Welcome to the April issue of
'What's That You're Doing?'
Hello! How was your April? London has been an exciting place to be over the past weeks! Paul (and the country) celebrated the Queen's 90th birthday, he had his own touching take on St. George's Day and he wished a Happy Passover to his fans. On top of that we had two birthday's here at PaulMcCartney.com and the country (and the whole world!) has been celebrating Shakespeare's birthday. Such a festive start to spring!
But if these weren't enough cause for celebration, April also saw the start of Paul's brand new 'One On One' tour, beginning in Fresno then taking in Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver. As you read these lines, Paul is continuing the celebrations in Little Rock, Sioux Falls, and Minneapolis. We've announced few a quite new shows this month too in Argentina, Denmark, Norway, and the USA. If you'd like to check out the curent tour itinerary click HERE!
Over April we've also launched a brand new website feature to highlight some of the 'deeper cuts' on Paul's forthcoming Pure McCartney album. We've titled it 'Sticking Out Of My Back Pocket' (one of our favourite lyrics of Paul's taken from his song 'Ballroom Dancing') and over the coming weeks we'll be featuring tracks from the release that perhaps aren't as well known as others. We launched with 'Bip Bop', and have also covered 'Too Much Rain' and 'Dear Boy'.
We're now counting down the weeks until the release of Paul's Pure McCartney and trust us when we say there will be some cool things on their way in the coming weeks so remember to keep checking PaulMcCartney.com for all the news on the release. The Paul curated career-spanning compilation is out on June 10th. If you'd like to pre-order your copy, you can do so at the links below:
