Paul McCartney has announced plans for a 2013 tour, entitled Out There!.

The former member of The Beatles has only revealed two dates so far – at the National Stadium in Warsaw, Poland on June 22 and the Happel Stadium in Vienna, Austria on June 27 – but has said that more dates will be announced shortly.

A statement posted on PaulMcCartney.com reads:

The tour will see Paul and his band travel the world throughout the year, even visiting some places they've never been before. Further announcements and dates will be added in the coming weeks so stay tuned to PaulMcCartney.com for updates and ticketing details.


The website also states that McCartney is currently working on a new studio album, to follow last year's covers record, 'Kisses On The Bottom'.

McCartney will headline the Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, Tennessee this summer, alongside Mumford and Sons and Tom Petty.

Meanwhile Paul McCartney & Wings will release a live version of 'Maybe I'm Amazed' – originally released in 1976 as a radio promo single – on 12-inch vinyl for Record Store Day on April 20.

Paul McCartney was reportedly ignored when he began performing Beatles songs on a train in North America recently as passengers thought he was a busker.

The star was travelling with his wife Nancy Shevell in a New Orleans street car when he reportedly "burst into a medley of some of The Beatles' biggest hits". Unfortunately, rather than enjoy a rare opportunity to see McCartney up close and personal, his fellow passengers ignored him.
