Following an incredible 2013 which saw Paul's universally acclaimed 'Out There' tour launch in Brazil and visit 23 cities across South America, Europe, North America and Japan, today Paul confirms he'll be getting back out there in the U.S. by announcing his first Stateside dates of 2014. In addition to his dates this month in Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Costa Rica, and his return to Japan and first ever performance in Korea in May, Paul has confirmed the first four stops of an upcoming summer trek through North America:

* On June 19, Paul will return to New Orleans for the first time since his Driving USA Tour in 2002.

* Paul will play his first shows ever in Louisville KY and Albany NY, respectively, June 26 at the Yum! Center and July 5 at the Times Union Center.

* July 7 will see Paul returning to Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center for the first time since opening the arena with a pair of instantly sold out shows August 18 and 19, 2010.

The 'Out There' tour, as always, features music from the most beloved catalog in popular music, as Paul performs songs spanning his entire career--as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle. The set list will also include material from Paul's most recent studio album NEW, a global hit upon its release last year.

The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity; in just three hours some of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music are relived; music which for many has shaped the very soundtrack of their lives. The last decade has seen Paul and his band perform in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow's Red Square, Buckingham Palace, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people, and even broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul's band of the last 10+ years--Paul "Wix" Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums)--the show never disappoints.

The tour also uses state of the art technology and production to ensure the entire audience has the best possible experience. With massive screens, lasers, fireworks, unique video content and, of course, the best songs in the world, a Paul McCartney show is so much more than just an ordinary concert. Paul's shows attract a multi generational audience from different backgrounds all brought together by his music.

2014 got off to an incredible start for Paul as he set a personal career best by winning an incredible five GRAMMY Awards in one night. In the UK he was honored by music bible NME with a special one off award, the 'Songwriter's Songwriter Award' chosen for this unique accolade by his fellow peers.

Tickets will be on sale Monday, April 14 at 10 a.m. local time.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Thursday, April 10 at 10 a.m. through Sunday, April 13 at 10 p.m.

I like a lot of Paul's solo stuff, but I'm an absolute Beatles psycho. And I've managed to not see him yet. I really hope to change this on this tour, especially as the potential for future tours gets smaller.

Seeing Paul in concert would be an amazing opportunity if I were made of money.

I was lucky enough to finally see Paul perform in 2011 at Wrigley Field. It was a 3-hour set full of both Beatles songs and solo stuff and I'll remember that particular show for the rest of my life. If you've never seen him live before and are wanting to, definitely go for it. You won't regret it.

I saw him in 2005; however, I had to pay $360 to make that happen. I would love to see him again, but I don't think that's possible at this point in time.

The first time I saw him (I've seen him one more time since) I went with my mom 6 years ago to see him at Fedex Field and over the hundreds of shows I've been to over the years, his was the best. I'm a huge Beatles fan and his solo stuff is great too, so you get a nice mix of his career.

I often tell people that Live and Let Die into Hey Jude was the most euphoric 10 minutes of my life... pure happiness encapsulated by music.

I've seen him twice (Once is 2003, once in 2012) . Worth it every time. A majority of his set is Beatles Stuff; plus the man is an absolute machine. 3 Straight hours no breaks.

I was there too - I was going to see Casey Crescenzo half way through his set originally, but I couldn't pull myself to do it, and stayed through his entire set. Also, my friend who went with me got split up from me, and got so wasted during Wu-Tang's set that she missed all of Paul McCartney. Good times!
