Paul Gets Out There In Chile!
is getting back 'Out There'
First live show of 2014 announced!
Monday 21st April Santiago, Chile Movistar Arena
More dates to be announced imminently...
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 concert of the year. Paul will be heading back to Chile in April for the first time since his historic performance on his 'Up & Coming Tour' in 2011.
The 'Out There' tour features music from one of the best loved catalogues in popular music. Paul will perform songs that span 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, which was 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 into Space! Having played with his band (Paul 'Wix' Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass guitar/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr. (drums)) for over ten years now, 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 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 honoured by music bible NME with a special one off award, the 'Songwriter's Songwriter Award' chosen for this unique accolade by his fellow peers.

Paul McCartney: 'We're A Real Band'
The stretch of fine albums Paul McCartney has released in the last decade or so, which includes last year's 'New,' can possibly be attribute to having worked with the same musicians. In a new interview, he speaks highly of the four men who have comprised his touring band since 2002.
"I trust the guys," McCartney told KCSN. "They know what I'm going to do, I know what they are going to do. We surprise each other - and even if it's like, 'I didn't know you were going to do that,' we can all follow it. That's the great thing with a band. And all of us just come to play music. There's no other thing on the agenda. We just love playing together."
Something Else! notes that, with 12 years in his employ, Brian Ray, Rusty Anderson, Paul "Wix" Wickens and Abe Laboriel, Jr., have now played with McCartney for a longer period of time than The Beatles (1962-70) and Wings (which only had three constant members in its decade together). Wickens has been with McCartney since he returned to the road in 1989. McCartney admitted that the time they've spent together kind of snuck up on him.
"A couple of years ago,
I kind of looked at them and said: 'You know what guys? We're
a band. We're a real band,'" he continued. "I think
up until then we'd just been thinking: 'We're getting together,
and playing some songs.' But we're a band now - and that elevated
our performance, I think. When we realized that, we sort of felt
so much better about what we were doing."

McCartney may come to Seoul
A Korean entertainment company said Friday it was seeing progress in talks with Sir Paul McCartney for a concert in Seoul in May. The former Beatles member performing here would mark a major event as the band, which never played in the country before it folded, continues to be arguably the country s favorite foreign music group.
Organizers at 9 Entertainment have already filed papers to the Korea Sports Promotion Foundation, the manager of state-built sporting facilities, to rent the Jamsil Olympic Stadium in southern Seoul on May 28 for the potential concert.
"Renting the venue is a process we have to go through when preparing for the performance of any artist. We are in talks to land (McCartney's) concert here, although the agreement isn t finalized yet," said an official from 9 Entertainment.
A representative from the Korean unit of the Universal Music International Group, McCartney's label, said he had received no information from headquarters about a potential performance here.
"The talks for setting up concerts usually take place between the artist and management people," he said.
"We haven't heard anything official, so we aren t in a position to confirm this.
Beatles fans here expressed disappointment last year when McCartney included Japan in his touring destination to promote his latest album, "New," but not Korea.
As a member of the Beatles, McCartney has been credited for writing many of the band s iconic songs along with the late John Lennon, such as, "Hey Jude," "Yesterday" and "Let It Be."
McCartney was knighted in 1997 by Queen Elizabeth II for his lifetime contribution to culture and humanitarian work.

Paul McCartney to Score Animated Film
Rather than rest on his laurels following the success of his most recent album, 'New,' Paul McCartney has apparently already started work on another project. He will be doing the music for an upcoming animated movie.
Acccording to Billboard, the former Beatle called into Los Angeles' KCSN, which is listener-supported and run out of California State University's Northridge campus, to thank them for their support of his music and broke the news. However, McCartney divulged neither the name of the movie nor the studio, but he did say, "It's like being a kid getting to play with some of the most creative people in the world" in reference to the experience.
Even outside of the Beatles movies and the song 'Spies Like Us,' McCartney is no stranger to film music. His 1967 score for 'The Family Way' was the first solo project by a Beatle, even though it was credited to the George Martin Orchestra. He also composed the music for the 1984 film 'Give My Regards to Broad Street,' which he also starred in and wrote.
The hour-long conversation, which can be heard at KCSN's website, also touched upon the recent slate of tributes commemmorating the 50th anniversary of The Beatles arrival in America, and his connection to his current band. The interview was conducted by programming director Sky Daniels, who admitted to "fighting back tears" while speaking to him.
"When Paul McCartney's
friends sing the praises of KCSN and he feels compelled to listen
and reach out to say thanks," he said. "It validates
the support of our members and the hard work of our staff. It
really is a statement that radio can still touch hearts and minds,
even those of the greatest songwriter of our time."

Linda McCartney: Life Through A Lens
This month's Vogue iPad app features a very special film shot by Glen Luchford to accompany his fashion story styled by Jane How, "Life Through a Lens". The exclusive shoot was inspired by the Seventies wardrobe of Linda McCartney, and includes pieces from Linda's own archive - so nothing seemed more appropriate than using a soundtrack by Paul McCartney. When Vogue initially showed the shoot to him, the musician reportedly nearly cried with nostalgia. Consequently, his song, Maybe I'm Amazed, is the accompanying track.
"Watching the Linda film by Glen and Jane blew me away," said Stella McCartney. "It was as if Mum had come alive in images I had seen as a child. He has captured her free spirit and inner beauty, but the fact that he met her I think shows the impression she left on him.''

Paul McCartney has special dish made for him
Sir Paul McCartney had a special dish made for him at a restaurant in Hollywood.
The vegetarian Please Please Me singer and his wife, Nancy Shevell, ate with his former The Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr and his spouse, Barbara Bach, at upmarket eatery Il Piccolino, but when he couldn't decide what he wanted from the menu, the owner took him to speak to the chef and they came up with an appetising dish.
A source said: "The owner, a friend, escorted the ex-Beatle into the kitchen where Paul - who loves to cook - watched intently as the chef prepared veggies chosen by the star."
The star was then thrilled when he even got a special extra treat with his dinner - the recipe written out just for him.
The source added to National Enquirer magazine: "Paul went back to his table and was thrilled when his repast arrived, complete with the chef's handwritten recipe."
Paul has previously spoken of how much he enjoys the "creative" vegetarian food options available in restaurants.
He said: "Even
20 years ago, it could sometimes be difficult to find vegetarian
options in good restaurants. Now it's great to see more and more
choice with some brilliant creative dishes in restaurants, cafés
and supermarkets. There is definitely now an overall greater acceptance
of being vegetarian."

The Magical Mystery Tour continues: Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell travel in style as they head back to the UK
It's already been a jet-setting start to the year for Paul McCartney and his wife Nancy Shevell who have ticked off France and America as destinations.
And on Thursday the couple added to their list of trips as they were spotted getting ready to board a flight from LA back to London.
Not surprisingly the pair have honed the skill of dressing for travelling, looking very sharp as they made their way through the airport.
Paul, 71, looked much younger than his years wearing a well-fitted black suit with a white shirt unbuttoned at the top.
The Beatles star kept his eyes covered with sunglasses, while his hair was pushed off his face making him look every inch the star he is.
showed off her slim figure in a pair of black leggings over
which she wore a long black top.
Paul and Dave, 45, 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 Grammys recently for their track Cut Me Some Slack.
It has only been a brief stay in LA of Paul and Nancy as just the week before Paul had attended the NME Awards in London where he was honoured with the Songwriters' Songwriter gong.
In his speech,
The Beatles legend revealed how he used to make up stories to
put in the magazine while in the band: 'One of the things we used
to like to try and do was to plant a false story in the NME. We
actually got in with 'George was Billy Fury's cousin', which he
wasn't. Living on the edge, man.'

Paul McCartney Gets By With Help From KCSN Radio
As legendary as Paul McCartney is, he's not above picking up the phone and personally thanking a radio programmer for playing songs from his latest album, "New."
When KCSN Los Angeles program director Sky Daniels arrived at the adult alternative station yesterday (March 6), he received a message that none other than McCartney wanted to speak with him.
Upon calling Jill Weindorf, senior VP of promotion for McCartney's label, Hear Music/Concord Music Group, he learned that McCartney was in Los Angeles shooting a video for "New" track "Early Days" the day before and spent the evening with "friends at dinner," according to Weindorf. Those friends regaled McCartney with stories about KCSN and how it has played cuts from "New," including the title track and second single "Queenie Eye."
Impressed by the station's support, McCartney then called the label and asked how he could contact KCSN to say thanks. From there, McCartney and Daniels chatted for more than an hour.
Listen: Paul McCartney Interview On KCSN Radio
"Paul's call was so thoughtful, I found myself fighting back tears," Daniels says. "He told us of how his friends all loved the station, and [that] they told him that KCSN was playing a number of songs from 'New' and he simply wanted to say thanks."
In the call-turned-interview, McCartney discussed the emotional wave that the recent 50th anniversary of the Beatles' U.S. arrival had created in him; his appreciation for the multiple Grammy Awards that he recently won; and, how happy he is to have developed a "real band" with his longtime touring group of Brian Ray, Rusty Anderson, Wix Wickens and Abe Laboriel, Jr.
McCartney disclosed that he was excited to begin work on a new project: creating the music for a forthcoming animated film. "It's like being a kid getting to play with some of the most creative people in the world," McCartney said. He also expounded on the thrill he still gets from fans' reactions. "When people tell you that you wrote the 'soundtrack to their life,' that's pretty meaningful."
McCartney's gratitude humbled Daniels. "When Paul McCartney's friends sing the praises of KCSN, and he feels compelled to listen and reach out to say thanks, it validates the support of our members and the hard work of our staff. It really is a statement that radio can still touch hearts and minds, even those of the greatest songwriter of our time."
A listener-supported public radio station and a service of California State University, Northridge, 88.5 FM KCSN offers a 24-hour, commercial-free mix of rock, alternative, indie, soul, blues and Americana. McCartney is, obviously, in the mix. The station was also recently added as one of the 32 reporters to Billboard's Triple A radio airplay chart.
"New" debuted at
No. 3 on the Nov. 2 Billboard 200 album chart and has sold 190,000
copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The title cut first single
reached No. 18 on Adult Contemporary and No. 21 on Triple A.

While everyone's at the Dolby Theatre Sir Paul McCartney and Dave Grohl take wives on double date during Oscars night
It was a night when all the
big names in Hollywood were at the Dolby Theatre except for two.
Sir Paul McCartney and Dave Grohl decided against joining the Oscars' festivities to enjoy an evening out with their wives at a vegan restaurant on Melrose Avenue.
With Nancy Shevell
and pregnant Jordyn Blum on their arms, the musicians no doubt
took a chance to celebrate (again) their Grammy win for Best Rock
McCartney, 71, and Grohl, 45, had teamed up with 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, '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.
However, they still dressed up for the occasion, with the musicians in suits and their wives in stylish cocktail dresses.
Nancy, 52, had opted for a sheer blue lace dress with a red underlay, and Jordyn, 37, went for a form-fitting black lace gown which emphasised her baby bump.
McCartney had flown into Los Angeles after attending the NME Awards in London where he was honoured with the Songwriters' Songwriter gong.
In his speech, The Beatles legend revealed how he used to make up stories to put in the magazine while in the band: Sir Paul McCartney said: 'One of the things we used to like to try and do was to plant a false story in the NME. We actually got in with 'George was Billy Fury's cousin', which he wasn't. Living on the edge, man.'
The two couples dined at Crossroads
vegan restaurant of course, because Sir Paul is staunchly against
eating animals or their by-products, but that must have been a
concession for Dave who is most definitely not.
He once complained about sharing a private jet with Coldplay where all the food was vegetarian and no smoking was allowed, however Grohl isn't totally against the lifestyle choice, as detailed in a 2011 tour rider for the Foo Fighters.
In a 52-page document, the band had written: 'Vegetarians. Yep. The Crusades didn't rid the world of them, so we have to pretend to care Chicken is not a vegetarian food. Neither is fish. In fact, if you considered chicken or fish vegetarian, please fire yourself.'

'You Gave Me The Answer' Brendan from Australia asks
Imagine what your life might be like if you had made a few different decisions. For instance, what if you'd taken on a different job, or you had attended a different school / university, or maybe learnt to play a different musical instrument.
Here at PaulMcCartney.com we're still dreaming of one day becoming an astronaut. (NASA, feel free to give us a call!)
Paul had his musical appetite from a young age. That passion for music has led him along a path we all know and love, and it's a path we're very grateful he went down! There have been a lot of adventures along the way, but imagine how different things might be now if Paul had been given a geometry set for his birthday instead of that trumpet!
Brendan Browne from Australia wonders what direction Paul's life might take if he were to go back to school. He asks:
"If you became a full time student, what would you study?"
We spoke with Paul to find out. He replied:
"Good question, thank you Brendan. I love reading and would be interested in studying English literature or history. Or computer studies, which is such a useful skill."
Paul might be after our job soon!)

ROCK AGAINST CANCER - CONCERT AT THE KINGS
PAUL McCARTNEY, BOB GELDOF & BRIAN MAY
BACK ROCK AGAINST CANCER GIG IN TINY VILLAGE PUB
Three of Britain's biggest rock stars - Sir Paul McCartney, Brian May and Sir Bob Geldof - are backing a 'Rock Against Cancer' concert at a pub in a tiny Wiltshire village.
The legends are helping to promote the concert at The Kings Arms in the hideaway hamlet of All Cannings, near Devizes, on Saturday May 31st.
Sir Paul and Queen guitarist Brian May are leading a social media campaign to raise awareness of the cancer charity event.
Live Aid leader Sir Bob is fronting the reformed Boomtown Rats to headline the 'Concert At The Kings' show in the village that has a population of only 630.
'Rock Against Cancer' was an idea thought up by three residents of All Cannings who have each fought with cancer - pub landlord Richard Baulu, sound engineer John 'Grubby' Callis and the village's own local hero, Andy Scott, guitarist with Seventies chart-toppers The Sweet.
They launched the annual event two years ago. Artists including Jeff Beck, Brian May, Roger Taylor, Mike & The Mechanics, Midge Ure and Tom Robinson have performed and help raise more than £35,000 ($58,599) for cancer charities.
This year the organisers are aiming to raise the profile of the little-known gig by asking stars to help a social media campaign by posing in 'Rock Against Cancer' T-shirts - and first to respond were Sir Paul, Brian May and actress-singer Kerry Ellis, star of The Queen musical 'We Will Rock You'.
'We're hugely grateful for this fantastic support to put the concert on the map,' said Richard Baulu. 'It's a great boost for the cause to have such rock giants in our campaign T-shirts.'
Five bands playing hits covering 30 years of rock will perform at this year's event, staged in a field adjoining the Kings Arms beer garden - The Boomtown Rats, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, The Troggs, Paul Young's Los Pacaminos and Dire Straits spin-off The Straits. Money raised from the gig will go to Macmillan Cancer Support and the Bristol hospital oncology support charity Above and Beyond.
'We hoping to take our total raised to over £50,000 ($83,713) this year,' said John Callis, 'We all know friends and family who have been affected by cancer and we realise the huge need for investment in research and support. With all of this help, we will beat this!'

McCartney honoured at NME awards, 50 years after topping bill
Beatles legend Paul McCartney received a standing ovation at the NME awards ceremony in London on Wednesday, where he accepted the influential British magazine's special prize honouring his 50-year-career.
On receiving the magazine's "songwriters' songwriter" award at the annual show, the 71-year-old admitted to guests at the O2 Academy Brixton that he could not explain how he had written some of the most famous pop songs of all time.
"The great thing about songwriting is that you don't know how you do it, so you can't talk about it," he said as he picked up the award from Blur and Gorillaz star Damon Albarn.
The Beatles played at the magazine's annual show in 1963 and topped the bill in 1964 as Beatlemania swept the UK.
Young pretenders Arctic Monkeys picked up where they left off at last week's Brit Awards, winning five prizes including best album for "AM".
Pop princess Lily Allen capped her return from "retirement" by winning the best solo artist award, but suggested fellow nominees David Bowie and Jake Bugg were more deserving of the accolade.
Allen was also on stage to present New York rocker Debbie Harry and her band Blondie with the "Godlike genius" award.
Scottish band Belle & Sebastian won the outstanding contribution to music prize before aiming a playful jibe at David Bowie's plea for Scotland to stay part of the UK.
stay with us -- at least just for a night," joked guitarist
Stevie Jackson. "And if we do leave you, let's stay friends."

Sir Paul McCartney hones his skiing skills in the French Alps while on holiday with wife Nancy Shevell
He's known for being hugely successful as a singer.
And at the age of 71 Sir Paul McCartney has been perfecting another one of his many talents by taking to the French Alps with a personal instructor to hone his skiing skills.
If you could win prizes for looking like the part then The Beatles singer, who is enjoying a break in Megeve, France, with his wife Nancy Shevell, would become a professional in no time.
Paul was pictured looking every inch the esteemed skier in his all-black winter wear as he went for a lesson on Thursday.
He looked in focused mood as he headed onto the snow carrying his ski poles and flanked by his personal instructor, who had skis in hand.
While on the slopes, Paul looked like he had the technique down to a tee as he sped across the snow.
Despite Paul's new hobby, his wife Nancy, 53, doesn't appear to be quite as keen as her husband to take to the ice.
According to The Sun newspaper, she has been steering clear of the icy conditions by staying in their private lodge when the singer heads out to test his skiing skills.
The skiing trip couldn't have come at a better time for Paul, who has been busy in the US for the past month making a special TV show, The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles, to commemorate 50 years since the group first appeared on American television.
During the show, Paul and his bandmate Ringo Starr paid tribute to late Beatle John Lennon - who was shot and killed in New York in 1980 - and George Harrison, who died of lung cancer in 2001.
Drummer Ringo 73, told the audience during the programme: 'We were in a band called The Beatles and whenever we play George and John are always with us.'
The show aired
on CBS on February 9 and featured performances from the likes
of Stevie Wonder, Keith Urban, Katy Perry, John Mayer and Alicia

McCartney returns to South America and Santiago
Paul McCartney's concert promoters are negotiating two shows in Santiago, Chile at Movistar Arena. The shows are booked during the period of April 20-23.
The idea to use the smaller Movistar Arena (that holds 10,000) is so fans can have a more intimate concert experience. The last time McCartney played Santiago (May 11, 2011) was at Estadio Nacional, which held 53,000.
Barrie Marshall, McCartney's tour promoter, arrived this week in Montevideo, Uruguay to meet with the local promoters to finalize concert details.
The unofficial dates and venues for McCartney's 2014 South America tour, so far are:
April 18 -- Centenario Stadium -- Montevideo, Uruguay
April 20 -- 23 (2 shows) -- Movistar Arena -- Santiago, Chile
April 25 -- Estadio Nacional -- Lima, Peru
April 28 -- TBA -- Quito, Eucador
May 1 or 2 -- Palacio de Deportes -- Heredia, Costa Rica
May 28 -- Olympic Stadium -- Seoul, Korea
The dates are expected to be officially announced in the next of couple weeks.
At the moment there are no shows planned for Brazil and Argentina.
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?
