Paul McCartney will bring his Out There tour back to Europe in May starting with three UK arena gigs.
Macca plays the O2 in London on May 23rd, the Birmingham Arena on the 27th and Liverpool’s Echo Arena on the 28th before moving onto the rest of Europe for six further shows.
“I’m looking forward to taking the Out There tour back to Europe this summer. It’s been a little while since I’ve performed in some of these places so we know it’s going to be a fun tour,” McCartney says. “I hope the audiences enjoy this tour as much as we’ve been enjoying it ourselves all over the world.”
“For me it’s a happy coincidence that The O2 show falls at this time,” he adds, referencing the fact that the O2 gig falls on the 50th anniversary of him completing ‘Yesterday‘. “It’s great that people all over the world reacted so well to the song, it’s all you can hope for!”
“It feels like it has taken on a life of its own over the years. The song still is and always has been an important part of our live show.”
