Paul McCartney live: Estadio Mineirão, Belo Horizonte

Paul McCartney performed at the Estadio Mineirão in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, on 4 May 2013.

It was the opening show of the Out There Tour, which lasted for 91 dates between May 2013 and October 2015. This concert was seen by 51,621 fans.

The concert included first live renditions for Beatles songs ‘Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite!’, ‘Your Mother Should Know’, ‘Lovely Rita’ and ‘All Together Now’. It opened with ‘Eight Days A Week’, which The Beatles performed live just once, in 1965.

Two songs by Wings – ‘Listen To What The Man Said’ and ‘Hi, Hi, Hi’ – were also played for the first time at a solo McCartney show, and ‘Another Day’ was performed for the first time since 1993.

Towards the end of the concert four fans were brought onto the stage. Priscila Brito, 27, Luisa Mattos, 25, Camila Flores, 25 and Cecilia Cury, 21, had organised a petition to encourage McCartney to play in Belo Horizonte. McCartney publicly thanked the girls and signed Cury’s Beatles tattoo.

All tickets for the concert sold out, with 55,000 people in attendance. The tour is to include dates in the US, Canada, Italy, Austria and Poland.

McCartney’s band was Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens (vocals, keyboards, guitar, percussion, harmonica), Brian Ray (vocals, guitar, bass), Rusty Anderson (vocals, guitar), and Abe Laboriel Jr (vocals, drums).

McCartney returned to the Estadio Mineirão on 17 October 2017 during the One On One Tour.
