Paul is finaly out there

New ‘Out There!’ tour launched in Belo Horizonte     
Last night, Saturday 4th May, Paul thrilled a sold out audience of 55,000
 people in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The show at the massive Estadio 
Mineirao marked the opening of his all new "Out There" tour, which will travel
 across six countries in the coming months.
The show opened with Eight Days A Week, which Paul had previously
 only played live once with The Beatles in 1965. The setlist included
 many more treats for the fans with the first live performances of 
Beatles classics Your Mother Should KnowBeing For The Benefit Of Mr Kite!
Lovely Rita and All Together Now. Paul also performed his solo 
classic Another Day for the first time since 1993. Wings favourites
 Listen To What The Man Said and Hi, Hi, Hi were also added to the setlist 
having never been performed at a Paul McCartney solo show before. 
We Can Work It Out was also added back into the setlist, Paul last performed
 it at the Glastonbury Festival in 2004.
The show was packed with Paul’s biggest hits spanning his career that have 
become firm live favourites in his shows including Band on the RunHey Jude,
 Live and Let DieYesterday and Let It Be.
The brand new production, which fills over 31 trucks worth of equipment,
 also saw spectacular lasers and lighting, huge pyrotechnics, state of the art
 video displays and a special riser that saw Paul raised up 20ft above the 
stage to perform Blackbird and Here Today acoustically on his own.
 During Hey Jude the audience held up home made ‘Thank You’ signs, a surprise 
for Paul organised by fans on social network sites.
The city of Belo Horizonte gave Paul a warm reception with billboards 
across the town welcoming him. Fans camped outside the stadium in 
the days running up to the show in order to secure the best position when the 
doors opened. Local papers declared ‘Beatlemania’ had come to Brazil as 
Paul’s every move since landing in the city on Friday morning became headline 
news with hundreds of fans lining the streets around the hotel he was staying in.
Last year local fans had started their own petition on Facebook to get Paul to
 play in Belo Horizonte. After securing the endorsement of thousands of
 residents the petition was delivered to Paul’s London office. One of the fans,
 Adriana Mundo (28), who had supported the petition said:
 “When we heard Paul was coming here we couldn’t actually believe it.
 It’s a dream come true for us. We’ve never had anything like this here before. 
It’s such an honour for our city.”

At the end of his show Paul got the girls up on stage from the audience 
who originated the petition – Priscila Brito (27), Luisa Mattos (25), 
Camila Flores (25) and Cecilia Cury (21) – who were shocked by the 
recognition they received from their idol. Paul publicly thanked the girls 
and also signed Cecilia’s Beatles tattoo.

Paul McCartney sings unperformed Beatles tracks on tour

Sir Paul McCartney gave his first ever live rendition of a selection of classic Beatles tracks at the opening night of his world tour in Brazil.
The singer performed tracks such as Your Mother Should Know and Lovely Rita on the first night of his Out There tour in the city of Belo Horizonte.
Many later Beatles tracks were never performed live, after the band called an end to touring in 1966.
The Out There tour will include the US, Canada, Italy, Austria and Poland.
Sir Paul will play three concerts in Brazil this week - before continuing to Florida in the US in the middle of May.
Saturday's gig also saw Beatles' tracks Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite and All Together Now given their first live rendition.
Sir Paul sang Eight Days A Week live for only the second time. The Beatles played it just once in 1965.
The show, attended by 55,000 fans, saw the veteran star performing solo acoustic versions of Blackbird and Here Today on a platform some 20ft above the stage.
