The ‘Got Back’ tour will be McCartney’s first since his ‘FRESHEN UP’ tour wrapped up in July 2019.

“I said at the end of the last tour that I’d see you next time. I said I was going to get back to you. Well, I got back!” he said of ‘Got Back’.

Six Beatles-related NFTs sold for a combined $158,720 (£117,236), with McCartney’s personal ‘Hey Jude’ notes coming in as the biggest-seller.

The Beatles’ ‘Hey Jude’ arrived as a standalone single in August 1968 ahead of the group releasing their classic ‘White Album’ later that year. The track remains a staple of McCartney’s solo concerts.
