Paul McCartney on Tuesday announced the latest addition to his new One On One Tour. The new show will be June 16 at 02 Arena in Prague in the Czech Republic. Pre-sale tickets for the new show will go on sale through his website at 10 a.m. CET-Central European Time and 9 a.m. BST-British Summer Time on March 30.
The new show makes a total of 17 shows he'll be doing this summer. The first show takes place April 13 at Save Mart Center in Fresno, California. Other North American shows will follow in Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; North Little Rock, Arkansas; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and Minneapolis, Minnesota, with two more in Vancouver, British Columbia. Tickets for McCartney's U.S. One On One shows are available here and also here. After Sioux Falls, the tour will head to Europe to play a show Dusseldorf, Germany at the end of May, then Paris, Madrid, Munich and Berlin from May into June. The tour will also hit two rock festivals in June in the Netherlands and Belgium.
McCartney had fans also wondering Tuesday what else might be brewing after a short new video clip was posted at noon ET today on his YouTube account. The video, which just says “McCARTNEY” in white on a solid black background, lasts six seconds and is a jumbled avant-garde-type sound montage of what appears to be a younger sounding McCartney.
Some fans on his official website, pointing to a recent interview with band guitarist Rusty Anderson, suggest it might have something to do with new music and a new album that might be in the works, while another fan suggested it might be a new compilation of some older material. McCartney fan Robert Gannon said he'd heard about a limited vinyl remix of "Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five" and thinks that's what it is. Given past McCartney teases, something does appear to be in the works, though.
