Sir Paul has announced that in April he will embark on a 14 concert tour of the United States he calls Drivin' USA. This will be his first tour in almost 10 years, the last being his New World Tour of 1993. Drivin' USA will begin in California, move across the United States (with a concert stop in Canada) and end in New York city. From there, Sir Paul will take his tour to at least five European countries during the month of May.
Sir Paul promises to present a show like nothing he has ever staged before. He said, "I'm very excited to be getting back on the road, playing a with a new band and including some of the songs that I haven't played live before."
More details about the tour are to be announced shortly, but meanwhile, here are some statistics that were provided in Sir Paul's announcement: he has performed 1,400 concerts
with the Beatles, 142 with his group Wings and 195 as a solo artist.
