Paul McCartney fans in Canada will have a least one chance to see the iconic British pop-rocker during his 2015 Out There Tour. The ex-Beatle has announced a brand new date, which will take place on Oct. 17 at Toronto's Air Canada Centre.
The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer unveiled the news via an update posted Aug. 21 at his official Paul McCartney website. It will be Macca's first return to Toronto since performing to a packed house on Aug. 8, 2010 at Air Canada Centre during his Up and Coming Tour.
Pre-sales and various VIP packages will be available beginning Mon., Aug. 25 at 10 a.m. EDT. Tickets go on sale to the public on Fri., Aug. 28 at 11. a.m. EDT. For more information, click here.
Macca has already performed 22 concerts in 2015, having previously made stops in Japan, South Korea, the U.K., as well as the U.S. and continues his pattern in recent years of releasing dates piecemeal on short notice. His U.S. romp included a historic headline performance on July 31 in Chicago at Lollapalooza.
The legendary rock superstar kicked off his 2015 world tour on April 21 in Osaka, Japan, at Kyocera Dome. Prior to the launch, McCartney took time to watch his ex-Fab Four bandmate Ringo Starr receive his second induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at a ceremony held April 18 in Cleveland, Ohio and also joined his fellow Liverpuddlian for an All-Star jam of "A Little Help from My Friends."
The "Band on the Run" hitmaker originally launched his Out There Tour in 2013 in support of his latest solo studio album New, which was released Oct. 14 of the same year via Virgin/EMI/Hear Music. Touting arguably the most envied back catalogue in the business, McCartney's current setlist consists of hits and beloved album tracks from his years with The Beatles and Wings along with classics and new songs from his career as a solo artist.
The 21-time Grammy winner recently announced the latest forthcoming reissues from the Paul McCartney Archive Collection, which will include 1982's Tug of War along with 1983's Pipes of Peace. Both reissues will come with previously unreleased tracks and never-before-seen video. For more information, click here.
