Former Beatles member Paul McCartney has been a staple in the music industry for several decades. The English singer, songwriter and musician has not only found success as part of the Beatles but with his own solo career. After the band broke up, McCartney started his individual solo effort and found even more success in the industry. Today, he is one of the most successful composers and performers in the history of the music industry.
During his career, McCartney has managed to earn more than 60 gold discs and sold more than 100 million albums. In addition to being a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the Beatles, he has also been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist. During his career he has written or co-written more than 32 number one hit singles. While his resume is undoubtedly impressive, for fans of his music, Paul McCartney is perhaps most known for his live performance style. His high energy performances, that feature McCartney’s musical talents on a variety of instruments, have made the singer one of the most popular solo acts to see live. This can be seen by his impressive tickets sales at major concert venues around the globe.
As of 2014, Paul McCartney has been touring around on his highly successful “Out There” tour. The former Beatle has been adding additional stops for his current tour due to overwhelming demand from fans. The singer has already sold out all of his shows, in major markets and has recently added stops across the United States for the month of August. The year 2014 also
marked the singer’s much talked about Candlestick Park show which is being called the “Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert.” The show, and last stop on McCartney’s US tour will be the final show before its demolition. This is also the place where the Beatles performed their final full concert together in 1966. With so much history behind his long and successful career in the industry there is no denying that Paul McCartney was and continues to be one of the most influential individuals in the music industry.
