Paul McCartney announced on his official website March 9 that due to the demand of tickets for his first show in London a second show has been added on May 24. McCartney's European “Out There” tour will now play a second date at The O2 Arena in London, following the kick off of his tour on May 23. A few tickets are available for both shows from resellers.
The concerts will mark his first shows in the UK in over three years and The O2 show will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Beatles song “Yesterday.” “For me it’s a happy coincidence that The O2 show falls at this time,” McCartney said about the anniversary. “It’s great that people all over the world reacted so well to the song, it’s all you can hope for! It feels like it has taken on a life of its own over the years. The song still is and always has been an important part of our live show. It’s always very emotional for me to hear crowds singing it so loudly at my concerts and I’m looking forward to singing it along with the audience at the O2 in May.”
Further UK dates will take place in Birmingham on May 27 and Liverpool on May 28 before Paul moves on to France, Holland, Denmark and Sweden. McCartney will play shows in Japan, South Korea and at the Firefly Music Festival in Delaware, his only scheduled U.S. show so far.
On March 9, McCartney, his wife Nancy Shevell and celebrities including Kanye West attended the Stella McCartney fashion show as part of Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2015/2016. Others attending included Paul's son James, record producer Mark Ronson, former “Cheers” star Woody Harrelson, Stella's husband Alasdhair Willis, singer Pink and Jennifer Saunders of “Absolutely Fabulous.”
