Former Wings frontman Paul McCartney has been forced to reschedule the first night of his two night stint at Chile’s Movistar Arena after a plane carrying tour equipment failed to arrive in Santiago after the tour’s first show in Montevideo, Uruguay.
Despite Macca having put on thousands of shows around the world over the years, it is a very rare occurrence that there are any issues that force the rescheduling, postponement or even cancellation of a show.
In 2003 during the Back In The World tour Paul had to reschedule a gig at Sheffield’s Hallam FM arena due to having a cold and being unable to sing, and in 2012 during the On The Run tour he cancelled 2 shows in Horsens citing the fact that he wanted more time to put together a better show.
In an announcement on his official website, Paul said:
“Though I’m upset that the jumbo jet carrying all my equipment for the show has gone technical and will not arrive in Santiago in time for the show tonight, I will not cancel the concert. I would hate to disappoint our great Chilean fans so we are moving the Monday show to Wednesday this week and looking forward to having a rocking time in Santiago.”
