Ohhh my goodness... I hope there will be tix left for the Hollywood Bowl pre-sale. I'd love to go but I'm betting the tickets will be so hard to get. :(

BTW, a search on Ticketmaster shows that Paul has another date for the Bowl: March 31st. So he's going to be there two days, the 30th and 31st.

Oomu, have you tried getting tix for AZ?

Posted over at Paul's main site:

Second Hollywood Bowl Show Added Due To Pre-Sale Demand!

Due to unprecedented demand, a second show - March 31 - has been added for Paul McCartney's Up and Coming Tour at the Hollywood Bowl. Tickets will be available to American Express cardholders exclusively now through Saturday, February 27 at 10 p.m. The public on sale for both the March 30 and 31 dates remains Sunday, February 28 at 10 a.m.

McCartney’s extensive Up and Coming 2010 tour will begin Sunday, March 28 at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona--Paul’s first appearance in Arizona since 2005’s completely sold out 37-date US Tour. In keeping with his headline - making special concerts over the last few years, the Up and Coming tour will see McCartney and his band play unique venues, places and locations in both new cities he’s never played and familiar markets he’s not visited for a while.

The March 30 and 31 Hollywood Bowl shows mark McCartney’s first shows at the legendary venue in 17 years. Paul first appeared at the Bowl with The Beatles 46 years ago in August 1964 and then again a year later in August 1965, shows that were recorded for a live album (The Beatles At Hollywood Bowl) not released until May 1977.

The Arizona and California dates will be Paul’s first US shows since his five - week Summer Live ‘09 tour last year, which was prefaced by a triumphant sold out headline set at the 2009 Coachella festival and a surprise performance for the Late Show with David Letterman on the marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater (inside which The Beatles made TV history decades ago) that drew throngs packing Broadway from Columbus Circle to Times Square. The ‘Summer Live ‘09′ tour began in earnest with an already legendary inaugural run of shows at New York’s Citi Field Stadium, the site of the former Shea Stadium where The Beatles played the 1965 concert that set the precedent for the modern day stadium rock show. Critics hailed the Citi Field performances, seen by over 100,000 people, as the concert experience of a lifetime. Those performances were immortalized on last year’s RIAA gold - certified multi - disc CD/DVD Good Evening New York City.

The new show will feature a typically diverse set list drawing on 2 hours plus worth of selections spanning the catalogues of The Beatles, Wings and Paul’s solo career, including tracks from The Fireman’s 2008 album Electric Arguments. There will be some never-before-played-on-US-soil songs added to the set list as well as the US live premiere of ‘(I Want To) Come Home’, Paul’s Golden Globe nominated track from the film Everybody’s Fine.

Tickets For March 30 & 31 L.A. Shows Go On Sale To Public Sunday, February 28

More live shows to be announced soon. Keep checking back here!

BTW, the report doesn't mention this, but the presale isn't just for AmEx cardholders only. If you go through the fan presale, just use the passcode PMFAN.

I haven't gotten tickets yet. I gotta talk my mom into letting me go first, lol. Which sucks because she thinks it's an extravagant waste of money, so I have to try and talk her into it pretty fast here.

Hey, they've added dates for Miami and Puerto Rico now. At least it's the right coast now! Come on Paul, come a bit north!

This is Jobing.com Arena, in Phoenix. I've never been there (haha) so I was really antsy about getting good seats, but now that I've seen it I'm really happy because it's small enough that even the cheap seats are pretty good seats.  ;D

If I am not mistaken, Paul played DC and Maryland last year as well as multiple dates in NY. He loves playing in NY so it's not inconceivable that he'd play there again someday.

Puerto Rico, though? Cool, I can't recall if he's played there before. I've heard rumors of him doing Mexico or South America this year...sooo...we shall see.

Oomu, good luck convincing your mom. My own 'rents are not concertgoers themselves so I could see them calling this a waste of money too. However, I believe the tix for AZ start at $45 (not including fees/taxes), so while it's not "cheap", it's not an impossible price to pay. I hope she says yes; Paul is a force of nature when he performs live. :)
