UNIVERSITY PARK – Fresh off of historic headline performance at this year’s Lollapalooza hailed as the biggest and best in the festival’s 25-year history, Paul McCartney has confirmed his first-ever performance in central Pennsylvania at Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center, Thursday, Oct. 15 as part of his “Out There” tour.

The specific cost for those packages, and what exactly they include, was not revealed.

The tour features music spanning McCartney’s entire career – as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as one-fourth of The Beatles. The set list also includes material from his most recent studio album “New,” which was released in 2013.

The three-hour show will relive 50 years of music. McCartney’s band of the last 10 years includes Paul “Wix” Wickens on keyboards, Brian Ray on bass/guitar, Rusty Anderson on guitar and Abe Laboriel Jr. on drums.

McCartney and his band have performed 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, played the last-ever show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park where the Beatles played their final concert, and have even been broadcast live into space.

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, McCartney’s best songs, the show is so much more than just an ordinary concert.

McCartney’s concerts attract a multi-generational audience from different backgrounds all brought together by his catalog of classic music.
