Paul McCartney has announced the first dates of what is planned to be an extensive world tour in 2013. According to a post on his website, the singer and ex-Beatle will play two dates in Poland and Austria at the end of June, with more tour dates to be announced in the coming days. The tour is meant to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Paul’s touring career as a solo artist and, as expected, his setlists will cull equally from his work as a solo artists and as a Beatle. Combined with McCartney’s recently-announced headlining slot at this year’s Bonnaroo Festival, and 2013 is shaping to be a pretty eventful year for Macca.
McCartney also revealed that he is at work on a new album, as well. The album, which has no release date, would follow up last year’s crooner-inspired Kisses From The Bottom, and it will hopefully rock a little harder than that album did.
