Report: Paul McCartney Plotting South America, European And US Dates
Paul McCartney is rumored to be hitting the road this spring, with U.S. dates being penciled in for November. The Macca Report posted that unconfirmed reports have the former Beatle launching yet another South American leg in April, making multiple stops in Argentina and Brazil. McCartney is said to be plotting a European jaunt, which will include him performing in Poland "around June." McCartney is rumored to be touring the States in the fall "with a New York stop in November."
In addition to prepping his first new official studio set in five years, McCartney's Archive Collection will resume in June with the deluxe reissue of his 1976 triple album live set, Wings Over America. The new collection -- which will include a DVD of the 1980 film of the tour, Rockshow -- follows expanded deluxe reissues of 1970's McCartney, 1971's Ram, 1973's Band On The Run, and 1980's McCartney II.
Paul McCartney told us that there's no great method behind devising his nightly setlists, explaining that it really comes down to common sense: "We just do, first of all what we think the audience might like; secondly, what we like -- which is very important because we can't throw in stuff that they like, but we don't. And then we throw in a bit of things they may not know, but that we think would be interesting because they don't know 'em. And then we look and see what we did last time and we try to do too many of the same numbers. We try to open with something different, so a few little things like that."
