Paul McCartney has announced that he is bringing his “Out There” tour to the UK and Europe in May, including stops in Liverpool, London and Birmingham.
The London gig at The O2 will be his 50th gig in London as a solo artist. He’ll also be celebrating the 50th anniversary of one of his best known songs, “Yesterday”. McCartney said of the anniversary:
I’m often never aware of these anniversaries until someone points it out. People always say to me ‘hey, did you know it was 30 years since this and 30 years since that’, so it’s impossible to stay on top of it all. But I never need an excuse to celebrate so it’s always nice to hear!
For me it’s a happy coincidence that The O2 show falls at this time. It’s great that people all over the world reacted so well to the song, it’s all you can hope for! It feels like it has taken on a life of its own over the years.
The song still is and always has been an important part of our live show. It’s always very emotional for me to hear crowds singing it so loudly at my concerts and I’m looking forward to singing it along with the audience at the O2 in May.
