ORIGINAL STORY: Beatles and Wings legend Sir Paul McCartney is reportedly planning to tour Australia in 2017, for the first time in almost 25 years.
Sources have reportedly told News Corp Australia that McCartney will perform in Australia this November and December, including at least one show at Melbourne’s AAMI Park.
McCartney hasn’t played in Australia in over two decades, since 1993’s ‘The New World Tour’. He was scheduled to perform down under in 2002, but cancelled the tour following the Bali bombings, saying “now is not the appropriate time for a rock show”.
McCartney performed in Japan in April this year, and will play in the US and Brazil between July and October on his ‘One On One Tour’.
McCartney caused controversy with Aussie fans last year, after he posted an Australia Day message which led fans to call him out for the lack of any new Australian shows.
McCartney’s 2017 Australian tour is supposedly being handled by Michael Gudinski and his companies Frontier Touring and Mushroom Group. Music Feeds has reached out to both for comment.
