Paul McCartney fans in the U.S. rejoice! The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will make his triumphant return in 2019 with the announcement of his first U.S. Freshen Up Tour shows, which will take place between May and June.
The legendary British rocker unveiled the big news on Aug. 31 via Facebook and other social media on the heels of releasing his latest single “Fuh You” earlier in August. The track is from the ex-Beatle's highly anticipated solo album Egypt Station, which will hit shelves Sept. 7 via Capitol Records.
The 18-time Grammy winner's 2019 U.S. arena romp will kick off May 27 in Raleigh, NC., at PNC Arena with his first show in the city since 2002. Macca will make long overdue visits to Greenville SC, and Lexington, KY, along with the first-ever show in Madison, WI, before wrapping up June 11 in Moline, IL, at TaxSlayer Center.
