The Beatles legend Paul McCartney recently shared a photo of himself drinking beer.
He wrote on Instagram, “Happy St Paddy’s Day to y’all 🍻
#PaulMcCartney #StPatricksDay #Ireland.”
Pollstar reported that McCartney recently broke a box office record, “Sir Paul McCartney has reported a good chunk of his latest world tour, and the business on the trek has been outstanding.
Over the 10 market appearances included on the Global Concert Pulse chart, McCartney is averaging a gross of $3.6 million and an average ticket count of 31,979, good enough to get him to No. 1 on the chart.
Macca just wrapped his run through South America, a highlight of which was an eye-popping gross of more than $9 million over two nights in Sao Paulo’s Allianz Parque. More than 90,000 people showed up to see the legendary musician perform, paying between $200 and $890 per ticket.
The former Beatle has a full run of U.S. arenas and stadiums lined up for later in the year.
Sebastian Maniscalco also entered the chart above the $1 million average gross marker, coming on at the No. 12 position. The comedian is averaging $1.2 million per market appearance and 11,792 tickets reported.”
Billboard reports, “With these recent grosses, McCartney’s solo career touring total in Latin America — as reported to Billboard Boxscore — grows to $101 million. Of that total, he has earned $21.5 million in Argentina (four shows) and $47.8 million in Brazil (10 shows). His recent shows at Allianz Parque are his first double-header in Brazil and as such, become his highest-grossing engagement in the country. These dates top this week’s Boxscore chart, only the second time he has done so in LatAm, following two shows at Mexico City’s Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez on Nov. 25 and 27, 1993 ($6.5 million).”
