Paul McCartney announced Monday he will play two shows in Argentina in October as part of his Got Back Tour. 

The legendary Liverpudlian lyricist and former Beatle will play on October 5 at the River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires, and October 23 at the Mario Kempes Stadium in Córdoba. 

“We’re coming back to play in Argentina. We’re very much looking forward to it, we’ve had some great shows there, and we love you,” said McCartney in a video posted on X by the show promoters DF Entertainment.

“So, get ready to rock and get ready to roll. We’ll have a massive party in Argentina.”

Tickets will be available on Wednesday, June 12, at 10 a.m., Buenos Aires time, on All Access. An exclusive pre-sale will be available for Santander American Express clients for 48 hours or until pre-sale tickets are sold out. 

This is McCartney’s return after his last show in 2019. Tickets for that show sold out in a matter of minutes. His first appearance in the country dates back to 1993, and he has played eight shows in Argentina since then.

McCartney launched the “Got Back Tour” in 2022, with 16 shows in the United States, followed by a triumphant gig at Glastonbury Festival that year. Eighteen more shows were added to the tour, which included Australia, Mexico and Brazil.

Last year, DF Entertainment head and legendary music promoter Daniel Grinbank complained that the country’s economic crisis and currency controls had prevented him from securing tour dates in the country. He said this led to McCartney using the dates that were planned for Argentina to add more gigs in Brazil, where he ultimately played nine shows in December.

Ticket prices for the Buenos Aires show range from AR$90,000 (US$100 at the official dollar rate; US$75 at the MEP rate) to AR$250,000 (US$280; US$200). Prices in Cordoba start at AR$85,000 (US$95; US$70) and go up to AR$300,000 (US$330; US$250). VIP Packages range from AR$569,000 (US$630; US$475) to AR$1,200,000 (US$1300; US$1000).
