      This concert was first rumored by the local promoter himself during an interview in August 2015. Back then there were negotiations for it to happen in 2016, so we can now see how long it can take until it becomes a reality:

        Got my ticket to Paul's first concert ever in this city! Now I just have to wait 6 months so that I can collect it at the box office. That's the first time a concert is announced with such advance notice, it took everyone by surprise. Especially with tickets being put on sale already.

        This is already being called the biggest concert in the history of this city and 59,000 people are expected to be there.

            This interview is in Portuguese, too many questions to manually translate now. The main purpose is to promote the upcoming concert in Salvador (October 20, first time in that city), but he was asked about the 1990 concerts in Rio, the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper, his memories of growing up in post-war Liverpool, the song "FourFiveSeconds", the 2014 concert at Candlestick Park, his current relationship with Ringo, how he feels about doing such a long concert at 75 years old, his knowledge of Brazilian music, the possibility of visiting Salvador as a tourist, and the most interesting question, about his upcoming album:

            "Voc? j? est? preparando mais um ?lbum solo? O que seus f?s podem esperar dele?

            Estou indo fazer um show no Barclays Center (no Brooklyn, em Nova York), hoje ? tarde, mas, ainda assim, entre um show e outro, eu vou fazendo o novo disco. E ? interessante porque h? uma faixa especial para o Brasil, mas ? tudo que posso te dizer agora. E acho que voc?s v?o gostar disso".

            "Are you preparing another solo album already? What can your fans expect from it?

            I'm going to do a concert at Barclays Center (in Brooklyn, New York) this afternoon, but still, between shows, I'm preparing the new album. And it's interesting because there's a special track for Brazil, but that's all I can tell you now. And I think you are all going to like it".

            Well, if he's willing to confirm it, perhaps he will actually do that song live next month in Brazil?

              Here is an image published by the promoter with important information:

                            The local media gave a lot of TV coverage to Paul's concert. Here are some of the TV news reports in Portuguese:

                              Only one page on this concert? Gee!

                                A few pictures I took from the front row last October 20:

                                  I have just shared a bunch of pictures on twitter, so I'll share them with you as well. Here's the first batch:

                                    Second batch. It was a brilliant show, there were more than 40,000 people in the stadium.

                                      Third back. Paul was really happy and gave his all, as usual.

                                        Final batch from that unforgettable night. I stood in line since 7 AM, rushed up the stairs once the gates opened at 6 PM and had a great time at the front row (standing, general admission) once the show began around 9:30 PM until midnight.

                                          Paul's PR team put together an article about his recent tour in Brazil and Mexico:
