The whirlwind of news from Paul McCartney over the past couple of weeks has reached dizzying heights — from news of his upcoming album, Egypt Station, to the premiere of two tracks and an Internet-breaking Carpool Karaoke bit with James Corden, it’s been wild.
Along the way, Sir Paul has hinted at an upcoming tour, and now he’s revealed it … or, at least part of it. Dubbed the Freshen Up Tour, Macca detailed the news regarding four Canadian dates for September, with more obviously coming soon:
September 17: Quebec City, QC – the Videotron Centre
September 20: Montreal, QC – Bell Centre
September 28 – Winnipeg, MB – Bell MTS Place
September 30 – Edmonton, AB – Rogers Place
Paul will make his eagerly anticipated return to the road with his new #FreshenUpTour. Four confirmed dates were announced this morning, marking Paul’s first series of live dates since the ‘One On One’ tour that played to some two million fans over the course of 2016 and 2017.
More, from Paul’s official site:
As previously announced, Paul will follow ‘Freshen Up’s’ Canadian run with headline sets at the17th annual Austin City Limits Music Festival. The historic bill includes Paul’s debut ACL Fest performance and only North American festival appearance of 2018, topping a lineup featuring Metallica, Childish Gambino, Arctic Monkeys, Travis Scott, The National, Hozier, St. Vincent, Janelle Monáe and more than 100 other artists playing Zilker Park, October 5 – 7 and October 12 – 14. Tickets are available now at www.aclfestival.com.
Stay tuned — once Paul’s camp rolls out news like this it tends to keep coming until full tour details are unveiled.
Egypt Station will be released on September 7 via Capitol Records.
