Paul McCartney: Out There Tour
Less than an hour ago Kevin Donnelly and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced a major concert event for Winnipeg. Sir Paul McCartney will play Investors Group Field on August 12, 2013.
This is Sir Paul’s first appearance in Winnipeg since his New World Tour played the Winnipeg Stadium in 1993. I was a wide-eyed 23-year-old at the time and it was the biggest show I had ever been to. It’s long been a night that I hoped to repeat. With luck I’ll be in the crowd August 12th at Investors Group Field.
Tickets go on sale April 29, 2013 at 10 am local time. Ranging in price from $35 to $250.

Visibly worn down and physically exhausted from everything we had experienced so far in New York, Dar and I treated ourselves to a short nap before heading out to the second night of incredible music.
The walk to Madison Square Garden seemed shorter this time our tired feet almost seemed to know the way. Perhaps tonight’s performance would be shorter than the marathon 6 hours of music we had rocked to the night before.
The event started out in familiar fashion, Tom Hanks addressing the crowd bringing out the still incredible Jerry Lee Lewis to open the show once again. The elderly rascal belted out Great Balls of Fire in classic form. Even going so far as to kick over his piano bench in a display of youthful enthusiasm.
Next up a red clad Aretha Franklin, took the stage with polished precision.
She rolled though a series of show tunes and a tribute to Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun, before bringing out her first guest of the evening. Annie Lennox, bravely showing her support for Aids research wearing a black Tee emblazoned with the slogan “HIV Positive”.
