The itinerary begins with an arena show in Adelaide, a city of great historical relevance to Paul as it was where The Beatles attracted an estimated crowd of 350,000 to the streets of the city on their first visit in 1964. He and his band will then play stadium shows in Melbourne, Newcastle, Sydney, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast, with the Newcastle and the Gold Coast shows being his first concerts there. McCartney last played in Australia in 2017.
