Following an incredible 2014 which saw Paul McCartney's universally acclaimed Out There tour play 32 shows in 30 cities throughout South, Central and North America, Paul has confirmed June 21 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia as the first U.S. arena date of the 2015 Out There tour. Currently tearing through Japan and South Korea, and with confirmed headline slots at Firefly Music Festival June 19 in Dover, DE as well as Lollapalooza July 31 in Chicago, the June 21 date will mark Paul’s first appearance in Philadelphia since the sold out August 14-15, 2010 doubleheader on the Up & Coming Tour that dazzled over 30,000 fans.
The Out There tour, as always, features music from the most beloved catalog in popular music, as Paul performs songs spanning his 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. Over the years 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 is already off to an incredible start for Paul. He has appeared 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 more recently inducted Ringo Starr into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. With a sold out tour of Japan and South Korea currently underway and massive U.S., UK and Europe festival and arena engagements on the horizon, Out There 2015 is sure to be another amazing chapter for a living legend who continues to make history with his every move.
Tickets for the newly announced dates will be on sale Friday, May 1 at 12 noon local time.
