Paul McCartney is returning to Vancouver after almost a half-century "On the Run" from the city.
McCartney, one of the last two remaining members of the Beatles, will hit Vancouver's BC Place Stadium on Nov. 25 as part of his "On the Run" tour, News1130 reports.
It's been a long time since the "Helter Skelter" crooner has hit Canada's West Coast. The last time was 1964, when the Beatles played Empire Stadium.
McCartney was so unimpressed with the sound at Empire Stadium that he didn't return until now, legendary Vancouver DJ Red Robinson told the radio station.
"The sound was so rotten, it was terrible!" he said.
"He said no, they've got to do something with the sound, I'm not doing that! And that's what prevented him from coming."
Live Nation Canada President Paul Haagenson worked to bring McCartney to Vancouver for three years, the Globe and Mail reported.
"Make no mistake. This is the show for every kid, every mom and dad, their mom and dad, their aunt and uncle, you and your friends, that you’re going to want to be a part of," he said.
Music manager Bruce Allen was also present at the news conference to announce McCartney's concert. He said he went to the Beatles concert in 1964 and that it was "total pandemonium," the Province reported.
"You could barely hear his group because of all the screaming girls and those girls who weren’t screaming had passed out and were carried to the first aid posts that looked like disaster areas," Allen said.
