McCartney and his band will be playing shows in five cities, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasília, Belo Horizonte, and Curitiba (full dates below). He accompanied the announcement with a short video in which he says: “Ok, ok, ok, I heard you! We’re coming to Brazil. See you there.”
In a statement, he added: “I’ve got some good news. We’re coming back to Brazil in November to play for you. We have such great memories from all our visits. I love coming to Brazil because you guys like to rock, sing and party all at once. We’re really excited. Let’s have fun. Let’s rock. Let’s roll. Let’s stomp. Let’s stroll. And Brazil, let’s have a great time.”
In 2017, McCartney was recognized as the best-selling international artist for performances in Brazil, with more than 1.5 million tickets sold. Earlier, his concert at Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janiero on April 21, 1990, attracted an audience of 184,000 fans, which at the time became the new world record for any concert attendance. The 2023 dates will end at the same stadium, on December 16.
