2015PaulMcCartney_Press_050215Sir Paul McCartney has today announced his first set of U.K. shows in three years in which he will bring his band to Liverpool’s Echo Arena.

The 72-year-old is due to play the arena on Thursday May 28, as part of the legendary Liverpool singer’s ‘Out There’ tour launched over 18 months ago, also taking his show to London and Birmingham.

The musician said: “It’s always great when you get to play in your home country. It’s been a little while since I’ve performed here so we’re planning a few surprises and looking forward to playing some songs we’ve never played here. We’ve taken this tour all over the world but there’s nothing quite like rocking out with your home audience. We’ll see you soon.”

The ‘Out There’ tour has been notable for it’s heavy use of pyrotechnics and mix of newer and classic songs in a three hour live show which has been called Macca‘s most ambitious yet 6 decades into his enviable career.

McCartney has also added dates in Amsterdam, Oslo, Marseille and a headline slot at Delaware’s Firefly Music Festival. The singer recently teamed up with Kanye West and Rihanna on the track ‘FourFiveSeconds’, and will appear on both artists’ upcoming 2015 albums.

Tickets will be available from the Echo Arena website from 10am on Monday the 9th of March, with prices starting at £71.50.
