Paul McCartney Announces New North American Dates
Paul McCartney will play five North American concerts in October, beginning with his first stop in a decade at Columbus, Ohio. McCartney will also play his first-ever concert at State College, Penn.
McCartney, who made a celebrated appearance as headliner at this year's Lollapalooza, also plays Toronto for the first time since 2010. A Detroit date is the former Beatles star's initial stop there since 2011. This newly announced run of shows includes McCartney's concert debut in Buffalo, as well.
You can see a complete list of dates and cities below. Tickets for the U.S. shows go on sale Aug. 31; the Toronto tickets will be available beginning Aug. 28.
These concerts follow a total of 22 shows so far in 2015, including earlier stops in Japan, South Korea, Europe and the U.K. The set lists have touched on every era of McCartney's career, from the Beatles to Wings, and solo material through his most recent studio effort, 2013's New.
McCartney began 2015 with an appearance at the Grammy Awards, where he performed "FourFiveSeconds" with Rihanna and Kanye West. His next major project includes the reissue of two early '80s solo albums, Tug of War and Pipes of Peace.
McCartney's touring band, now together longer than either Wings or the Beatles, includes Rusty Anderson, Abe Laboriel Jr., Brian Ray and Paul "Wix" Wickens.
