After nearly five decades, Sir Paul McCartney is returning to Vancouver.
The 70-year-old English musician is set for an amazing night of classic Beatles, Wings and solo hits at BC Place on Sunday, November 25. This will be his first live concert here since The Beatles played Empire Stadium on August 22, 1964.

With recent shows in Mexico and Brazil topping out at 42 songs, Vancouverites are praying McCartney will bring that onstage double-encore endurance here. Forget noise bylaws and curfews – Vancouver will let him play all night if he wants, and not one lucky ticket-holder will dare leave early to beat the traffic.
McCartney’s recent sets have included an extremely wide range of songs from his entire career, including such Beatles hits as “Paperback Writer”, “The Long and Winding Road”, “Blackbird”, “Something”, “Back in the U.S.S.R.”, “I Saw Her Standing There”, “Helter Skelter” and the show-closing “The End”. He is sure to sell out the 60,000-seat football stadium at 777 Pacific Boulevard, so get in line several nights in advance for this show, the biggest one of 2012.
Tickets range from $47.00 to $133.75 for lower bowl, $133.75 to $276.00 for upper bowl and $186.50 to $276.00 for floor seating. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 14, through Ticketmaster in-person and online.
