The first leg will see McCartney play shows in Portland, Seattle and Vancouver with more to be confirmed

Paul McCartney has revealed the first string of US dates as part of his “One On One” tour.

A press release promises a newly redesigned set, as well as “no shortage of surprises.” McCartney’s previous tour, “Out There”, concluded last October.

The news comes following the passing of Beatles producer George Martin, who McCartney described as “a true gentleman”.

He added: “He guided the career of The Beatles with such skill and good humour that he became a true friend to me and my family. If anyone earned the title of the fifth Beatle it was George.

“From the day that he gave The Beatles our first recording contract, to the last time I saw him, he was the most generous, intelligent and musical person I’ve ever had the pleasure to know.”

Tickets for McCartney’s tour go on sale Monday, March 14 at 10am. The first seven dates are as follows:

04-13 Fresno, CA – SaveMart Arena
04-15 Portland, OR – Moda Center
04-17 Seattle, WA – Key Arena
04-19-20 Vancouver, British Columbia – Rogers Arena
04-30 Little Rock, AR – Verizon Arena
05-02 Sioux Falls, SD – Denny Sanford Premier Center
