UPDATE: Confirmed: Paul McCartney announces two nights at Barclays Center.

McCartney?

We got a press release email with the above picture, and the only text was "Stay tuned for a big announcement tomorrow, 10 am EST." Does this mean Paul McCartney's "Out There" tour is coming to Brooklyn (and most likely Barclays Center)? We'll know for sure Thursday morning.

UPDATE: Confirmed: Paul McCartney announces two nights at Barclays Center.

Most boring live act. Same setlist since the early 90s.

Paul McCartney is a hatchet man for the New World Order...

Old Lennon is rolling in his grave right now.

That silhouette is from behind, which means that if it IS Paul, the guitar is facing the wrong way and whomever made the image is a fool

Based on the fingers, silhouette looks like it is from the front.

Then you sir, have weird thumbs.

Actually hand on the right side looks like its from the back, and hand to the left looks like it's facing the front. Maybe there is a profound metaphor in there somewhere 'OUT THERE'.

Which way is his third leg facing? Wait, let me guess: towards my mouth, right?

Guitar is behind him he is facing forward.

The guitar is facing forward, but the rest of him is behind. The guitar is slung behind, which, if viewed from behind, creates the impression of a forward-facing Paul (which technically it is). But with the silhouette, all becomes equal, front becomes back, et cetera. Now take this approach: The guitar is on the side, Paul is on the front, and behind the guitar we have Paul facing not outwards but forwards. Factor in the time of day, time of sunset, and location, and what we have is a forward-facing Paul with a guitar that in reality is a cardboard shadow. The stage is back-lit, not front-lit. Whereas I am just plain lit.

That's a dong

Well, yes and no. What it basically boils down to is that Paul McCartney's

The Beatles are only relevant to nostalgic plebes and baby boomers. And this ass clown is only 25% of that overrated manure. I didn't expect Barclays Center to become such a magnet of mediocrity so soon.

ISn't Paul more famous for playing BASS? That's a guitar....

June or July Paul will be playing in Poland - i can't wait for this gig! I don't undertand why people name Paul as Cash Cow..this is sad

just be thankful it is not Elton John playing, Paul is a great musician

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 9:52 AM

He actually does change his setlist...maybe not night to night but tour to tour

The Yankee Stadium gigs were the tops. Only complaint was when Billy Joel showed up.

10:13a completely agree

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 11:36 AM

I went the night he didn't show up, so I had a pretty bad ass time. Great gig, but even as a huge Beatles fan, not sure I would see him again. Sort of a one and done. However, if the Fab Faux tribute to George is anything like the one they did for John at RC...then I am all in for that.

Who gives a shit where he's playing.

Stones are WAY better then those Beatles.
The Beatles are soft and happy, the Stones are dangerous.
Your mom approves of the Beatles, but wouldn't let her daughter date a Rolling stone... Enough said.

Who's the moron who said to be grateful Elton John isn't playing?! HE's the great musician. Paul McCartney looks and sounds trite, and although he had plastic surgery, he's quite unattractive. He is so overrated, it's not funny.

Love this relaxing moment, as well as the rest of it.
