Paul McCartney’s US Tour

Totally the cute Beatle

Seemingly out of nowhere, Paul McCartney is doing a “tour”. I say “tour” because there are very few shows, and it seems he’s just doing them as he wants to. Which, frankly, if you’re nearing 70 and you’re a Beatle, you’ve pretty much earned the right to do. Anyway, the tour, in its entirety, is:

July 17 – New York, Citi Field
July 18 – New York, Citi Field
July 21 – New York, Citi Field
August 1 – Washington, FedExField
August 5 – Boston, Fenway Park
August 6 – Boston, Fenway Park
August 15 – Atlanta, Piedmont Park
August 17 – Tulsa, BOK Center
August 19 – Dallas, Cowboys Stadium

More of a mini-tour, really. And yes, you read that right: he’s doing a show in Tulsa-freaking-Oklahoma. Kudos to Tulsa for opening the BOK Center; that place has done them well. The tickets for the NYC shows are all sold out (they sold out basically as soon as they went on sale). The tickets for his Tulsa show go on sale July 20th…if I were in Oklahoma, you know I’d be on top of that. Because, let’s be frank: how many tours can he have in front of him?

And yes, I’m going to see Paul at Citi Field. July 18th. I cannot wait!!!

Now, in honor of the recently departed Michael Jackson: his and Paul’s better collaboration (I don’t really dig “The Girl is Mine”). This video features:
– Michael Jackson, before he was creepy and before he stole all of Paul’s Beatles’ songs
– Paul’s less-than-stellar 1980s work
– Linda needlessly lurking around, Yoko Ono-style
– LaToya (I think…) playing the object of MJ’s affections. If that’s true: ewwwww
