NORTH AMERICA — Fresh off an undeniably historic headline performance at this year’s Lollapalooza hailed without exception as the biggest and best in the festival’s 25-year history, Paul McCartney has confirmed five new North American arena dates on the universally acclaimed “Out There” tour.
First, McCartney will return to Columbus, Ohio, nearly 10 years to the day since his last appearance in the Ohio capital city to headline the Nationwide Arena on Oct. 13.
On Oct. 15, McCartney will play his first ever show in State College, Pa., at the Bryce Jordan Center.
Oct. 17 will see McCartney back at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre for the first time since 2010 on the “Up And Coming” Tour, followed by an Oct. 21 in Detroit, Mich., — McCartney’s first appearance at the Joe Louis Arena and his first visit to the Motor City since 2011 on the “On The Run” Tour.
Finally, McCartney will make his concert debut in Buffalo, N.Y. on Oct. 22, at the First Niagara Center.
Having already torn through 22 shows this year covering Japan, South Korea, Europe, the UK and the U.S., the “Out There” tour, as always, features music from the most beloved catalog in popular music, spanning Paul’s entire career — as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle.
The set list also includes material from Paul’s most recent studio album “New,” a global hit upon its release in 2013.
The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity: in just three hours, some of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music are relived, music which for many has shaped the very soundtrack of their lives.
McCartney and his band have performed in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow’s Red Square, Buckingham Palace, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people, played the last ever show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park where The Beatles played their final concert and even broadcast live into space.
Featuring Paul’s band of the last 10 plus years — Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) — the show never disappoints.
