    Tour Announcement

    On April 8, Paul McCartney confirmed he will again be returning to the U.S. this summer for his ongoing Out There Tour. The former Beatle has been sporadically announcing dates since the initial announcement, and as of April 28, the singer has added more than 15 shows to his summer itinerary.

    Although this revered musician has been touring the U.S. for half a century, including a brief venture last year, many of the venues tabbed for the current tour have never before hosted one of McCartney’s solo shows. The year 2014 will mark McCartney’s first time performing in several cities, including the tour’s first North American stop in Lubbock, Texas (June 5), as well as Louisville, Ky. (June 26), Albany, N.Y. (July 5), Fargo, N.D. (July 12), Lincoln, Neb. (July 14), and Missoula, Mont. (Aug. 5).

    In addition, a number of the featured cities on the tour have not hosted the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer in years. Among those is Chicago, which last featured McCartney at Wrigley Field in 2011, but will now feature a smaller performance from the singer at United Center on July 9. McCartney also has plans to perform at the home of the Minnesota Twins, Target Field, for the first time ever on Aug. 2, and a few days later, will stop at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium on Aug. 10. McCartney has not headlined at the open-air stadium since 1966, when he appeared with The Beatles, and this will also be his first time performing in Los Angeles in four years.

    As of April 28, the final show of the tour is scheduled to take place at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park on Aug. 14. The former home to the San Francisco 49ers is set for demolition later this year, and as such, this upcoming performance will mark not only McCartney’s final time performing at the venue, but also the final concert to ever take place at the Bay Area landmark. The stadium also holds a special place in The Beatles’ history, as it hosted the group’s final full concert in 1966.

    The 2014 Out There tour dates follow the 2013 release of McCartney’s latest album New, and although he will perform a selection of tracks from his newest album during the upcoming tour, the majority of his setlists typically include a hearty dose of the biggest songs from his time with The Beatles and Wings. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ arrival in the United States, and McCartney continues to carry on the legacy of the influential group with his solo shows.
