Recently, Paul McCartney kicked off his latest let of U.S. "One on One" Tour. Even though he is also playing large stadiums, McCartney also likes some more intimate venues. In an interview with Rolling Stone he said:

"When I do the show, I feel like I'm kind of talking to someone like me in the audience. So I'm relating to the people. And when I'm playing, I'm imagining it's me listening to this band, this guy."

According to McCartney, even the tour's name comes from the intimate experience that he would like for the fans to experience:

"Even though you're at the back of the hall, we try and bring the intimacy to you."
