In the first 18 months since its launch, Paul's incredible 'Out There' tour has been seen by almost two million people around the world. So far, this tour has seen Paul and his band perform a total of 64 shows in 12 different countries in venues of all different shapes and sizes.

Today, Paul announces plans to come back to Europe this year for nine special dates in places he's not yet visited with his current tour. The shows will include his first concerts in the UK since 2012's special Teenage Cancer Trust show at the Royal Albert Hall. His London date marks his 50th ever performance in London as a solo artist. Paul will return to France for two concerts for the first time since being awarded France's highest award, the Legion of Honour, in 2012 for services to music. The last time that Paul visited the Dutch capital of Amsterdam was when he toured with Wings in 1972. In July the tour will see Paul and his band at their first European festival in five years with a headlining slot at Denmark's Roskilde. The show in Norway, Oslo sees him returning after last playing there as part of 2004's 'O4 Summer Tour' and his show in Stockholm will be his first there since 2011's 'On The Run' tour.

These new shows will mark the second time the 'Out There' tour has come to Europe since June 2013 when Paul performed in Poland, Italy and Austria.

Speaking about the tour dates, Paul told us:
"I'm looking forward to taking the 'Out There' tour back to Europe this summer. It's been a little while since I've performed in some of these places so we know it's going to be a fun tour. I hope the audiences enjoy this tour as much as we've been enjoying it ourselves all over the world."

The 'Out There' tour features music from one of the best loved catalogues in popular music. Paul will perform songs that span his entire career - as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle. The set list will also include material from Paul's most recent studio album 'NEW', which was a global hit upon its release in 2013.

The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime moment all music fans should experience. The three hour concert includes some of the greatest moments from the last 50 years in music, many of which have shaped the soundtrack of our lives. Paul and his band have performed in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow's Red Square, at Buckingham Palace and the White House. He has played a free show in Mexico's Zocalo to over 400,000 people and even broadcast live into Space! Having played with his band (Paul 'Wix' Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass guitar/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums)) for over ten years now, the show never disappoints.

The 'Out There' tour uses state of the art technology and production to ensure the entire audience has the best possible experience. With massive screens, lasers, fireworks, unique video content and the best songs in the world, a Paul McCartney show is so much more than just an ordinary concert.
Before the tour arrives in Europe for these new dates in May, Paul will first play shows in Japan and South Korea.

2015 got off to a flying start for Paul with the release of new chart topping collaborations with Kanye West and Rihanna as well as a performance together at the Grammys. A couple of weeks later and Paul performed a surprise intimate Valentine's Day gig at New York's Irving Plaza, which became the city's hottest ticket. On the same weekend Paul appeared and played on Saturday Night Live's 40th Anniversary prime time special (not to mention a massive all-star jam at the show's special after party).
