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.
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 Target Field as a stop 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 a stop at Target Field on Saturday, August 2.
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.
