Paul McCartney Adds Japan Dates To His “Out There” Tour

by Karen Freedman on July 16, 2013

in Live,News

Paul McCartney has just added Japanese dates to his “Out There” tour making an Australian tour now very likely.

In November, he and his band – Brian Ray (guitar/bass), Rusty Anderson (guitar), Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards) and Abe Laboriel Jr. (drums) – will play five shows in Japan.

His last visit to the Land Of The Rising Sun was in November 2002, where he performed three sellout shows in Tokyo and two more in Osaka.

McCartney played his 17th gig of his “Out There” tour in Indianapolis on Monday night, and plays Milwaukee’s Miller Park this evening. His shows are legendary with nearly three hours of spectacular performances from what is arguably pop’s richest back-catalogue.

The “Out There” tour began 4th May in Brazil and McCartney and his band have performed in cities including Memphis, Warsaw, Verona (in a 1st Century amphitheatre), Vienna, Ottawa and Boston.

Four of the five Japan tour dates have been confirmed so far:

15th November : Fukuoka Dome
18th November : Tokyo Dome
19th November : Tokyo Dome
21st November : Tokyo Dome
with a further concert in Osaka yet to be announced.

With just a mere 5086 miles (8184 km) and a paltry 10 hours and 3o minutes flying time between Tokyo and Melbourne, let’s hope that Sir Paul makes a welcome return to Australia soon.

It’s only been 20 years!
