Sir Paul McCartney plays the guitar left-handed, sparking initial rumours of a New Zealand and Australian tour.

Sir Paul McCartney is coming to New Zealand in December according to Australian media.

But the Beatles legend may only play one show in New Zealand when he visits as part of his One on One tour.

News.com.au reports the tour will include "a stop across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand."


Previous shows in the One on One tour have seen McCartney play a three-hour set, around half of which was Beatles songs.

McCartney's promoters, Frontier Touring, teased fans yesterday by posting two tweets.

One was of a left handed guitar, which is McCartney's preferred style of playing, with a hand that appeared to be quite similar to that of the former Beatles star.

The guitar had a kangaroo and a kiwi etched into it.

The other tweet simply had the date of June 21 in front of a background that used similar colours to his One on One Tour of USA and Europe in 2016. 

Frontier Touring revealed that the cryptic date signified a special Facebook Live fan event, which will see Paul McCartney go 'One On One' with Australian comedian Tim Minchin.
