Paul Gets #OutThere in South Korea!
Paul McCartney Getting Back ‘Out There’
First time in South Korea
‘Paul McCartney Hyundai Card Super Concert 20’
Wednesday 28th May – Seoul, South Korea
Jamsil Sports Complex Main Stadium
Following an incredible 2013 which saw Paul’s critically acclaimed ‘Out There’ tour launch in Brazil and visit 23 cities across South America, Europe, North America and Japan, today Paul confirms he’ll be getting back out there by announcing his first ever concert in South Korea, taking place at Seoul’s Jamsil Sports Complex Main Stadium this May 28th, 2014.
Regular readers of PaulMcCartney.com may remember that last March model/actress/entrepreneur Lily Cole sent Paul a photo of a busker she spotted in London:
The sign reads: "Sir Paul McCartney! Please have a concert in Republic of Korea!! There are millions of fans waiting for you."
Paul noted at the time, "Lily Cole sent me this pic - may lead to a show in Korea. Hope so!"
We can’t say for sure if the two events are related, but we hope that the gentleman on the photo gets to the show in Seoul!
The 'Out There' tour features music from one of the best loved catalogues in popular music. Paul will perform songs that span his entire career - as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle. The set list will also include material from Paul’s most recent studio album NEW, which was a global hit upon its release last year.
The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity; in just three hours some of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music are relived; music which for many has shaped the very soundtrack of their lives. The last decade has seen Paul and his band perform in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow’s Red Square, Buckingham Palace, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people and even into Space! Having played with his band (Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass guitar/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums)) for over ten years now, the show never disappoints.
The tour also uses state of the art technology and production to ensure the entire audience has the best possible experience. With massive screens, lasers, fireworks, unique video content and the best songs in the world a Paul McCartney show is so much more than just an ordinary concert. Paul’s shows attract a multi-generational audience from different backgrounds all brought together by his music.
2014 got off to an incredible start for Paul as he set a personal career best by winning an incredible five GRAMMY Awards in one night. In the UK he was honoured by music bible NME with a special one off award, the ‘Songwriter’s Songwriter Award’ chosen for this unique accolade by his fellow peers.

Estadio De Minas – Brazil
Watching Paul McCartney is one thing, watching him live in our hometown is another. An air of wonder was mixed with disbelief that this was actually happening. He was here and not only did he do what was expected of him, he surpassed it. The lights, the giant screens, the special effects, a collection of classics – all part of the package of the greatest ever-living artist.
O Hoje – Brazil
It seems Paul’s aura infected the city and we must be very proud of the reception we gave him. Parents took children, children took parents, grandchildren brought their grandparents, friends made new friends – it was a gathering worthy of a world Conference for peace. The world statesman left everybody happy – with a smile on his face and eyes bulging with excitement.
La Repubblica – Italy
Going to a Paul McCartney concert is like a visit to the Louvre, you go and admire the exceptional art, the most extraordinary and popular music of the last one hundred years. It should be mandatory for school children and in fact for every human being to go at least once in their life!
Sports Hochi – Japan
Still rocking hard at 71. Paul is in fine voice for 37 songs for two hours and forty-five minutes. The moment the superstar stepped out on stage in his wine red jacket the voltage went through the roof. This was the moment that all of Japan had been waiting for. The audience listened intently to each moment of the concert and there was ringing applause after every song. Bringing the Japanese flag on stage along with the British flag as a symbol of friendship was a nice touch.
Rzeczpospolita – Poland
McCartney was on Olympic form. This show is what the National Stadium was built for. Paul’s first performance in Poland was the musical event of the decade. For nearly three hours he never left the stage and the show cemented the fact that he is simply the best in the world. As Paul was holding our flag and red and white confetti filled the air we were made to feel like we had won the Euro’s, maybe even the Olympics.
ONET.pl – Poland
This was not just another big concert. It was the most important musical event in Poland in recent history. Saying that the icon complied with the expectations would be wrong, he repeatedly exceeded them! The atmosphere of the evening was fantastic, due largely to the enormous positivity and joy McCartney supplied us with in every single minute of his show.
