Paul McCartney announces the first ‘One on One’ tour dates

The news comes following the passing of 'the fifth Beatle' George Martin

Paul McCartney has revealed the first string of dates as part of his One On One tour.

The jaunt, which is set to kick off in April, will see The Beatles legend play shows in the likes of Portland, Seattle and Vancouver with more dates expected to be confirmed.

A press release promises a newly redesigned set, as well as “no shortage of surprises.” McCartney’s previous tour, Out There, concluded last October. 

The news comes following the passing of Beatles producer George Martin, who McCartney described as “a true gentlemen” in a moving statement, adding he was “like a second father” to him.

He added: “He guided the career of The Beatles with such skill and good humour that he became a true friend to me and my family. If anyone earned the title of the fifth Beatle it was George.

“From the day that he gave The Beatles our first recording contract, to the last time I saw him, he was the most generous, intelligent and musical person I’ve ever had the pleasure to know.”
