Paul McCartney Keeps His Promise with "Got Back" Tour 2022

1020 days—that’s how long it will have been since Sir Paul McCartney headlined his own concert when he takes the stage in Spokane this April. To give you some perspective, according to our setlist.fm data, the last time Sir Paul went this long without touring was during his brief festival-only run from 2006 to 2008. But even then, the Beatles legend had at least performed 15 one-off shows along the way.

Fortunately, the long wait is finally over. Macca has officially announced his "Got Back" tour across North America as a follow up to the conclusion of his 2019 Freshen Up tour.

July 13, 2019 - Dodger Stadium. Shortly after Sir Ringo Starr joined Paul on stage for a partial Beatles reunion with renditions of “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)" and "Helter Skelter," the former Wings frontman closed the evening, and thus the tour, with a promise: “Only one thing left to be said: we’ll see you next time.”

Boy are we happy to learn that even Paul McCartney keeps his promises.

A play on the 1970 hit, “Get Back,” the "Got Back" tour name may allude to what could be a thematic emphasis on the Beatles' Let It Be LP during the upcoming run. Or does it?

Let’s take a look at his most recent headlining setlist from Dodger Stadium:

Paul McCartney - Dodger Stadium 2019

Of the 38 songs performed, only “I’ve Got a Feeling” and “Let It Be” were pulled from the 1970 album. In fact, “Get Back” didn’t even make the cut.

On a larger scale, however, four songs off of Let it Be make Sir Paul's top 30 most-performed songs live since 1982, including "The Long and Winding Road" in addition to the three previously mentioned. That takes into account all works across his extensive catalogue of nearly 40 McCartney, Wings and Beatles albums combined.

So does the tour name really provide us with any hints at what we might expect from this upcoming run? There's only one way to find out. Grab your tickets to the "Got Back" tour HERE!
