After Seoul, South Korea on 2 May, McCartney is heading towards Europe. As part of the European leg of the "Out There" tour, the Daily Telegraph reports that three dates in the UK are planned, Birmingham, London and Liverpool. The Saturday May 23 O2 show in London will take place 50 years after he finished writing his classic track "Yesterday".
Paul said: "I'm often never aware of these anniversaries until someone points it out. People always say to me 'hey, did you know it was 30 years since this and 30 years since that', so it's impossible to stay on top of it all. But I never need an excuse to celebrate so it's always nice to hear! "For me it's a happy coincidence that The O2 show falls at this time. It's great that people all over the world reacted so well to the song, it's all you can hope for! It feels like it has taken on a life of its own over the years. "The song still is and always has been an important part of our live show. "It's always very emotional for me to hear crowds singing it so loudly at my concerts and I'm looking forward to singing it along with the audience at the O2 in May."
Paul said: “It’s always great when you get to play in your home country. It’s been a little while since I’ve performed here so we’re planning a few surprises and looking forward to playing some songs we’ve never played here. We’ve taken this tour all over the world but there’s nothing quite like rocking out with your home audience. We’ll see you soon.”


Paul last played Europe in 2013, and that was just Austria, Poland and Italy.

Tickets for the UK dates go on sale on Monday at 10am, probably Saturday or Sunday from Paul McCartney's own web site. The Birmingham concert is Wednesday May 27 at the Barclaycard Arena, and in Liverpool Paul will play at the Echo Arena on Thursday May 28. In June, Paul visits France and Holland before heading over to play at the Firefly festival in Delaware June 18th - his 73d birthday.
McCartney returns to Europe in July, when he will play three concerts in Scandinavia, one of them at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark, then he's off to Norway before finishing the European tour in Stockholm, Sweden - the first country The Beatles toured in outside of Great Britain.

The full European tour:

Saturday May 23rd – The O2, London, Great Britain
Wednesday May 27th – Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham, Great Britain
Thursday May 28th – Echo Arena, Liverpool, Great Britain

Sir Paul McCartney has announced his first UK shows in three years including one gig marking the 50th anniversary of 'Yesterday'.
The former Beatle will play London's O2, Birmingham and Liverpool in May as part of a European tour.
The O2 show will take place 50 years after he finished writing his classic track Yesterday.
The song, which was originally released on the 1965 album Help!, is reported to have come to Sir Paul in a dream and was originally known as Scrambled Eggs before he wrote the final lyrics.
Sir Paul said: "I'm often never aware of these anniversaries until someone points it out. People always say to me 'hey, did you know it was 30 years since this and 30 years since that', so it's impossible to stay on top of it all. But I never need an excuse to celebrate so it's always nice to hear!
"For me it's a happy coincidence that The O2 show falls at this time. It's great that people all over the world reacted so well to the song, it's all you can hope for! It feels like it has taken on a life of its own over the years.
"The song still is and always has been an important part of our live show.
"It's always very emotional for me to hear crowds singing it so loudly at my concerts and I'm looking forward to singing it along with the audience at the O2 in May."
