Published Sep 07, 2012It's been almost 50 years since Paul McCartney has played a concert in Vancouver, but the former Beatle has announced he will be hitting up Lotusland on an upcoming mini-tour of North America this November.
A press release for Macca's "On the Run" tour has confirmed four new gigs on this side of the pond so far, with U.S. dates lined up in St. Louis and Houston before he heads over to this side of the border.
The Vancouver show takes place November 25 at BC Place. This marks the first time the legendary Brit singer-songwriter has played on the province's soil since the Beatles' played the now non-existent Empire Stadium in 1964 (the building was torn down in 1993). Just as historical will be McCartney's Edmonton performance, his first ever, at Rexall Place on November 28.
McCartney's "On the Run" tour started up in the summer of 2011 and has since found him playing over 30 shows around the globe.
McCartney's latest record is this year's Kisses on the Bottom, though judging by that Wings-referencing tour title, you'll likely be hearing cuts from all over his career. Considering that recent Ram reissue, we're hoping for an encore of "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey."
UPDATE: A second Edmonton show has been added for November 29.
