Paul reschedules first Santiago show due to equipment not arriving on time


"Though I'm upset that the jumbo jet carrying all my equipment for the show has gone technical and will not arrive in Santiago in time for the show tonight, I will not cancel the concert. I would hate to disappoint our great Chilean fans so we are moving the Monday show to Wednesday (April 23) this week and looking forward to having a rocking time in Santiago."

Five More U.S. Dates Confirmed!

PAUL McCARTNEY IS GETTING BACK 'OUT THERE'

FIVE MORE U.S. SHOWS CONFIRMED FOR SUMMER 2014

July 9: Chicago, IL ­ United Center
July 12: Fargo, ND ­ Fargodome
July 14: Lincoln, NE - Pinnacle Bank Arena
July 16: Kansas City, MO - Sprint Center
August 2: Minneapolis, MN ­ Target Field

STILL MORE DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED
Following an incredible 2013 which saw Paul McCartney's universally acclaimed 'Out There' tour launch in Brazil and visit 23 cities across South America, Europe, North America and Japan, Paul has confirmed another five shows on the 2014 U.S. 'Out There' tour. Currently tearing through Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Costa Rica, with Paul's return to Japan and debut in Korea set for next month, the upcoming 'Out There' 2014 world tour will now feature five more U.S. dates:

Paul will return to Chicago July 9 at the United Center, his first appearance in the Windy City since the legendary 2011 Wrigley Field doubleheader, a tour de force that moved the Chicago Tribune to rave, "Wringing new rivers of passion from songs he's played hundreds of times... McCartney played like he wasn't taking anything, including his place in rock history, for granted."

July will also see Paul playing long awaited first ever concerts in two U.S. cities: July 12 at the Fargodome in Fargo ND, and July 14 at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, NE.

On July 16 Paul will return to Kansas City's Sprint Center for the first time since his 2010 'Up and Coming' Tour, a show "Most musicians a third of his age couldn't come close to equaling," per the Riverfront Times, and that moved The Pitch to implore, "Please come see us again soon, Paul."

Paul's August 2 show at Target Field in Minneapolis, will be both his first ever at the ballpark and the latest in a long and storied history with the Twin Cities: one that includes not only Paul's previous shows on 'The US Tour' in 2005 and 'The New World Tour' in 1993, but also a 1976 stop on the 'Wings over America' tour and began with The Beatles' one and only Minneapolis show in 1965.

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 will also include material from Paul's most recent studio album NEW, a global hit upon its release last year.

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. The last decade has seen Paul and his band perform 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, 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.

2014 got off to an incredible start for Paul as he set a personal career best by winning an incredible five GRAMMY Awards in one night. In the UK he was honored by music bible NME with a special one off award, the 'Songwriter's Songwriter Award' chosen for this unique accolade by his fellow peers.

Tickets for the newly announced dates will be on sale Monday, April 28 at 10 a.m. local time.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Thursday, April 24 at 10 a.m. through Sunday, April 27 at 10 p.m.

Luis Suarez interviews Beatles star Sir Paul McCartney ahead of Uruguay concert


CLICK TO WATCH

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is fast becoming a legend on Merseyside and this recent interview with Beatles star Sir Paul McCartney will only add to his popularity as a Red.

The Uruguayan international has been recorded asking a series of questions to the 71-year-old as the pair discuss football, music and Merseyside.

McCartney is due to play a concert to 50,000 fans in Uruguay's Estadio Centenario Stadium on Saturday night and Suarez was even cheeky enough to ask for a ticket despite being heavily involved in Liverpool's Premier League title chase.

The singer was also sure to get a word in for the blue half of Merseyide before the interview had finished.

McCartney added: 'Cool, man. Lovely. Great to speak you, man. Liverpool, Liverpool...Everton.'

Coachella 2014: Beyonce and Sir Paul McCartney 'become gym buddies' during music festival

Coachella 2014: Beyonce and Sir Paul McCartney 'become gym buddies' during music festival

The music legends hit the treadmills at the plush Four Seasons Hotel in the city ­ where they have been staying during the Coachella Festival.


Paul attends day 1 of the 2014 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival
at the Empire Polo Club on April 11, 2014 in Indio, CA

As gym buddies go, it doesn't get much more showbiz than this.

Beyonce has been working out with Beatle's legend Sir Paul McCartney.

The famous pair have been going through their paces at an LA gym, according to the Sun.

The music legends hit the treadmills at the plush Four Seasons Hotel in the city ­ where they have been staying during the Coachella Festival.

After their workout, Macca, 71, and Beyonce, 32, reportedly did some Pilates before heading off ­ for a RUN.

Beyonce thrilled fans at the festival when she made a surprise appearance on stage with her sister Solange.

It's a good job Sir Paul is staying in good physical shape after he added six more dates to the North American leg of his 'Out There' Tour.

Is that a Big Macca? Paul McCartney treats himself to a burger during lunch with wife Nancy Shevell in Beverly Hills


It was a lunchtime treat that looked more than a little Beatle juicy.

And
Sir Paul McCartney certainly seemed to be enjoying himself as he tucked into a burger for lunch in posh Beverly Hills on Wednesday (Greenleaf Restaurant).

The legendary musician was enjoying some quality time with wife Nancy Shevell in the well-heeled area of Los Angeles.

And he seemed to be having an even better time when he got to munch away on his Big Macca.

However the famous Evertonian will have been devastated later in the day when he discovered his team had crashed to a disastrous 3-2 loss at home to Crystal Palace.

Sir Paul was looking in good shape for a 71-year-old in a lurid yellow T-shirt, blue bodywarmer, grey running bottoms and trainers.

And it seems his presence still excites devoted fans. for he was accosted in the street by an excited autograph hunter as he headed back to his car following his meal.

While he may be a pensioner, Sir Paul is certainly not slowing down, and announced he will be headlining a concert in Lubbock, Texas in June at the Buddy Holly Center, a fitting venue given how inflential the pioneering rock and roller was to
The Beatles.

'If it wasn't for the Crickets, there wouldn't be any Beatles,' Sir Paul said in his 1985 documentary, The Real Buddy Holly Story. He also still owns the musical rights to Holly's back catalogue.

Tickets for his upcoming show at the Times Union Center in Albany, New York, sold out in just 30 minutes.

The Wings favouite has also asked his fans around the world to help make the music video for the track 'Save Us' from his upcoming album 'New.'

He's asked fans to send in pictures of themselves holding up a sheet of paper with a lyric from the song, with the most creative snaps being selected to appear.

'We would like you to pick a line or two from Paul's song Save Us (or pick every line if you want!) and take a photo of yourself with it,' it says on McCartney's website.

'You could write the words on a piece of paper; make something with the words on; do something on your computer - remember, the more creative your photo, the more chance you have of being included!'

Paul McCartney concert: Let it be at new stadium, 49ers say

The 49ers are in talks with Paul McCartney to perform the opening concert at their new Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara - a move that would effectively yank the rug out from under San Francisco's plans for the music legend to headline a final send-off concert at Candlestick Park.

Mayor Ed Lee personally invited McCartney to close the Stick when the former
Beatle played at the Outside Lands festival in Golden Gate Park last year.

The idea was to say goodbye to the ballpark where the Beatles played their final paid concert in 1966.

McCartney's reps and the city had been talking since Lee made the offer, and City Hall was convinced that the show was all but a done deal.

It all changed, however, when McCartney's envoys, including his worldwide concert promoter, Barrie Marshall, toured Candlestick last month and let slip that they had just visited Levi's Stadium as part of negotiations with the Niners for an opening concert there in early August.

It was a blindside hit that had city officials feeling betrayed.

Team execs insisted to San Francisco officials that they had been approached about hosting a McCartney show by Live Nation, the national promoter that has a financial stake in Sir Paul's management company.

Besides, the Niners said they had a fiduciary responsibility to their sponsors - including Levi's, which has a $220 million naming-rights deal at the stadium - to host a certain number of concerts a year.

"Classless" is how one San Francisco official greeted the Niners' play - which some see as the latest in a string of insults aimed at the city since owner John York announced in 2006 that the team was leaving town.

Sarah Ballard, spokeswoman for the city's Recreation and Park Department, which runs Candlestick, expressed disappointment at the prospect of losing the concert. But she steered clear of any name calling, noting that the decision on where to play was ultimately McCartney's.

Mayoral spokeswoman Christine Falvey said that regardless of how it all plays out, "the city is going to have a great farewell for Candlestick for the public." A representative for Live Nation said the company had no comment.

In a statement, the Niners said they book events on behalf of the Santa Clara Stadium Authority and "we continue to seek world-class sports and entertainment events that benefit the entire region."

Date night: Paul McCartney and wife Nancy Shevell dress to match as they dine out in Los Angeles

He is considered rock royalty and one of the world's greatest musicians.

But, pictured on a cosy date night in downtown Los Angeles this week, Sir Paul McCartney is also keen to enjoy romantic down-time with his wife.

The Liverpudlian singer and his beautiful partner, Nancy Shevell, were spotted dining out at Mr. Chow's restaurant in Beverly Hills - proving that they are a perfect match in more ways than one.

The founding member of The Beatles, 71, was wearing a blue suit jacket with black jeans and a simple black shirt for the occasion.

Meanwhile, with her hair looking glossy and smooth, Nancy followed suit in a blue and green floral jacket with cropped cuffs over black, velvet trousers.

Together they looked sartorially in sync with matching colours and tones.

Smiling broadly, they clearly enjoyed their time at the acclaimed eatery - which specialises in Beijing delicacies and is run by award-winning executive chef Yi Jia Qian.

A local hot-spot in LA, it has previously been frequented by the likes of Steve Martin, Claire Danes, Kate Beckinsale and Steven Spielberg. But McCartney will be used to such illustrious company. Joining him at Mr Chow's was Jeff Lynne of Electric Light Orchestra.

Likewise, just last month, Paul and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl took their wives to vegan restaurant Crossroads on Melrose Avenue in LA.

Together, Paul and David no doubt took a chance to celebrate their Grammy win in January for Best Rock Song.

The duo had teamed up with Ringo Starr and the other surviving members of Nirvana, bassist Krist Novoselic and touring guitarist Pat Smear, to form Sirvana and were awarded at the music ceremony for their track Cut Me Some Slack. 'This song was two hours in my studio,' Dave said during his Grammy acceptance speech.

Sir Paul McCartney dances, goes on Kiss Cam during Lakers-Clippers game


CLICK TO WATCH

Sir Paul McCartney was in a good mood at the Staples Center to see the Clippers play the Lakers Sunday. "Can't Buy Me Love" was played as a tribute to Paul who was featured on kiss cam inside the arena, and later did a crazy dance when he was shown on screen. Sir Paul is 71 years old, but he's got more energy than the 20-somethings sitting on the bench.

Paul took the opportunity to plant a kiss on his wife, Nancy Shevell, for the Kiss Cam at the Staples Center during an NBA basketball game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Lakers on Sunday in Los Angeles.

The 71-year-old singer lovingly pulled 53-year-old Nancy's face close to him and gave her a sweet kiss.

The pair seemed completely in their own world as they kissed despite all the fans surrounding them.

They sat together and held hands as they talked and watched the game.

After their PDA, Paul really got into the spirit of the game, as he waved his arms and cheered on his team even performing a few dance moves.

'I called up Paul and said, "Hey, man, do you want to come jam with some friends of mine?" He came over, we knocked this out in a couple of hours, and to me, that's what rock 'n roll is all about.'

It featured on the soundtrack for Dave's directorial debut documentary Sound City, which sadly wasn't nominated by the Academy this year, so it's no wonder the former Nirvana drummer didn't attended the awards ceremony or parties.

Next up for Paul, he will perform his first-ever concert in Seoul, South Korea on May 28 and pre-sale tickets for the show go on sale April 7.

Paul Gets #OutThere In South Korea!


Paul McCartney Getting Back 'Out There'
First time in South Korea

'Paul McCartney Hyundai Card Super Concert 20'
Wednesday, May 28th ­ Seoul, South Korea
Jamsil Sports Complex Main Stadium

Following an incredible 2013 which saw Paul's critically acclaimed 'Out There' tour launch in Brazil and visit 23 cities across South America, Europe, North America and Japan, today Paul confirms he'll be getting back out there by announcing his first ever concert in South Korea, taking place at Seoul's Jamsil Sports Complex Main Stadium this May 28th, 2014.

Regular readers of PaulMcCartney.com may remember that last March model/actress/entrepreneur Lily Cole sent Paul a photo of a busker she spotted in London:

The sign reads: "Sir Paul McCartney! Please have a concert in Republic of Korea!! There are millions of fans waiting for you."

Paul noted at the time, "Lily Cole sent me this pic - may lead to a show in Korea. Hope so!"

We can't say for sure if the two events are related, but we hope that the gentleman on the photo gets to the show in Seoul!

Dan Croll on Music, Muses and Meeting Paul McCartney

In a world of young, manufactured trying-too-hard pop singers, there's something refreshing about a clean-cut, unassuming singer-songwriter in specs that recall Buddy Holly. As a teen, Dan Croll, 23, thought he might have a career in rugby. But a broken leg on the field at 17 ended his sporting aspirations. "I've always been musical and played a couple of instruments," says Croll, "then I decided I wanted to have a go at music."

At 18, Croll left his home in Staffordshire, England, to attend the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. In 2011, his final year there, he won the Musicians Benevolent Fund Songwriter of the Year Award, which included a 5,000 pound, or about $9,000, prize. He used the money wisely. "I ended up making a basic home studio to start recording my own music in my own time." But like most university boys, he admits, "A little bit of it might have gone down at the pub."

The day after collecting his award, he met with Sir Paul McCartney for a 45-minute one-on-one session, a privilege granted to seven students a year, since McCartney is one of the cofounders of LIPA (there is, after all, no more famous Liverpudlian band than The Beatles). Croll played two of his songs for McCartney, one of which, "Home," ended up on his debut album, "Sweet Disarray" (Capital Records), which drops in the U.S. today.

Asked about the experience of jamming with the former Beatle, Croll says, "It flew by so quickly." McCartney quickly learned Croll's songs and sang along and harmonized. "If I could have popped up a microphone and recorded him singing, that would have been great." Although the visit was short, McCartney made an impression. "He's just incredibly down to earth and humble, a very grounded man. I took away from it that it's always great to be open to people and listen to their music; they might influence you further."

'You Gave Me The Answer' ­ Kevin from the USA asks...

2014 is shaping up to be as busy as ever with Paul announcing a string of new live dates in South America and Japan.

Here at PaulMcCartney.com we use a variety of tactics to keep our energy levels up. More often than not this includes a big box of cupcakes (sometimes sent from Paul) and a lovely cup of tea!

This month's question was sent in by Kevin McCarren from the USA, who asks:

"Where do you get your energy from?"
We spoke with Paul as he prepares to get back 'Out There' on his forthcoming tour of Latin America. He answered:

PAUL: "Thank you for your question, Kevin. My energy comes from Sex & drugs! NO! I'm joking! It's simply from having enthusiasm for life. It never runs out!"

PaulMcCartney.com were fortunate to watch one of Paul's shows from the side of the stage in Tokyo last November and the sight of 50,000 ecstatic fans singing along to every word was simply incredible. Speaking with Paul after the show, he told us that one of the reasons he does what he does is down to the fans; their enthusiasm keeps him enthusiastic.

If you think Wings deserves to be nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...


Should WINGS be nominated into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? There's a debate amongst Beatles/Paul McCartney fans whether Wings is covered by Paul's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a "solo artist." Does Wings qualify as a band and are they worthy with a string of number one hits during the '70s? Should its band members be recognized for their contributions?
