Life at 80: Paul McCartney Hits the Road on 13 Stop Tour To Celebrate Landmark Birthday


This is what life looks like at 80!

Paul McCartney, effervescently young, is hitting the road to celebrate his landmark birthday.

McCartney turns 80 on June 18th. So leading up to that milestone he’s going on tour, playing 13 dates on a “Got Back” tour. The whole thing kicks off in Spokane, Washington on April 28th and ends with a bang on June 16th at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, New Jersey. These are stadium shows, big shows, with all the bells and whistles.

Expect to hear all the hits plus lots of songs from “McCartney III,” Paul’s Grammy nominated album. Hey Paul, please, lots of Beatles and Wings, and “Another Day.” and maybe even “Too Many People.” Please!
