      Paris, France - La Défense Arena (previously known as U-Arena)Wednesday November 28 2018

      “We always love playing in France. The audiences are wild and it always gets us going. We’ve had so many special nights there so we know this is going to be a huge party and we can’t wait to get back and rock out. We look forward to seeing you soon.” PaulPAULMcCARTNEY.COM PRESALE INFORMATION:

      PaulMcCartney.com pre-sale tickets will be available from 7am (LOCAL) Tuesday 4th September. To purchase pre-sale tickets on Tuesday, click the link below and enter the following password:

        Yep and here are some details and the seating chart :

        - Le prix des places est compris entre : 56.50 et 155.50 € - Parterre Or, Carré Or, Catégorie 1, 2, 3 : numéroté,- Catégorie 4 Côté de scène : visibilité réduite, numéroté- Fosse : debout, libre.

        Will be giving the soundcheck a miss this year given the setup (no chance of getting the rail like in 2016) and the pricing, 635€ vs 538€ !

          Ticketmaster once again ... I hope it won't be the same mess as for the O2.

          Good news for French fans.

            I'm going to try le Parterre Or !

              Good luck ! Won't be easy though since even the 765€ VIP Front-Row package doesn't guarantee a seat in the center ! It's a very wide stage and even at the Roger Waters concert with all its "props" people complained that they had a bad view from their side seats in the front.

              I suspect that like for Roger Waters all the center section is going to be reserved for the "Platinum Tickets" with a different pricing for each row...and if they don't sell like for Roger Waters they'll show up as normally priced seats closer to the show.

              For some reason McCartney's tickets don't sell very well in France, Marseille in 2015 was pretty disastrous with huge discounts given on Vente-Privée at the last minute and still big empty tarped sections, same for the Stade de France, a hard sell. He was a Beatle aftera all ;-) A bit odd when AC-DC can sell out these places easily, I suppose the tickets are cheaper too!

                Well we'll see tomorrow morning what is available. I was at Roger Waters's show but in the tier on the left (block 404), and fortunately there were the giant screen because the stage was very far. Hope to be closer for Paul's show.

                  I'm afraid the best seats are going to end up as "Platinum Tickets" sold at 300+ like for Roger Waters...I'd decided to give it a miss until I saw some great 8th row seats (unsold Platinum) pop up a few weeks before the show at face value, 133€, and coudn't pass on this opportunity ;-) Since I've seen Paul in the best possible conditions 2 years ago I'll probably play the waiting game unless somethin nice pops up tomorrow...which is unlikely :-(

                   

                    There it is at last! Good luck to everyone who wants tix to this show. 

                      Hi All.  I'm a bit confused.  There seem to be standing tickets and front seated blocls too.  Does anyolne know if it's GA or seated?  Thanks

                        GA behind the seats, looks at my first reply above for the details.

                          Yes !!! Rang 27 Parterre or !!!

                            As expected not much of interest this morning, couldn't do better on the floor than a seat completely on the righ, not paying 155€ for that !

                            That screen cap was made around 7:02 and still showed 574 GA tickets, maybe a total of 1000 tix were sold this morning ?

                                So that's the last row on the floor based on what I counted ? Hope it's in the center at least ;-)

                                  Bonjour Jean  3 heures minimum debout à juste apercevoir la scène, trop dur pour moi... Mon frère sera dans la fosse avec son mètre 95

                                    Don't know if it is the last row, but it is in the center. First I had closer seats, but they were completely on the right (and at 3rd try  at 7:04, it was over !)

                                       Managed to get a presale ticket for the Paris concert, fairly reasonable in price and and an ok view, havent been to Paris since year 2000

                                        Same here, pulled Rang 3 Seat 24 at 7:00 which was almost completely to the right (tip of the second diamond starting from the top) and never saw anything in the big center block, is that where you are ? I'll be checking for these regulartly. The front center block will likely be reserved for the Ticketmaster Platinum tickets at 3x face value tough...at least to start with !

                                          Row 8 - Seats 30 and 31 !

                                          It was quite expensive in comparison with the previous Paul shows I've been to but it doesn't matter, I'm so happy to see that he's back !

                                          Two years ago, at the AccorHotels Arena, we'd waited for hours under a heavy rain but we were just a few rows away from Paul so it was worth the wait. This time, there's no need to wait all day long and the "Paris La Défense Arena" is a few minutes of walk away from my office.

                                           

                                            Haha, yes the weather was terrible in 2016 !

                                            I counted the seats on the floor and came up with this to figure out locations if not shown properly on the map :

                                            Rows: 27Seats (numbered from top to bottom) :-Bloc 1 : 17-Bloc 2 : 23 total : 40-Bloc 3 : 23 total : 63-Bloc 4 Central : 32 total : 95-Bloc 5 : 23 total : 118-Bloc 6 : 23 total : 141-Bloc 7 : 17 total : 158

                                            On Vente-Privée I pulled Row 3 Seat 133 but had no idea where it was so let it go and I was right because it would have been completely to the side ! TM had given me  a Row 3 Seat 24, same problem. People in seats in these areas at the Roger Waters concert in June complained they could barely see the musicians as the stage has to be quite high so people in GA can see something.

                                            The UArena is a BIG place 2+X Bercy, it's a soccer stadium with the stands behind the goal missing ;-)
