Famed British singer Paul McCartney will return to France after more than six years, to perform two concerts in Paris at the end of 2024. 

The 81-year old singer will spend two nights at the La Défense Arena on December 4 and 5. 

The 40,000 capacity arena – Europe’s largest indoor performance space – was where Mr McCartney most recently performed in France back in 2018. 

He will also perform in Madrid, London, and Manchester as part of this leg of the ‘Got Back’ tour, which began in the US in 2022. 

Tickets will go on sale June 21, with more information to be found on McCartney's official website.

The shows are expected to contain a mixture of classic songs from the Beatles’ discography, as well as hits from his solo albums and songs recorded with his band Wings. 

One song that may make an appearance is Michelle off of the Rubber Soul album, the first song with French lyrics to win a Grammy award.
