PAUL McCARTNEY TO GET BACK “OUT THERE” IN OCTOBER
NEW NORTH AMERICAN DATES CONFIRMED
October 13: Columbus, Ohio — Nationwide Arena
October 17: Toronto, Canada — Air Canada Centre
Fresh off an undeniably historic headline performance at this year’s Lollapalooza hailed without exception as the biggest and best in the festival’s 25 year history, Paul McCartney has confirmed another new North American arena date on the universally acclaimed ‘Out There’ tour.
Paul will return to Columbus, OH nearly 10 years to the day since his last appearance in the Ohio capital city to headline the Nationwide Arena on October 13. October 17 will see Paul back at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre for the first time since 2010 on the ‘Up And Coming’ Tour.
Can’t wait to see all of you #OutThere in #Columbus tonight! R>O>C>K> !!Brian Ray, from Twitter, October 13, 2015
From The Columbus Dispatch, October 14th 2015:
Paul McCartney has nothing left to prove. After nearly three hours and three dozen songs Tuesday night at Nationwide Arena, any doubters surely came around. Yes, he played “those songs,” many, many of them. He dressed them in a half-dozen or so Wings songs and a few new ones from his most recent release, 2013’s New.
The 73-year-old exhibited confidence, humility, an easy sense of humor, and a contagious feeling of fulfillment that made even the most common, overly familiar Beatles hit, if not new again, certainly alive and well worth revisiting. […]
It helped that he had one of the finest bands on the road today. In fact the four of them — Rusty Anderson on guitar, Brian Ray on guitar and bass, Paul “Wix” Wickens on keyboards and the incredible Abe Laboriel Jr. on drums — rocked hard, sounded like twice as many musicians, and consistently found the right tone and beat to accompany the aged singer and material.
That’s not to say that McCartney wasn’t physically up to the task. Near the end, it seemed the audience would tire first, the band second and McCartney third. […]
McCartney came armed with perhaps the simplest stage set accompanying a major artist out there today. His quintet played every note with very little spectacle, other than the flash pots on Live and Let Die. But he didn’t need any of it.
