Out There 2014
Following The Paul McCartney Tour

Paul Gets Back Out There

After a successful 2013 tour across South America, Europe, North America and Japan, Paul once again took his band "Out There" for another series of concerts.

The band — the members of which have played behind Paul for over ten years — was composed of 'Wix' Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass guitar/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr. (drums).

The "Out There" tour featured music from one of the best loved catalogues in popular music. Paul performed songs that span his entire career — as a solo artist, as a member of Wings and of course as a Beatle. The set list also included material from Paul's most recent studio album NEW, which was a global hit upon its release last year.

A typical Paul McCartney concert is a three-hour experience, in which audiences enjoy not only the music that has been, for many, the soundtrack of their lives, but also an array of technological effects using massive screens with unique video content, lasers, and fireworks.

The 2014 tour began on April 19 in Montevideo, Uruguay, and continued through various venues in South America.

A series of concerts was planned for Japan and one performance in Seoul, South Korea, but upon his arrival in Japan, Paul fell sick with some kind of viral condition, and all of these concerts were canceled.

A quote from the singer on his website said:
Thank you so much for your kind messages of support. I'm so very touched. Unfortunately my condition has not improved overnight. I was really hoping that I'd be feeling better today. I'm so disappointed and sorry to be letting my fans down.

Still feeling the effects of his bout with poor health, Paul, who was originally slated to start a U.S. tour June 14 in Lubbock, Texas, instead postponed all shows through the rest of that month. The postponed shows were rescheduled to October, with the Lubbock date kicking things off on October 2. The rescheduled sets also included shows in New Orleans, Dallas, Atlanta, Nashville, Jacksonville and Louisville, the latter on October 28.

By the beginning of July, Paul felt more like himself, and the United States segement of the tour kicked off in Albany, New York, on July 5.

The USA portion of the tour was then supplemented by a return to South America, where Paul played five extra dates in Brazil.

The 2014 Out There Tour was a huge financial success, with over $12 million in just box office receipts alone. Much more would have been garnered from the sale of souvenir T-shirts and the like.

Every McCartney concert seems extra special. If you have a chance to see Paul perform live, be sure to seize the opportunity ... the show is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience that is "guaranteed to raise a smile."
