Paul McCartney announced April 21 that his first show originally scheduled for Monday in Santiago, Chile had been rescheduled for Wednesday. A statement issued by the McCartney press office said a plane carrying equipment for the tour failed to arrive in time in Santiago after the Out There! tour's first 2014 show in Montevideo, Uruguay on Saturday.
“Though I'm upset that the jumbo jet carrying all my equipment for the show has gone technical and will not arrive in Santiago in time for the show tonight, I will not cancel the concert,” McCartney said in a statement. “I would hate to disappoint our great Chilean fans so we are moving the Monday show to Wednesday this week and looking forward to having a rocking time in Santiago.”
Following the two shows in Chile, McCartney's Out There! tour continues its Southern Hemisphere part of the tour with shows in Lima, Peru; Quito, Ecuador; and San Jose, Costa Rica before heading to Tokyo, and then on to the U.S.
The U.S. section of the tour currently includes a total of 15 shows in the U.S. Five new shows were announced Monday for Chicago, Fargo, N.D., Lincoln, Neb., Kansas, Mo. and Minneapolis, Minn. Fans registered with McCartney's website will be eligible to purchase pre-sale tickets beginning at 10 a.m. local time April 23. To be eligible for the pre-sale, you must be registered with the website by 6 a.m. EDT Wednesday.
Shows had been previously announced for Texas in Lubbock and Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Ga., Jacksonville, Fla., Nashville, Tenn., Louisville, Ky., Albany, N.Y., Pittsburgh and Salt Lake City. Tickets for many shows are available here, here and here. And McCartney's website indicates still more shows have yet to be announced.
