Well folks, break out your dancing shoes. Our beloved Paul is putting his ever present past behind him, so sorry for the really bad pun there, I had just had to, and he is going to hit the road this fall. We have all been speculating about a world tour for a while. It seems when Memory Almost Full was released, we were simply treated to a few teasers here and there in the form of those small-venue shows.
It now looks like the rest of the world can take part in the party. I hope the set-list gets a few tweaks, it would be nice to hear some of those lesser-heard McCartney gems on this tour. I really, really hope I get to hear House of Wax live though. That song is devastatingly beautiful, and I would love to hear it live. We’ll have to wait and see.
Now that the news of the tour is seeming like all things are a “go.” What are your hopes for the setlist? What songs would you guys like to hear this time around? Please post your McCartney dream setlist in the comments below.
Here’s what we’ve read.
Sir Paul McCartney is planning a huge world tour this autumn in a bid to put his recent divorce woes behind him.
The 65-year-old Beatles legend – whose divorce from former glamor model Heather Mills was finalized last month – told pals the prospect of touring again helped him get through the bitter experience, which saw him fork out a whopping $48.6m settlement.
Dates in the US, Canada, Australia and the UK are all in the pipeline.
A close friend of Sir Paul said: “Paul’s made happy by his family and music. He sees this as a kind of celebration that the messy episode with Heather is over.
“Dates for the autumn are likely to be finalized next month and fans can expect to see an amazing show.”
