Run includes London's 02 Arena

Paul McCartney has announced details of an upcoming UK tour.

The shows, which are part on his Out There tour, will take place in London, Liverpool and Birmingham. Additionally, McCartney will play shows in France, Holland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

The show at London’s O2 Arena on May 23 is linked with the 50th anniversary of “Yesterday”, which was released as a single in August, 1965.

Speaking about the anniversary, McCartney said: “‘Yesterday‘ 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. It’s always very emotional for me to hear crowds singing it so loudly at my concerts and I’m looking forward to singing it along with the audience at the O2 in May.”

Paul McCartney will play:

Saturday May 23rd – The O2, London, Great Britain
Wednesday May 27th – Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham, Great Britain
Thursday May 28th – Echo Arena, Liverpool, Great Britain

Friday 5th June – Nouveau Stade Velodrome, Marseille, France
Sunday 7th June – ZiggoDome, Amsterdam, Holland
Thursday 11th June – Stade De France, Paris, France

    Yesterday wasn’t released as a single in the UK until 1976. It was “only” a track on the Help! album (released in 1965) until then. So celebrating its anniversary in London in May 2015 seems a little tenuous. Still going though. 11 years since I last saw him at Glastonbury, which was the best gig EVER!
