Tickets On Sale Now
(DETROIT – August 25, 2015) – Fresh off an undeniably historic headline performance at this year’s Lollapalooza hailed without exception as the biggest and best in the festival’s 25 year history, Paul McCartney has confirmed five new North American arena dates on the universally acclaimed Out There tour. McCartney will perform at Joe Louis Arena on Wednesday, October 21 at 8 p.m.
First, Paul will return to Columbus, OH nearly 10 years to the day since his last appearance in the Ohio capital city to headline the Nationwide Arena on October 13. October 17 will see Paul back at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre for the first time since 2010 on the Up And Coming Tour, followed by an October 21 headline at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, MI—Paul’s first appearance at Joe Louis Arena and his first visit to the Motor City since the 2011 on the On The Run Tour.
Having already torn through 22 shows this year covering Japan, South Korea, Europe, the UK and the US, the Out There tour, as always, features music from the most beloved catalog in popular music, spanning Paul's entire career – as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle. The set list also includes material from Paul's most recent studio album NEW, a global hit upon its release in 2013.
The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity: in just three hours some of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music are relived, music which for many has shaped the very soundtrack of their lives. Paul and his band have performed in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow's Red Square, Buckingham Palace, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people, played the last ever show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park where The Beatles played their final concert, and even broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul's band of the last 10+ years – Paul "Wix" Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) – the show never disappoints.
The tour also uses state of the art technology and production to ensure the entire audience has the best possible experience. With massive screens, lasers, fireworks, unique video content and, of course, the best songs in the world, a Paul McCartney show is so much more than just an ordinary concert. Paul's shows attract a multi generational audience from different backgrounds all brought together by his music.
2015 has been yet another incredible year for Paul. He kicked things off on the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards with Rihanna and Kanye West, performing their smash hit collaboration “FourFiveSeconds," treated New York City to an intimate Valentines Day concert the night before appearing on the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special, and inducted Ringo Starr into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame all before the year’s halfway mark. Having played another slew of sold out dates including his debut appearance in South Korea at the Seoul Olympic Stadium, the massive Stade de France in Paris, and triumphant headline sets at the Firefly, Roskilde and Lollapalooza festivals, Out There 2015 is already proving to be another amazing chapter for a living legend who continues to make history with his every move.
