Paul McCartney to cap two-year tour with US festival

25th February 2015, Comments 0 comments

Paul McCartney will headline the Firefly Music Festival in the United States in June in what could be the finale to the ex-Beatle's two-year tour.

Firefly, which takes place in the woods of Delaware, has rapidly grown since 2012 as it seeks to give the US East Coast a version of a major global festival.

The festival announced Wednesday that McCartney would headline its June 18-21 edition, during which the music legend will turn 73.

Unless McCartney adds additional dates, the concert would be the last of his "Out There" tour, which he opened in May 2013 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

He extended the tour to include four more dates in Japan in April, followed by a May concert in South Korea.

McCartney -- who in 2013 played Bonnaroo in Tennessee, one of the leading US festivals -- has performed a range of Beatles classics as well as newer songs on the tour.

Firefly will also feature fellow British icon Morrissey, hip-hop titan Snoop Dogg and alternative rocker The Killers.
