While we were eagerly awaiting the announcement of Paul McCartney's proposed UK tour with perhaps a few European dates thrown in, news reached us from Montevideo, Uruguay, that they are about to secure a McCartney concert at Estado Centenario for Easter. According to newspaper El País, sources claim meetings are to be held this morning and during the week Montevideo regarding an upcoming performance by McCartney. The first specific date discussed is April 18. The concert will probably also draw attendance from travelling Argentinians.

This proposed concert may be the first unofficial word about another South American tour for McCartney. There are still no confirmed dates in any country, but Chile, Ecuador, Peru and other places are speculated about in the newspaper. In Uruguay, a McCartney concert will benefit from a new VAT tax excempt which was just passed. McCartney last played in this country in April 2012.
