First, the bad news: Paul McCartney is pushing back the start of his upcoming "One On One" tour, which was scheduled to begin July 5 in Miami.
Now the good news: It shouldn't affect his July 10 concert in Tampa.
McCartney announced Wednesday that he was moving his tour-opening concert at Miami's AmericanAirlines Arena from July 5 to July 7 "to accomodate enhancements for the tour's production." It's unclear what difference those two extra days will make, but an official announcement says the enhancements will be "exciting," so we'll see.
If you had tickets to McCartney's Miami show, those will still be honored at the July 7 date. Those unable to attend will be refunded at their original point of purchase. Click here for details.
The real bummer here, especially if you live in South Florida, is that McCartney moving his show to July 7 means he's now going head-to-head with Metallica, who play Hard Rock Stadium that same night. McCartney or Metallica? How do you choose?
