As tickets go on sale April 29 for several Paul McCartney shows, the McCartney website released an update list of sold out shows Monday showing a third of the shows are sold out. And new reports from Lubbock, Texas and Minneapolis say that tickets in those cities sold out very fast.

CBS Local in Minneapolis reported April 28 that the Aug. 2 show there sold out in 20 minutes, though they said some tickets could be released before the show takes place. Meanwhile, Lubbock, the opening U.S. date, is also sold out, according to Fox34News.

Besides Lubbock and Minneapolis, the sellout list includes New Orleans, Dallas, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Louisville, Albany and Pittsburgh, PA. Presale tickets for Phoenix, San Francisco and Los Angeles go on sale at 9 a.m. local time Tuesday. Tickets for the U.S. shows are available here and here.

Julian speaks: Julian Lennon is on the cover of the Spring 2014 issue of MedlinePlus magazine. In an interview titled on the cover “Solving the Painful Riddle of Lupus,” Lennon talks about how he became an advocate for the disease and recalls his childhood friend, Lucy Vodden, the inspiration for “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.”

Seeger Fest watch: Kitama Cahill-Jackson, Pete Seeger’s grandson and Gina Belafonte, Harry Belafonte’s daughter, will hold a press conference in midtown Manhattan Wednesday morning to announce the participants in Seeger Fest, a five-day event honoring the lives and legacy of the late Pete and Toshi Seeger. The event will include community activities, a memorial service and two free large-scale concerts in Manhattan.

The performers could include some very interesting names, Beatles Examiner has learned. The producers of the event include music activist/producer Jason Samel, best known as producer for “Occupy This Album,” which featured Yoko Ono, Steve Earle, David Crosby and Graham Nash, Arlo Guthrie and Willie Nelson.

No sale: The piece of the Ed Sullivan Theater wall signed by the Beatles went unsold in Heritage Auctions' sale, ABC News reported Monday. They said the auction house will now try to sell it privately. The asking price is a mere $965,000 (including auction fees).
