Paul McCartney, a former member of epic Brit band The Beatles and solo artist will be returning to Australia after a 24-year Aussie drought. McCartney has not toured in the land down under since 1993, and it’s safe to say that that side of the world is getting pretty excited….
It is believed that Paul will visit Australia in December by adding dates to his already chock-a-black One On One Tour – but Paul, alongside comedian, Tim Minchin will be releasing further details today during a Facebook Live Q&A session.

What an amazing Christmas present, right?!
Although McCartney hasn’t performed in Australia since 1993, it’s not for want of trying. In 2002, he had scheduled numerous tour dates around Australia, but he decided to cancel them out of respect for the lives that were lost after two bombs killed 202 people on the nearby island of Bali. During this time, he said,
As a mark of respect to both the families who have lost loved ones and to the families of the injured, I have decided to postpone my planned concert in Melbourne as this is not the appropriate time for a rock show.
We can’t wait to see him down under!
