Paul McCartney returns to Hollywood Bowl on March 30

February 22, 2010 |  1:20 pm

Paul McCartney will play the Hollywood Bowl on March 30, his first concert at the venue since 1993, as part of his just-announced 2010 Up and Coming tour. As he’s been doing in recent years, the latest tour will be a combination of markets he’s never visited and those he hasn’t played lately.

The tour opens March 28 in Glendale, Ariz., and brings him to Los Angeles two nights later. There has been much speculation on the Internet about a second Bowl show on March 31, but so far only the March 30 date has been confirmed.

On his last tour he performed for David Letterman at the Ed Sullivan Theater, where the Beatles made their U.S. television debut in 1964. He also played several shows at Citi Field in New York, by the former site of the Beatles’ Shea Stadium concerts in 1965 and ’66. The Fab Four also made historic tour stops at the Hollywood Bowl in 1964 and '65.

Tickets for the Bowl concert go on sale Sunday (Feb. 28). Details on additional dates and locations are to be announced soon.
