Paul McCartney is Coming Back to the U.S., Back to U.S.
The closest thing to seeing the Beatles in concert today is coming to America…again! Sir Paul McCartney has announced an additional leg to his already in progress “Out There” tour. The author/co-author of more than 30 number one songs had previously performed in a little over a dozen U.S. venues last summer, but will be returning stateside in June, following a string of shows in Asia and South America. The tour kicks off in Lubbock, TX, on June 14, and will wrap on August 14 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. A significant spot for the Beatle, as its where the fab four performed their last “official” concert as a group back in 1966.
A founding member of arguably the most influential rock band of all time, McCartney was the pop-music side of the legendary song-writing partnership with John Lennon. Following the band’s breakup in 1970, he formed one of the following decade’s most frequent hit-making groups, Wings, with his late-wife Linda. A prolific solo career followed, featuring 16 studio albums and a dozen classic and electronica albums. The 71-year-old released his latest album, New, in October of 2013. It eventually reached the top five in ten countries around the world. But don’t worry he’ll still probably play “Hey Jude” at every single show
