This concert was the first of two dates in Austin, Texas.

From paulmccartney.com, April 4, 2013:

Paul McCartney has announced the date and location of his first ever date in Austin, Texas. Paul’s all-new 2013 “Out There” tour will land at the Frank Erwin Center Wednesday, May 22.

From Paul McCartney – Frank Erwin Center – Austin, TX – HoustonMusicReview.com:

Paul McCartney’s long and winding road trip stopped by The Frank Erwin Center in Austin last week for two sell out shows. It’s kind of hard to believe that McCartney had never played Austin before these shows considering the capital city’s music scene. I was able to make the first night’s show on May 22 and it was beyond expectations. I have seen Sir Paul a handful of times now and have always walked away in awe. The McCartney song book is endless and you can expect to hear “‘Hey Jude”,” Lady Madonna” and “Live and Let Die” for sure but you can also expect to hear a few musical nuggets from left field that makes you say I can’t believe I’m hearing this song live. The surprise tunes at this show included “All Together Now” and “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite”. McCartney mentioned that Mr. Kite was being performed live for the first time on this tour. […]

A rare hiccup was made by Sir Paul when he began “Maybe I’m Amazed”. He actually started playing the number in the wrong key and had to start over.  He light heartedly explained to the crowd that it only proved that he and his band were performing live.  Of course he nailed the second attempt with ease. […]

McCartney is a master at engaging an audience with his charm and wit; but when he came back for the first of two encores flying a massive Texas state flag around the stage the crowd went crazy. […]

Getting ready for #Austin show1. Excited- haven’t played here since 82 w Etta James w the Cobras opening w/ SRV and his bro Jimmy.
