PAUL McCARTNEY TO GET BACK ‘OUT THERE’ IN OCTOBER

FIVE NEW NORTH AMERICAN DATES CONFIRMED

October 13: Columbus, Ohio — Nationwide Arena
October 15: State College, Pennsylvania — Bryce Jordan Center
October 17: Toronto, Canada — Air Canada Centre
October 21: Detroit, Michigan — Joe Louis Arena
October 22: Buffalo, New York — First Niagara Center

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 five new North American arena dates on the universally acclaimed ‘Out There’ tour.

First, 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. On October 15, Paul will play his first ever show in State College, PA at the Bryce Jordan Center. October 17 will see Paul back at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre for the first time since 2010 on the ‘Up And Coming’ Tour, followed by an October 21 in Detroit, MI — Paul’s first appearance at the Joe Louis Arena and his first visit to the Motor City since 2011 on the ‘On The Run’ Tour. Finally, Paul will make his concert debut in Buffalo, NY on October 22 at the First Niagara Center.

From Detroit Free Press, October 22, 2015:

The world would probably forgive Paul McCartney for resting on his laurels at this point.

But McCartney, it seems clear, wouldn’t be able to forgive himself. Working up a generous, three-hour, 39-song set Wednesday night for a capacity Joe Louis Arena crowd that included Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, the pop-rock titan served a lesson in living up to one’s towering reputation.

Detroit was a late stop in the 2½-year-old Out There tour, which has a final show in Buffalo on Thursday night before McCartney’s ever-chugging tour machine is expected to at last take on a new name.

Fifty-one years after the Beatles’ first Detroit visit, McCartney made his way to the Joe with plenty of fanfare, courtesy of Live Nation and the Ilitch camp: a welcome billboard on I-94, the colors of the British Union Jack illuminating Motor City Casino, greetings on the marquees of the Fillmore and Fox theaters, a giant banner at Joe Louis.

McCartney seems to be enjoying a burst of wind in his sails in recent years, newly motivated and confident, and that spirit was front and center Wednesday. It was a night of looking back that never made the nostalgia feel like drudgework, a well-traveled show that rarely felt routine. At this point in his career, McCartney seems to be reveling in his life’s legacy, with no drop in the thumbs-up, aim-to-please enthusiasm that has long marked his onstage persona. […]
