Paul McCartney has just announced his sole Canadian gig for 2019. On July 6th, the former Beatle will play at Vancouver's BC Place, with tickets for the show going on sale next Friday (February 15th). This summer will mark the 55th anniversary of the “Fab Four's” first Canadian gig — also held in Vancouver — on August 22nd, 1964 at the city's Empire Stadium.
Paul McCartney told us that there's no great method behind devising his nightly setlists, explaining that it really comes down to common sense: “We just do, first of all what we think the audience might like; secondly, what we like — which is very important because we can't throw in stuff that they like, but we don't. And then we throw in a bit of things they may not know, but that we think would be interesting because they don't know 'em. And then we look and see what we did last time and we try not to do too many of the same numbers. We try to open with something different, so a few little things like that.”
