Two South American newspapers reported Feb. 16 and Feb. 17 that Paul McCartney's advance team has been scouting Centenario Stadium in Uruguay this week for a possible concert that could take place this spring, and that other shows in South America may also be in the works.
The newspapers El Pais, which ran their story Feb. 16, and Subraydo, which published its report Feb. 17, both said, according to rough translations, that a production team toured Centenario Stadium on Monday. The papers said the concert in Uruguay could take place at Easter, with El Pais specifying April 18 as a possible date. The Estadio Centenario is a football stadium located in Montevideo, Uruguay that a capacity of over 65,000.
El Pais also mentioned other concerts could take place in Chile, Ecuador and Peru. There has been been no official announcement of any new concerts in 2014 yet by Paul McCartney. He began his 2013 Out There! tour shows May 4 at Mineirão Stadium in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
