Paul McCartney announces three more Freshen Up tour dates

Tickets on sale September 17th at 10 am local time

Paul McCartney has added three new dates to his eagerly anticipated Freshen Up tour, making for a total of eight confirmed shows on McCartney’s first Stateside run since the One On One Tour that played to some two million fans around the world during 2016 and 2017.

The Freshen Up tour is McCartney’s first outing in support of his brand new studio album, Egypt Station, released September 7th on Capitol Records and generating rave reviews: Rolling Stone has raved, “Macca keeps adding new gems to his songbook, with nothing to prove except he’s the only genius who can do this… And, oh yeah — in his spare time, he happens to still be the greatest live performer on Earth,” while Entertainment Weekly described the album as “the still-vital life force of a superstar who has been there and everywhere and is glad just to be here now.”

The U.S. leg of Freshen Up will now open with McCartney’s return to New Orleans on May 23rd, where he will rock the Smoothie King Arena for the first time since 2014. On June 3rd, McCartney will make his live debut in Fort Wayne IN, playing the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. And on June 26th, McCartney will visit the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, AZ, another city he hasn’t played in four years.
