Macca's headed back to the heartland.
Famed former Beatle Paul McCartney announced Friday morning a run of North American tour dates, including a stop in the Quad Cities. The "Let It Be" songwriter plans to play the TaxSlayer Center in Moline, Illinois, on June 11, 2019, a Tuesday night.
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.
McCartney, age 76, last played the Hawkeye state on July 21, 2017, a show at Wells Fargo Arena. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer played a three-hour, 39-song set in front of a sold out audience of 14,900.
