All tickets for Paul McCartney‘s June 8 and 10 shows at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn NY have sold out instantly. The first-time engagement for Paul at the venue is his first New York appearance since last year’s historic 12-12-12 benefit and continues a tradition of legendary NYC area plays including 2011′s Yankee Stadium doubleheader, 2009′s inaugural Citi Field three-play, and stretching all the way back to The Beatles’ 1965 musical christening of Shea Stadium.
Paul has also confirmed that his all-new 2013 “Out There” tour will include a visit to Canada for three new shows–two out of three in cities Paul has never before played: On July 7, Paul will play his historic first ever show in Ottawa, at Scotiabank Place. On August 12, Paul will return to Winnipeg for the first time since his New World Tour in 1993, for one night only at Investors Group Field. Finally on August 14, Paul will make his debut in Regina, playing his first ever show in the Queen City at Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field. As previously announced, the “Out There” tour will also be making stops May 18 and 19 in Orlando FL at Amway Center, May 22 and 23 in Austin TX at the Frank Erwin Center, May 26 in Memphis TN at FedEx Forum, May 29 and 30 in Tulsa OK at the BOK Center, June 8 and 10 in Brooklyn NY at Barclays Center, July 9 in Boston MA at Fenway Park, July 12 in Washington DC at Nationals Ballpark, July 14 in Indianapolis IN at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, July 16 in Milwaukee WI at Miller Park and July 19 in Seattle WA at Safeco Field. 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. 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.
