From paulmccartney.com, April 1, 2013:

Paul McCartney has announced the date and location of the first confirmed U.S. date of his all new 2013 “Out There” tour:

On Tuesday, July 9, Paul will play Boston’s Fenway Park, returning by popular demand for the first time since his August 5 & 6, 2009 shows set the record for the highest ever two-day concert attendance in the history of the storied ballpark.

From Paul McCartney Gets #OutThere In Boston – YouTube:

July 9th saw Paul’s all-new “Out There” tour arrive in Boston to play the city’s Fenway Park. Before the show, Paul received a State Senate official citation in recognition of his “vast contributions to music and animal rights activism” from Massachusetts State Senator Bob Hedlund. Paul’s gig – his first visit to the home of the Boston Red Sox since August 2009 – broke his previous record for the largest single concert attendance in the history of the venue!

From Concert review: Paul McCartney wows crowd at Fenway Park in Boston – masslive.com, July 10, 2013:

BOSTON – Somewhere in a musty attic in Liverpool there has to be a portrait of an aging Paul McCartney because the guy who rocked out Fenway Park Tuesday night sure didn’t act like a 71-year-old.

The former Beatle played for two hours and 40 minutes at the venerable ballpark and treated fans to 38 songs. (A far cry from the 11-song set The Beatles played during a half hour show at Suffolk Downs back in 1966).

One of the richest men on the planet, a knight of the realm, and driving force behind some of greatest songs ever recorded, McCartney surely doesn’t need the cash or adulation he received at the sold-out show. Clearly, Sir Paul still finds joy in playing out. […]

The two opening songs gave a hint of what to expect during the night. McCartney appeared to be even more inclined to mine the truly deep tracks of his catalog on this “Out There” tour than he has in past outings.

Even hardcore Beatlemaniacs had be surprised when he pulled out songs like the dance hall flavored “Your Mother Should Know” and sing-along “All Together Now” from The Beatles’ “Magical Mystery Tour” and “Yellow Submarine” films, respectively. Fans of his early solo work were treated to performances of his first post-Beatles single “Another Day” and the Wings hit “Hi, Hi, Hi.”

This is not to imply McCartney ignored his staggering collection of chart-topping hits.

Among the powerhouse moments at Fenway: “All My Loving,” first heard by American fans during The Beatles’ Feb. 9, 1964 debut on The Ed Sullivan Show; “Eleanor Rigby” with George Martin’s string quartet arrangement skillfully recreated by keyboardist Paul Wickens; and the inspirational “Let It Be,” title track from the Fab Four’s swan song album. […]

A concert postscript: Fans who arrived early along Yawkey Way could listen in on McCartney’s amazing soundcheck, which included tunes ranging from Buddy Holly’s “It’s So Easy” to The Beatles’ “Penny Lane.” Other numbers included “San Francisco Bay Blues,” “Midnight Special,” “C Moon,” and “Ram On.”
