The 39-date 12-country odyssey concluding with a triumphant sold-out show at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles—a performance which instantly attained legendary status, generating rave reviews and best of 2019 accolades including:
“… Wow. After several decades now of writing about music and facing the perpetual challenge of translating what is beyond words into understandable language, that’s the best I can muster. Here in the heady aftermath of Paul McCartney’s final show of his Freshen Up tour at Dodger Stadium along with 50,000 of my fellow Angelenos on July 13, 2019 — Wow.” ~ American Songwriter

“McCartney was in top form, his voice effortlessly climbing to the heights it always hit so easily back in the day…” ~ The Los Angeles Times
“The total and complete immersion into Macca Land was colorful and loud, rocking and rolling, nostalgic and present, and, above all, in the truest sense, marvelous… And, in the end, the love McCartney has taken for 60 years was equal to the love he’s made for generations.” ~ Relix
