A South American newspaper website reported Feb. 19 that Paul McCartney will play a concert in Lima, Peru in April. The website Peru21 said the concert would take place April 25 at National Stadium.

"To the delight of his thousands of fans, the former Beatle, Paul McCartney , will return to our country to be in a single show on April 25 at the National Stadium as part of his South American tour," a rough translation of the Peru21 report said.

(Update: A second Peru website, elpopular.pe, reported the April 25 concert date Feb. 20. Their story gave no additional details, however.)

Only two days ago, two other South American newspapers reported a advance team was scouting a concert location in Uruguay.

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 and was scouting it for a Paul McCartney concert. El Pais also mentioned that other McCartney concerts could take place in Chile, Ecuador and Peru. There has been no word on possible concerts in Chile and Ecuador as of yet and none of the concerts have been officially confirmed.

McCartney began his 2013 Out There! tour shows May 4 at Mineirão Stadium in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. A note up currently on McCartney's website reads, “There are currently no forthcoming gigs confirmed. Please keep checking back to PaulMcCartney.com for gig announcements.”
