Paul McCartney has just added two appearances to his acclaimed Out There tour, according to an announcement made on the Paul McCartney website on Aug. 24, 2015. Macca has added dates in Columbus, Ohio and Toronto, Canada.
The music legend has already sold out a slew of concerts this year, including the Seoul Olympic Stadium in South Korea, the Stade de France in Paris and at the Firefly Roskilde and Lollapalooza Festivals. Earlier this year, Sir Paul performed at the Grammys, along with Kanye West and Rihanna. He also inducted his fellow Beatle bandmate Ringo Starr into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Paul returns to Columbus, Ohio on Oct. 13, nearly 10 years to the day since his last appearance in Ohio's capital city. Tickets for the newly announced concert at Nationwide Arena will be on sale Aug. 31, with early sales available on Aug. 27 for American Express Cardholders.
On Oct. 17, Paul will headline at Toronto's Air Canada Centre for the first time since his Up And Coming Tour in 2010. American Express Cardholders will be able to purchase tickets before the general public, starting on Aug. 17.
Paul's concerts feature about three hours of music, spanning his 50 year music career, from his days in The Beatles, Wings and as a solo artist. The set list also includes music from NEW, his most recent studio album which was a global hit upon its 2013 release.
Paul and his band has performed at impressive venues around the world, including Buckingham Palace, the White House, outside the Coliseum in Rome and in Moscow's Red Square. Paul played at the last show ever at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, where The Beatles played their final concert. Paul's band of the last ten years includes Paul "Wix" Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums).
