McCartney gets back ‘Out There!’ in Albany

After he was forced to postpone a number of U.S. and Asian tour dates last month, Paul McCartney returns to the stage this weekend with a July 5 show at the Times Union Center in Albany, NY.

McCartney, 72, had been forced to postpone a number of tour dates on his Out There caravan last month after he came down with a viral infection.

Sir Paul says he has fully recovered. In a YouTube video released last week, McCartney played the air guitar as he asserted, “I feel great! Feeling great, rocking and rolling…yeah!”

Select tickets remain at press time for New York area Macca fans who are still hoping to catch the music legend at his first performance since the Out There! tour went on hiatus after his May 1 concert in San Jose, Costa Rica. The Albany gig is a quick two and a half hour drive up I-87 from Manhattan and secondary ticketing is also an option.

McCartney’s shows have packed a wallop of late, boasting nearly forty songs on some nights and running the span of his entire recording career. He has been focusing heavily on music from his Beatles and Wings eras, pulling out everything from “All My Loving” and “The Long and Winding Road” to “Listen to What the Man Said” and “Band on the Run” while incorporating a track or two from last year’s New, such as “Save Us.”
