Paul McCartney continues to expand his busy One On One Tour schedule in 2017. The iconic British rocker has confirmed a string of December dates for Australia and New Zealand.

The ex-Beatle made the big announcement on Wednesday (June 21) via his official Paul McCartney website and also appeared in a Facebook Live event with Auzzie comedic celebrity Tim Minchin to reveal details of the tour. It will be the “Baby I'm Amazed” hitmaker's first visit Down Under since The New World Tour in March 1993.

Hitting a combination of stadiums and arenas, the winter romp will kick off Dec. 2 in Perth, Australia, at NIB Stadium. Macca and company will pay visits to Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney before wrapping up Dec. 16 in Auckland, New Zealand, at Mount Smart Stadium.

"We’ve been waiting to get back to Australia and New Zealand for years and now it’s finally happening," writes McCartney in a press release. “I’m really looking forward to the concerts as we’ve always had such a brilliant time whenever we’ve been before so we know we are in for a treat.”  

The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also recently announced a show slated for Oct. 24 in Medellin, Colombia, at Estadio Atanasio Girardot. The date follows four recently announced shows in Brazil, which kick off Oct. 13 in Porto Alegre, Brazil, at Beira-Rio Stadium and wrap up Oct. 20 in Salvador, Brazil, at Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova.

The multi-platinum seller recently released an official teaser video for the song “That Days is Done,” which fans can check out above. The song is from McCartney's archival reissue of his 1989 studio album Flowers in the Dirt, which hit shelves on March 24 via MPL/Capitol/UMe.

The 21-time Grammy winner will kick off his summer U.S. tour on July 7 in Miami at AmericanAirlines Arena and wrap with a two-night stand Oct. 1-2 in Detroit at Little Caesars Arena. Tickets for a variety of Paul McCartney dates are available at AXS.
