The tour, coined "Freshen Up," stops a stone's throw from Iowa as McCartney supports "Egyptian Station," his forthcoming studio album. The record, produced by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Foo Fighters), drops Sept. 7.

It's McCartney's 17th solo studio effort, featuring the singles "I Don't Know" and Come on to Me." 

Tickets to the Quad Cities appearance go on sale Sept. 7 at 10 a.m., per the TaxSlayer Center website. Ticket prices were not posted at the time of publication.
