Paul McCartney fans in the U.S. will have more opportunities to catch the iconic British rocker in 2019. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has added three new shows in late May and June in support of his brand new solo album Egypt Station, which dropped Sept. 7 via Capitol Records.

The ex-Beatle unveiled the new dates Sept 10 via Facebook on the heels of staging a secret show on Friday in New York's Grand Central Station to celebrate the release of his critically acclaimed 18th solo effort. The new shows will bring the total number of U.S. Freshen Up tour dates to eight shows.

With the 2019 additions, the U.S. leg will now begin May 23 in New Orleans at Smoothie King Arena when Macca will make his triumphant to The Big Easy for the first time in five years. The 18-time Grammy winner will make a first-time stop on June 3 in Fort Wayne, IN, at Allen Country War Memorial and will also pay a return visit June 26 to Phoenix at Talking Stick Resort Arena.

Select presales run between Thursday, Sept. 13 at 10:00 a.m. local time through Thursday, Sept. 13 at 10:00 p.m. local time. Tickets go on sale to the public starting Friday, Sept. 17 at 10:00 a.m. local time. For more details on the new dates, click here.

Along with his secret show in The Big Apple on Friday, Sir Paul made a flurry of promotional appearances ahead of Egypt Station's release, including a radio appearance on “The Howard Stern Show” on Sept. 5 and a TV performance on “The Tonight Show” on Sept. 6.  Fans can check out the "Band on the Run" hitmaker performing “Fuh You” at Grand Central Station above..

Egypt Station is available in both a 16-track standard edition and an 18-track deluxe edition and is available to purchase here in CD, digital, vinyl and streaming formats.
