Paul McCartney Announces U.S. Dates for 'Out There' tour

Posted on April 8, 2014

Paul McCartney fans won’t have to “long for yesterday” when dreaming of live shows by their favorite former Beatle—as the 70-year-old lad from Liverpool has announced a slate of upcoming North American dates this summer as part of his world-trotting “Out There” tour.

McCartney’s Beatles’ catalog features some of acoustic-rock’s most well-known songs—from early Fab Four hits like “Yesterday,” “Michelle” and “I’ve Just Seen a Face” to White Album-era standards as “Blackbird,” “I Will” and “Mother Nature’s Son”—and there’s no doubt he’ll be pulling out a full slate of Beatles classics on his romp through the states.

The set list will also include material from McCartney's 2013 studio album NEW, tour officials said in a statement announcing the dates.

The first four stops of the North American leg of “Out There” include a June 19 show at the New Orleans Smoothie King Center; McCartney’s first shows ever in Louisville, Kentucky (June 26 at KFC Yum! Center, natch) and Albany, New York (July 5 at Times Union Center); and a July 7 performance at Pittsburgh’s Console Energy Center.

Tickets go on sale April 14 at 10am. More dates will be announced as they’re booked. Look for updates at
