Plans for the European leg of the McCartney world tour were announced today. The tour will begin in Paris on March 25 and end in Dublin on May 27. It was also announced that a modified edition of his Back in the U.S. CD, to be called Back in the World, will be released on March 17 and will include four songs that were not included on the American album, She's Leaving Home, Calico Skies, Michelle, and Let 'Em In. The Back in the U.S. DVD will also be released internationally on March 17.
Sir Paul said in a statement released today:"I had a lot of fun touring this show across America last year and instead of been exhausted I felt exhilarated because I am enjoying it so much. I'm looking forward to playing through Europe and bringing the show back home to Britain. I think the crowd is going to like this gig -- when I was thinking of what songs to play I just imagined myself as one of the audience and thought 'What would I like to hear him play?' So that means we'll be playing some of my Beatles stuff -- rather a lot of Beatles stuff, actually -- some Wings stuff and some more recent stuff; so basically the show pretty much spans my whole career. And I'm really getting off on playing it all with my new band; their energy and musicianship is phenomenal."In another statement announcing his Dublin appearance, Sir Paul added:"My mother hailed from Ireland so playing in Dublin will be special, and nd it's where Heather and I chose to be married."
