Paul McCartney live at Consol Energy Center, Pittsburgh

Sir Paul McCartney performed the first of two concerts at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was the penultimate show of his Up And Coming Tour.

Construction of the venue was completed on 1 August 2010, and McCartney was the opening performance. Demand for tickets was so great that the concert sold out within five minutes, leading to a second show being scheduled.
