And LOL Metallica is playing at the stadium that night! 

I don't think one will negatively affect the other, at any rate. Just two events the same night, might make the already nightmarish traffic a touch worse. But we'll see. I did see Metallica back in the day, and I was astounded at their musicianship, actually.

Paul McCartney close to locking in Australian tour dates

The article only mentions AAMI Park in Melbourne, but maybe he will get around to more Australian cities. Fingers crossed for all of our lovely Australian forumpudlians.

@The Hole Got Fixed are you going to try to go to one of the Australian concerts.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Awww I'm really happy for the Oz fans, if Europe doesn't get dates, I'm very happy that Australia does (better than him announcing more US, Brazilian or Japanese dates >.> ).

Thanks for the heads-up @Martha.

I'd like to take HKL if he's anywhere close - been a LONG time since I last saw him.

@Beatlebug Thanks for the heads up. I really hope he does tour here. 

@Martha I hope so as well. It would be good to cross him off the bucket list.

I would love to but it's a 50/50 proposition for me .Given how rarely he tours here, I expect massive scalping of tickets. Hoping that the arrangement that got me to Ringo the last time might work again!

If it happens I think he will do at least more than one show. If there is a pre-sale that try and get tickets that way as well.

I will try my absolute hardest to get tickets to this. I have seen several articles about this pop up on social media so I think this will go ahead but I am just waiting for an official announcement. 

I didn't expect that when I first posted on this thread that the great man would actually tour Australia later this year. I'm not getting hopes up yet but I think this will happen.

OK, you all Down Under...I know what you all will be asking for for Christmas!

Paul will be there in December! Dates will be announced soon. beatlemaniacs_02_gif

http://www.news.com.au/enterta.....4fd3431887

From the article:

His Australian promoter Frontier are currently sourcing questions from local Macca fans on its Facebook page.
The musical legend will select from those questions when he officially announces the tour tomorrow night at 7.30pm.

In a modern twist McCartney will announce all the tour dates and ticketing details during a Facebook live Q and A session — again on Frontier’s Facebook page.

The interview will be hosted live from London by longtime McCartney fan, Aussie comedian Tim Minchin, who is flying in especially for the event.

McCartney’s Australian tour dates will take place in December and will include a stop across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand.

No venues have been confirmed although a leak from Melbourne’s AAMI Park suggest McCartney will join the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Swift and the Foo Fighters to play the outdoor venue which can hold around 35,000 fans.

McCartney’s tour is expected to stretch further than the West Coast, and Adelaide fans are already hoping the rock icon doesn’t join the list of acts bypassing South Australia.

I added the US, Brazil, and Columbia dates to post 1 of this thread. I put in place holders for the Australian and New Zealand dates.

Ask the teacher if you can take the exam early and tell him/her why. If the teacher knows you to be a good student, (s)he may make an exception because you won't tell others what is on the exam.

I can't remember for sure when my exams are, and there's also a chance I won't have any that day and the day after too. 

It's too early to say for sure though, but I'm going to go, there's no question. Even if I have to break some rules... like Beatlemania in Melbourne 54 years ago!

You may never get another chance to see him live so you should try your best to go but I do hope it doesn't clash with your exams to relieve some of the stress.
