickets.
