LONDON (VIP-NEWS) — Paul McCartney’s One on One tour overall gross in 2017 ended at $132 million. The trek included a total of 37 concerts from April through December with the number of sold tickets totaling 907,610 during the eight-month span.

The One on One tour covered four continents in 2017 beginning with a string of four concerts at two venues in Japan from April 25 through 30. Three of those shows were held at the Tokyo Dome and grossed $22.8 million from 143,826 sold seats.

The sold-out run ranks as McCartney’s highest-grossing concert engagement in 2017 but is his second highest on record at the venue, based on Billboard’s Boxscore archives. He also sold out three nights at the Tokyo stadium during his Out There tour that ran for two and a half years from May 2013 through October 2015. That three-show stint in November 2013 earned $23.4 million from 146,845 sold tickets.

This past summer the tour was booked at arenas in twelve North American markets including eight shows in the metropolitan New York City area that drew over 113,000 fans to four venues. Following in October the tour played stadium dates in five Latin American cities, four of them in Brazil.

The final leg of the tour was a sweep through Oceania in December with shows in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney, Australia and a finale in Auckland, New Zealand. All were stadium dates except Sydney’s two arena shows.

The One on One tour launched originally in 2016 and included two legs in North American markets as well as a trek through Europe and also Argentina. Just as he did this year, McCartney played both arenas and stadiums during the first year of the tour.
