PAUL MCCARTNEY Confirms Additional 5 Shows for Summer 2014
Following an incredible 2013 which saw Paul McCartney's universally acclaimed Out There tour launch in Brazil and visit 23 cities across South America, Europe, North America and Japan, Paul has confirmed another five shows on the 2014 U.S. Out There tour. Currently tearing through Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Costa Rica, with Paul's return to Japan and debut in Korea set for next month, the upcoming Out There 2014 world tour will now feature five more U.S. dates:
* Paul will return to Chicago July 9 at the United Center, his first appearance in the Windy City since the legendary 2011 Wrigley Field doubleheader, a tour de force that moved the
Chicago Tribune to rave "wringing new rivers of passion from songs he's played hundreds of times... McCartney played like he wasn't taking anything, including his place in rock history, for granted."
* July will also see Paul playing long awaited first ever concerts in two U.S. cities:July 12 at the Fargodome in Fargo ND, and July 14 at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, NE.
* On July 16 Paul will return to Kansas City's Sprint Center for the first time since his 2010 Up and Coming Tour, a show "most musicians a third of his age couldn't come close to equaling" per the
Riverfront Times, and that moved the
Pitch to implore "Please come see us again soon, Paul."
* Paul's August 2 show at Target Field in Minneapolis, will be both his first ever at the ballpark and the latest in a long and storied history with the Twin Cities: one that includes not only Paul's previous shows on The US Tour in 2005 and The New World Tour in 1993, but also a 1976 stop on the Wings Over America tour and began with The Beatles' one and only Minneapolis show in 1965.
The Out There tour, as always, features music from the most beloved catalog in popular music, as Paul performs songs spanning his entire career-as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle. The set list will also include material from Paul's most recent studio album NEW, a global hit upon its release last year.
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. The last decade has seen Paul and his band perform 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, and even broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul's band of the last 10+ years-Paul "Wix" Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums)-the show never disappoints.
The tour also uses state of the art technology and production to ensure the entire audience has the best possible experience. With massive screens, lasers, fireworks, unique video content and, of course, the best songs in the world, a Paul McCartney show is so much more than just an ordinary concert. Paul's shows attract a multi generational audience from different backgrounds all brought together by his music.
2014 got off to an incredible start for Paul as he set a personal career best by winning an incredible five GRAMMY Awards in one night. In the UK he was honored by music bible NME with a special one off award, the 'Songwriter's Songwriter Award' chosen for this unique accolade by his fellow peers.
