Paul McCartney announces first dates of his new 2018 #FreshenUpTour with four confirmed shows in Canada. New Album ‘Egypt Station’ on Sept 7th ; Just Added US Dates for 2019 :
Hey Beatles fans, guess what? Paul McCartney has a new album coming out in early September (it’s named ‘Egypt Station‘) and he’s beginning to announce tour dates for his 2018 #FreshenUpTour which will begin in Canada. As of this moment though, he’s only released 4 dates, but there a lot more coming (according to his PR team). If you haven’t seen Paul McCartney in concert, you surely are missing out. First are the many, many songs by The Beatles that he performs, then add in the music and songs by Wings, and all his other solo work. Paul McCartney has one of the largest libraries of his own music, which could provide hours upon hours of entertainment to any fan. Realize that Paul McCartney is no ‘spring chicken’. He’s recently turned 76 years old (on June 18th to be exact), yet when it comes to live performances, he has not slowed down one bit. Seeing him live is like seeing a Beatles concert, in my opinion. I hope his tour brings him to my state of New Jersey (or New York would be fine) so that I can go and enjoy his live show, but I’ll just have to wait a bit for more dates to be released.
So far, he’s only announced a small handful of Canadian dates; Quebec City, Montreal, Winnipeg and Edmonton; and some US dates for 2019. From what we have seen on social media, his fans up in Canada are going absolutely insane with joy, and I don’t blame them one bit. Did you know that one of the most covered songs in all of music, is ‘Yesterday’ by The Beatles. Did you also know that Paul McCartney has won 18 Grammy Awards? He’s also been Knighted by the Queen of England. The only thing I could see making this upcoming tour better, would be some surprise appearances by Ringo Starr (who was the drummer for The Beatles). Seeing and hearing those two on stage would just make me ecstatic. Let’s hope that happens. When asked about the first bunch of Canadian tour dates, Paul stated “We’ve always had such a fantastic time playing shows in Canada. We can’t wait to return in September for what should be another special run of shows. We are looking forward to freshening up our show and playing some of our songs from the new album alongside those songs we know you like to hear. Get ready to rock Canada!”
