The wait for summer is over and so is the wait for the legions of PAUL McCARTNEY fans whose cities have NEVER played host to a night of history Macca-style. Set to kick-off on Tuesday, May 25th at Gijon's El Molinon Stadium, Macca's NEW, 13-city "04 Summer Tour" will be highlighted with 7 first-time performance visits as well as 5 concerts in cities that haven't rocked with him since 1989's "Get Back World Tour" or 1993's "New World Tour".
"Touring really has been a lot of fun for us and the audiences have been great," said McCartney. "So why stop now? I'm looking forward to playing and to visiting some new places."
The all-stadium "04 Summer Tour", which will feature music from The Beatles, Wings and McCartney's solo career, is currently set to play to nearly 700,000, which would bring to more then 3 million, who have seen McCartney since his return to the road in April 2002.
Among many of the highlights of "04 Summer Tour" are sure to be Macca's return to Russia, for a special performance in St. Petersburg's Palace Square, as well as his first-time visits to Lisbon, Leipzig, Prague and Horsens before closing out the all-stadium tour with a special appearance at The Glastonbury Festival.
In addition, Macca is looking forward to performances in Madrid, Gothenburg, Zurich, Oslo and Helsinki, cities that haven't seen him in more then a decade. A return to Paris is also planned for Thursday, June 24th, where McCartney's critically hailed "Back In The World" Tour began last March.
