Sir Paul McCartney will play three UK shows this coming May. The concerts are part of the singer’s Out There European tour, which will also visit France, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands.
McCartney’s performances in London (23rd May), Birmingham (27th May) and Liverpool (28th May) will be his first shows in the UK since 2012.
He said: “I’m looking forward to taking the Out There tour back to Europe this summer. It’s been a little while since I’ve performed in some of these places so we know it’s going to be a fun tour.
“I hope the audiences enjoy this tour as much as we’ve been enjoying it ourselves all over the world.”
McCartney’s show at The O2 in London on 23rd May falls on the 50th anniversary of him completing his hit single ‘Yesterday’. He said: “For me it’s a happy coincidence that The O2 show falls at this time. It’s great that people all over the world reacted so well to the song, it’s all you can hope for!
“It feels like it has taken on a life of its own over the years. The song still is and always has been an important part of our live show.”
