Paul McCartney's "Out There" tour will feature brand new, never before seen production and, as ever, hours of material from the most beloved catalog in popular music, with Paul performing songs spanning his entire career- -as a solo artist, member of Wings, and of course The Beatles
The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity. For approximately three hours, many of the greatest moments of the last 50 years of musical history--not to mention the soundtracks of entire lives--are magically brought to life as only Paul can do. Last year marked 40 years since Paul's premiere tour as a solo artist, and these past four decades have seen him play in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow’s Red Square, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people, and even a performance beamed into outer space! Having played with his peerless band of Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens (keyboards), Rusty Anderson (guitar), Abe Laboriel Jr. (drums), and Brian Ray (bass/guitar) for over ten years, Paul never disappoints--as the reviews of Paul's 2005 Seattle show will testify:
"Who was that young man on the Key Arena stage singing Beatles, Wings and Paul McCartney songs... Paul McCartney looked remarkably young... and sounded much the same as he did in the Beatles, many years ago. He fit right in with the four young guys in his band... and had even more energy."--THE SEATTLE TIMES
"It took him nearly 40 years to do it, but it was entirely worth the wait. Paul McCartney, still slender and gorgeous at 63, returned to the former Seattle Center Coliseum, now KeyArena, for the first time since the Beatles’ hysteria-inducing performances of the mid-1960s... McCartney led a capacity crowd — no less enthusiastic than the screaming hordes of the ’60s — on a celebratory journey."--THE SEATTLE POST- INTELLIGENCER
Paul is throwing himself into 2013 with full force following yet another landmark year in 2012, which saw him conclude his record-breaking "On The Run" tour, release his Grammy-winning Kisses On The Bottom album, accept a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, play at both the Diamond Jubilee and Olympics Opening Ceremony, be named MusiCares Person of the Year, and headline 12-12-12 The Concert For Sandy Relief--to highlight just a few memorable moments. With the "Out There'" tour and a new studio album in the works, it looks like 2013 will show no signs of Paul slowing down.
The "Out There" tour will see Paul and his band travel the world throughout the year, visiting both places of historical significance to Paul and new spots for the very first time. Further announcements and dates will be added in the coming weeks. Stay tuned to www.paulmccartney.com for official news and updates.
