Paul McCartney To Tour Australia Late 2013?

Everyone’s favourite currently alive ex-Beatle Paul McCartney could be heading to Australia as early as November, with rumours swirling that Macca might pop Down Under right after his recently announced tour of Japan.

The biggest tip off so far is that Ticketek have put a waitlist up online encouraging fans to sign up for a future announcement. We also know for a fact that, during November, Big Macca will be performing throughout Japan, wrapping up the tour on Thursday, 21st November at Tokyo Dome.

This leaves him with two options – hightail it back to the UK or make the most of his time in the southern hemisphere by continuing to head south. The waitlist certainly implies the latter option is on the cards.

McCarney’s Out There world tour has been a screaming success so far, with the pop legend popping up just about everywhere, with full band in tow. He recently performed a selection of Beatles hits as well as Sound City Players track Cut Me Some Slack with the remaining members of Nirvana in Seattle, and gig-goers have spoken in glowing terms of the current 3 hour-plus set riddled with time-tested crowd favourites.

McCartney hasn’t played in Australia for more than 20 years, his last visit being on his New World tour in 1993. A scheduled visit in 2002 was cancelled after the Bali bombings. Stand by for an announcement for 2013, we thinks.
