Published Aug 21, 2015While the youth of today may know him better as the old guy from that Rihanna video, there are plenty of fans from other generations that would be excited to see Paul McCartney live — and they're in luck.
Macca will be continuing his world travels on the "Out There" tour this fall, and he has now confirmed a Toronto date at the Air Canada Centre on October 17.
"I am pleased to welcome Sir Paul McCartney to perform in our city," said Toronto Mayor John Tory in a press release. "One of my first acts as Mayor was to get to work on making Toronto a more music friendly city, and hosting an artist like Sir Paul McCartney is another example of how growing the music culture in Toronto is delivering results. Music not only creates jobs, it attracts investment, and I will continue to focus on making music an integral part of the cultural and economic fabric of our city."
McCartney will be performing hits from across his decades-spanning career, including beloved hits from his work with the Beatles and Wings, as well as solo material. The press release also notes that attendees can expect "massive screens, lasers, fireworks, unique video content and, of course, the best songs in the world."
Tickets for the Toronto show will go on sale August 28, with an American Express pre-sale running from August 25 to 27.
