Paul McCartney has shared his Australian tour recap video, courtesy of MPL Communications exclusively with The Music, in which he said he “loved” performing down under.

“The audiences have been fantastic, and we love you, Australia,” McCartney says over an enthusiastic crowd singing Can’t Buy Me Love. From there, the tour recap video shows footage from Adelaide, Melbourne, Newcastle, Sydney, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast – all with thrilled audiences taking in every glorious moment packed with classic songs.

The recap video shows the highlights of his sell-out tour that played out to 200,000 thousand Aussies, from crowd singalongs, pyrotechnics and McCartney brandishing an Australian flag in Sydney.

“We love Adelaide, we love Melbourne, we love Newcastle, we love Sydney, we love Brisbane, and we love the Gold Coast – I know where I’m going!” McCartney says to his crew’s laughs. You can watch the recap video below.

Paul McCartney wrapped up his Got Back Australian tour on 4 November at Heritage Bank Stadium on the Gold Coast. The tour began with an arena show at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre (18 October) before the Beatle and Wings star performed at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium, Newcastle’s McDonald Jones Stadium, Sydney’s Allianz Stadium and Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium.

The Music attended and reviewed three of McCartney’s shows: in Adelaide, Melbourne and the Gold Coast.

“Vocally, McCartney is consistent, controlled and carried superbly by the band,” The Music reviewer Genevra Siciliano declared in a review of McCartney’s Adelaide concert. “Get Back, Let It Be, the pyrotechnics-fuelled Live And Let Die, and the phenomenal Hey Jude (where the house lights come on to highlight the audience’s impressive sing-a-long efforts) lead us to the encore. By now, the realisation kicks in that it really is Paul McCartney, in all his splendour, up on that stage.”

Meanwhile, in Melbourne, The Music’s Guido Farnell pointed out that “At 81, McCartney defied age and simply blew the crowd at Marvel Stadium away with an epic three hours of tunes that showcase an illustrious career that is the stuff of legend.”

On the last night of his tour, The Music’s Jessie Lynch watched on as Paul McCartney proved to be a “testament to the enduring spirit of rock 'n' roll”. She added, “The night was not just a concert but a journey through the evolution of modern music – McCartney as the consummate guide.”
