Sir Paul McCartney to perform in Mexico City in November

Sir Paul McCartney will bring his Got Back Tour to Mexico this year, at Foro Sol in Mexico City on Nov. 14. 

The last time the former Beatle performed in Mexico City was in 2017, with a show at the Azteca Stadium.

The Got Back tour is expected to take fans across Sir Paul McCartney’s 60-year career, including dozens of songs from Paul’s solo repertoire, Wings and of course, The Beatles.  

Pre-sale tickets for the show started on Tuesday while the general sale will kick-off on Sept. 2 from 2 pm. 

Ticket prices range from 680 pesos (US $40) to 12,080 pesos (US $717), and are available from Ticketmaster.  Due to high demand, a virtual queue will open 30 minutes before sales start and organizers expect the show to sell out.

The 81-year-old Liverpudlian first came to Mexico in November 1993, playing what was only the second-ever show at the Foro Sol itself.

The British singer came back again in November 2002, 2010 and 2012 – this time, adding a one-night-show in Guadalajara. That same year he gave a free concert in Mexico City’s Zocalo.
