Sir Paul McCartney announced his return to New York with a pair of shows at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in June.
McCartney announced the new dates to his “Out There Tour” on his website. According to the statement, “Paul has confirmed that his all-new 2013 "Out There" tour will include two New York shows: On June 8 and 10, Paul will play the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.”
This will be the first time McCartney plays Barclays Center but Sir Paul is no stranger to New York. As the statement notes, “The first-time engagement for Paul at the venue is his first New York appearance since last year's historic 12-12-12 benefit and continues a tradition of legendary NYC area McCartney concerts including 2011's Yankee Stadium doubleheader, 2009's inaugural Citi Field three-play, and stretching all the way back to The Beatles' 1965 musical christening of Shea Stadium.”
Tickets for McCartney’s Barclays Center shows will range from $69.50, $83.10 with fees, to $304.50, $349.40 with fees. Tickets go on sale April 22, 10 a.m. EST.
McCartney’s “Out There” tour coincides with his headlining appearances at Bonnaroo in June and San Francisco’s Outside Lands Music Festival in August. Beginning in July, McCartney will be playing at several baseball stadiums around America including Fenway Park.
