Ticket pre-sales for the two dates of Paul McCartney's new 'Out There' tour, just announced this morning, and expanded later in the day with a second show, will begin Thursday, the McCartney website announced Wednesday. The pre-sale only for registered fans of the McCartney.com website will begin at 9 a.m. CET (Central European Time) March 21 through the website.
Early this morning, McCartney announced a first show for the "Out There!" tour in Warsaw, Poland June 22 at National Stadium. A few hours later, McCartney confirmed he will be performing at Vienna's Happel Stadium on June 27. Additional shows for Out There! are also in the works.
It will be McCartney's fourth show in the Austrian capital. His last visit was in 2003 on the Back In The World Tour. He first played there 20 years ago as part of the 1993 New World Tour.
The “Out There!” tour, as it's now called, takes over from the “On the Run” tour, which began at New York's Yankee Stadium on July 15, 2011, and ended at Rexall Place in Edmonton, Canada on Nov. 29, 2012.
In February, McCartney revealed he would headline the diverse lineup at this year's Bonnaroo Festival, also in June.
It's been rumored that McCartney has been also negotiating for shows in Brazil and South America, but there's been no official word of shows in either country yet or anywhere else other than Poland and Vienna.
