Paul McCartney Announces U.S. Dates for 'Out There' tour
Paul McCartney fans wonâ€™t have to â€ślong for yesterdayâ€ť when dreaming of live shows by their favorite former Beatleâ€”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 â€śOut Thereâ€ť tour.
McCartneyâ€™s Beatlesâ€™ catalog features some of acoustic-rockâ€™s most well-known songsâ€”from early Fab Four hits like â€śYesterday,â€ť â€śMichelleâ€ť and â€śIâ€™ve Just Seen a Faceâ€ť to White Album-era standards as â€śBlackbird,â€ť â€śI Willâ€ť and â€śMother Natureâ€™s Sonâ€ťâ€”and thereâ€™s no doubt heâ€™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 â€śOut Thereâ€ť include a June 19 show at the New Orleans Smoothie King Center; McCartneyâ€™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 Pittsburghâ€™s Console Energy Center.
Tickets go on sale April 14 at 10am. More dates will be announced as theyâ€™re booked. Look for updates at www.paulmccartney.com.
