Beatles legend Paul McCartney spotted in Semaphore

You “can’t buy me love”, but you can surely buy Swedish tarts in Semaphore!

Sir Paul McCartney was allegedly spotted indulging in a treat earlier today, just hours before the soundcheck for his much-anticipated Adelaide concert.

Observers couldn’t help but think that the tart might just be Paul’s “ticket to ride” into a fantastic show on Wednesday.

For those not in the know, McCartney, a titan of rock and roll, is a former member of The Beatles, arguably the most influential band in music history. His songwriting partnership with the late John Lennon has given us timeless classics, with McCartney’s own contributions as a vocalist, bassist, and pianist central to the band’s iconic sound.

McCartney is in Adelaide at the start of his Australian tour, the city where The Beatles made history in 1964 on their first visit to Australia. Back then, an estimated 350,000 people lined the streets between the airport and Town Hall to catch a glimpse of the band.

Paul will then travel to Melbourne, Newcastle, Sydney, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast performing in stadiums – with the shows in Newcastle and the Gold Coast being his first concerts there. These dates will see McCartney return for his first live performances in Australia in six years.

McCartney was last in Australia in December 2017 (which saw him win a Helpmann Award for Best International Contemporary Concert in 2018 beating the likes of Ed Sheeran), wowing audiences nationwide with a near three-hour show, the Sydney Morning Herald reporting, “If the greatest songs elicit an emotional response too powerful to properly explain, it’s safe to say no review of Paul McCartney’s tour will quite do it justice.”
