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