Sir Paul McCartney is the latest big name to be announced for Manchester’s Co-op Live.

The Beatles icon is playing just four UK gigs in all on his ‘Got Back’ tour with his December 14 and 15 concerts at the city’s new £365million venue being followed by December 18 and 19 dates at The O2 in London.

They will be Sir Paul’s first UK shows since headlining Glastonbury in 2022. The ‘Got Back’ tour is touching down in Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Peru in October before reaching the UK with shows also scheduled in France and Spain. In 2023 Sir Paul performed 18 shows in Australia, Mexico and Brazil.
