Despite apology, McCartney's tour continues


Paul McCartney's "On The Run" tour continues, with (so far) four dates in North America having been announced for November. Outrageous! Paul McCartney was due to play two nights in Horsens, Denmark in late June, but the concerts were cancelled after people from all over Europe (it was his only European concert this summer) had bought tickets, arranged transportation and accomodation. The reason given for cancellation was that McCartney was developing a fresh new show, and needed time to rehearse this. So he gave Horsens a raincheck. And here's that fresh new show: It's just the same old "On The Run" tour again. At least he should have had the decency to call it something else!
Remember the tour before this? It was called the "Up And Coming" tour. It started in Phoenix on the 28th of March 2010 and ended in Las Vegas on June 10th, 2011. July 15th, a little more than a month later, the "On The Run" tour started in New York City.
Let's hope the raincheck he has given Horsens is more valid than the one he gave the people of Melbourne who had tickets for his cancelled November 23d 2002 gig. He hasn't been back yet....

Paul wanted to come and see me in St. Louis. He must have been seeing things I have been posting all over the Internet about how he NEVER comes to St. Louis and I NEVER get to see him in concert. :)
