Billboard magazine has declared Sir Paul's Driving USA tour of North America "an unqualified critical and commercial success". According to one of the concert producers, "This tour was inspiring - a pure joy every night." It is estimated that more than 407,000 people attended the concerts. The tour grossed about $53 million with the top-grossing event being Sir Paul's $5.6 million Las Vegas appearance. His shows in New York, Chicago, and Dallas grossed more than $4 million in each city.
Based on this success, Sir Paul may be back for another drive across the USA. According to one of his concert producers, "I think there will be some more. He will continue working in the fall, and I think the inclination will be to do some more [concerts] in North America, but it's not set in stone. He is getting offers in from all over the world, and Barry Marshall is evaluating those offers, and we're standing by for whenever he gives us some direction. We're clearly hoping for a few more opportunities to let people in other cities in America experience a show like this."
