    NEWS - Paul McCartney Announces Driving USA Tour Dates
    02/28/2002



    (2/28/02, 5 p.m. ET) -- Paul McCartney has announced the itinerary for his upcoming Driving USA tour. The trek kicks off April 1 at the Oakland Arena in Oakland, California, and continues for 20 shows before wrapping up May 18 at the National Car Rental Center in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

    It's a much longer tour than McCartney originally planned--he announced on the Super Bowl that he would play a total of 15 dates before ending at Madison Square Garden in New York City. He's now stretched the road stint to 20 concerts after promoters asked him for more dates, and McCartney said, "I'm chuffed to be asked to stay longer on the road. Hopefully this will make the tour more of a trip.

    He's also making the people in Las Vegas very happy, by playing shows there at the MGM Grand on April 5 and 6. That's the same weekend the Lennox Lewis/Mike Tyson heavyweight bout was supposed to take place. After the city denied Tyson a license to box, local leaders scrambled to find something to make up the expected revenue shortfall from losing the title fight and reportedly campaigned hard for McCartney to add the city to his routing.

    The first seats, for the Las Vegas shows, go on sale Monday (March 4), with all seats being made available by March 24. Contact your local ticket seller for more information.

    McCartney is also in the midst of setting his international tour plans, but no information was available at press time.

    The setlist will comprise solo, Wings, and Beatles songs, and will be performed by guitarist Rusty Anderson and drummer Abe Laboriel Jr., both of whom were in the band for McCartney's latest solo album, Driving Rain. The band will also include Wix, who has toured and recorded with McCartney in the past, and Brian Ray.

    The Paul McCartney itinerary (subject to change):

    April 1 - Oakland, CA - Oakland Arena (on sale March 10)

    April 3 - San Jose, CA - Compaq Center At San Jose (on sale March 10)

    April 5,6 - Las Vegas, NV - MGM Grand Hotel (on sale March 4)

    Yeah, I'd love to see Macca too, but I shudder at the thought of what the ticket prices will be.
