He's back on the long and winding road all the way to Manchester.

The inaugural Co-op Live event calendar just keeps getting bigger and better as the one and only Paul McCartney is coming to Manchester’s newest arena.

Yes, the bloke from that Rihanna and Kanye ‘FourFiveSeconds’ tune back in 2015 really has gone on to be “huge“…

In all seriousness, The Beatles legend, Wings frontman and songwriting veteran is one of the most important musicians in history and with a wealth of solo material to his name, the 81-year-old is coming to Manchester later this year.

Set to bring his cleverly named ‘Got Back’ tour (a nod to the iconic Beatles track which also served as the title for their 2021 documentary) to Co-op Live during the festive period, feel free to consider this an early Christmas present.

With a singer-songwriter career spanning over half a century alone, Paul McCartney is and always will be one of the most influential names in music ever.


Having helped write not only British and global classics like ‘Hey Jude’, ‘Live and Let Die’, ‘Band on the Run’, ‘Let It Be’ and literally countless other hits that will make up his 2024 setlist, the North West-born musician and Liverpool icon would need a dozen Manc dates to get through the bulk of his discography.

You’ll have to make do with two but we love a double-bill.


It’s your chance to see a living legend at the biggest indoor entertainment venue right here in Manchester – you’d be a fool not to at least try for a ticket.

Speaking on the announcement, he said: “I’m excited to be ending my year and 2024 tour dates in the UK. It’s always such a special feeling to play shows on our home soil.

“It’s going to be an amazing end to the year. Let’s get set to party. I can’t wait to see you.”


Presale tickets for Paul McCartney’s Co-op Live two shows on 14 and 15 December go on sale at 10am on Wednesday, 19 June for Co-op members and general admission will be available from the same time on Friday, 21 June.
