Great news for music fans this morning as Sir Paul McCartney has announced a few more details of his 2013 world tour, officially titled “Out There!”.
Not only that, but the man has also been working on a brand new record, the follow up to 2012’s “Kisses On The Bottom.”
The living music legend has only announced two tour dates so far – Poland and Australia in late June – but promises that more international stops will be revealed in the coming weeks.
"The tour will see Paul and his band travel the world throughout the year, even visiting some places they've never been before," said a statement on Paul's website where tickets will be available soon.
And if you happen to consider yourself a pretty big McCartney fan and will be heading to your nearest music shop for Record Store Day – observed on the third Saturday of April since 2007 to promote music and independent music stores – look out for his exclusive release of “Maybe I’m Amazed,” a 12” vinyl of the classic Wings track originally released as a radio promo.
And while you’re there, make sure to check out other exclusive Record Store Day promotions from other big name artists such as a 7'' vinyl copy of David Bowie’s 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)'/ 'Where Are We Now?' or the four-track 'Bowie 1965!' EP – both of which are limited to only 1,000 copies.
And in other Sir Paul news, he was reportedly ignored by train passengers when he started performing classic Beatle tunes because they apparently thought he was an everyday pan handler – ouch!
It seems as though he was travelling with his wife in New Orleans when he decided to give passengers an impromptu performance – one that would have come at a very hefty price anywhere else – but the passengers hardly noticed, according to UK mag NME.
