Bummer news for local Paul McCartney fans (i.e., Nashvillians who know what’s good for them) planning on attending the Beatle’s June 25 sure-to-be-a-life-changer show at Bridgestone Arena. Citing the same mystery virus that recently sidelined the singer, forcing postponements of concerts in Japan and Korea, Macca has postponed six US dates on his Out There Tour, including Nashville. He's rescheduled them for the fall, giving the 71-year-old rock legend time to rest up. The Bridgestone show is now slated for Oct. 16.
“I'm feeling great but taking my docs' advice to take it easy for just a few more days,” McCartney said in a press release. “Look forward to seeing you all soon.”
So, that sucks. But at least it’s not cancelled. And hey, maybe it’ll work out well for those of you who slept on buying tickets, as folks who can’t make the new date will inevitably forfeit good seats. Ugh, just trying to be positive about this, people.
