LOUISVILLE, KY – (June 9) - Paul McCartney has confirmed that he will, however reluctantly, heed medical advice to rest up just a bit longer to fully recuperate from the virus that forced the postponement of his recent dates in Japan and Korea.
I’m sorry but it’s going to be a few more weeks before we get rocking in America again. I’m feeling great but taking my docs’ advice to take it easy for just a few more days. Look forward to seeing you all soon.”—Paul McCartney
The Out There world tour will now resume July 5 in Albany, NY, and the June 14-26 shows in Lubbock, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville and Louisville have been rescheduled to October.
Tickets for the June 26th show at KFC Yum! Center will been honored for the new date of Tuesday, October 28th.
The Out There tour, as always, features music from the most beloved catalog in popular music, as Paul performs songs spanning his entire career–as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle. The set list will also include material from Paul’s most recent studio album
NEW, a global hit upon its release last year. The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity; in just three hours some of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music are relived; music which for many has shaped the very soundtrack of their lives. The last decade has seen Paul and his band perform in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow’s Red Square, Buckingham Palace, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people, and even broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul’s band of the last 10+ years–Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums)–the show never disappoints. The tour also uses state of the art technology and production to ensure the entire audience has the best possible experience. With massive screens, lasers, fireworks, unique video content and, of course, the best songs in the world, a Paul McCartney show is so much more than just an ordinary concert. Paul’s shows attract a multi generational audience from different backgrounds all brought together by his music.

McCartney Recovering After Virus Halts Tour
NEW YORK (AP) — Paul McCartney is on the mend after being treated for a virus that led him to cancel his tour in Japan.
McCartney received treatment at a hospital in Tokyo, publicist Perri Cohen said in a statement Thursday.
The former Beatle is expected to make a complete recovery and will be taking time to rest. McCartney cancelled his entire “Out There Japan Tour 2014″ this week because of his illness.
McCartney was also scheduled to perform at a Seoul stadium on May 28. It would have been his first concert in South Korea.
McCartney, who turns 72 next month, “has been extremely moved by all the messages and well wishes he has received from fans all over the world,” the statement said.
The tour is scheduled to resume next month in the United States. McCartney will play a handful of shows starting June 14 in Lubbock, Texas.
AC Entertainment and Production Simple are pleased to announce that ZZ Top will be in Louisville for a performance at Iroquois Amphitheater on Tuesday, July 29. Tickets for this all ages show will go on sale to the general public Friday, May 16, at 10am. Reserved Seated tickets start at $59.50-$74.50. Tickets are available via http://www.IroquoisAmphitheater.com, by phone (877) 987-6487, or in-person at the Iroquois Amphitheater Box Office (8:30 AM – 4:30 PM, M-F.)
Phone, internet & outlet orders subject to convenience fee.
ZZ TOP’s music is always instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful and 100% Texas American in derivation. The band’s support for the blues is unwavering both as interpreters of the music and preservers of its legacy. It was ZZ TOP that celebrated “founding father” Muddy Waters by turning a piece of scrap timber than had fallen from his sharecropper’s shack into a beautiful guitar, dubbed the “Muddywood.” This totem was sent on tour as a fundraising focus for The Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale, Mississippi, site of Robert Johnson’s famed “Crossroads” encounter with the devil. ZZ TOP’s support and link to the blues remains as rock solid as the music they continue to play. They have sold millions of records over the course of their career, have been officially designated as Heroes of The State of Texas, have been referenced in countless cartoons and sitcoms and are true rock icons but, against all odds, they’re really just doing what they’ve always done. They’re real and they’re surreal and they’re ZZ TOP.
Over the past five years, Jack White & Third Man Records have brought to life many ideas that were new to the century-old vinyl format. So when it came time for the creative hive to discuss the vision for the pressing of Jack’s Lazaretto, Third Man were keenly aware of what it would take to produce a piece of wax worthy of the music it would contain… No single innovation would suffice. We needed to go big. We needed to go bold. We needed to press an ULTRA LP:
180 gram vinyl
2 vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels
1 hidden track plays at 78 RPM and 1 plays at 45 RPM, making this a 3-speed record
Side A plays from the outside in
Dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for “Just One Drink” depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song.
Matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record
Both sides end with locked grooves
Vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format
Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record
Absolutely zero compression used during recording, mixing and mastering
Different running order from the CD/digital version
Utilizes some mixes different from those used on CD/digital versions
Watch masterminds Jack White and Ben Blackwell discuss and demonstrate the ULTRA LP features: http://smarturl.it/LazarettoUltraLP
Both the Lazaretto ULTRA LP and the Vault version of the Lazaretto LP contain all ULTRA LP features. Both will also come with an MP3 download card. Pre-orders for the Lazaretto ULTRA LP begin today. Lazaretto will be officially released June 10 on Third Man Records/Columbia.

– New Album, Turn Blue, Out May 13 On Nonesuch Records, Streaming Now On iTunes –
– Duo Will Perform on Saturday Night Live May 10 “Fever” Music Video Premieres –
“…the best, most consistently gripping album the Keys have ever made…Turn Blue is as apocalyptic, in its way, as that Clash epic [London Calling]: loaded with risk, distress and payoff.” – Rolling Stone
The Black Keys will embark on an extensive North American tour this fall. Promoted exclusively by Live Nation, the tour begins Sept. 5 in Columbus and includes a stop in Louisville, KY at KFC Yum! Center on Wednesday, September 10.
Pre-sale tickets will be available beginning Tuesday, May 13 at 10:00 a.m. local time to all fans pre-ordering the album at http://www.theblackkeys.com and to Citi® cardmembers in the U.S. through Citi’s Private Pass® Program (www.citiprivatepass.com).
Tickets go on-sale to the general public starting Friday, May 16 at 10:00 a.m. local time at Livenation.com, Ticketmaster.com, the KFC Yum! Center box office and all Ticketmaster locations. Charge by phone at 1.800.745.3000.
The tour supports the duo’s highly anticipated new album, Turn Blue, which will be released May 13 on Nonesuch Records and is now streaming exclusively on iTunes. In celebration of the release, the band will return to Saturday Night Live for their third musical guest appearance this Saturday, May 10.
Produced by Danger Mouse, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, Turn Blue comprises 11 new tracks, including the first single, “Fever,” which is currently #1 on AAA radio for the fourth straight week and #2 on Alternative radio. Additionally, the album’s title track recently premiered on Carney’s SiriusXM show, Serious Boredom, and can be heard here. Both songs are available as free instant downloads with album preorders at theblackkeys.com/turnblue; the LP, CD or digital version may also be ordered as part of ticket and T-shirt bundles at the band’s site. The songs are also on sale—alone or as free instant downloads with album preorders—on iTunes.
Turn Blue was recorded at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles during the summer of 2013 with additional recording done at the Key Club in Benton Harbor, MI and Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound in Nashville in early 2014. Of the new album, the band says Turn Blue could refer to:
C: Numbness from extreme cold
D: A Cleveland late night TV host from the 1960s named Ghoulardi
E: All of the above
Carney also adds, “We are always trying to push ourselves when we make a record—not repeat our previous work but not abandon it either. On this record, we let the songs breathe and explored moods, textures and sounds. We’re excited for the world to hear Turn Blue.”
This is the eighth full-length album from the duo and follows 2011’s critically and commercially acclaimed El Camino, which is now certified RIAA Platinum. Internationally, El Camino is Gold in Belgium, Spain, Italy and Holland; Platinum in Ireland, France and the U.K.; and double Platinum in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The record also resulted in three awards at the 55th annual Grammy Awards—Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Album. The band now has a total of six Grammy Awards including three in 2010 for their breakout, RIAA Platinum album, Brothers.

May 30th : Billy Goat Strut Review It’s been an unpredictable journey since our founding Billy Goat (Mark Hamilton) took a trip to New Orleans and quickly became intoxicated with the city’s rich musical culture and tradition. He brought us together on a cold and rainy Kentucky autumn day in 2011 and shared his vision of forming an ensemble of all-star players for an old-time project. Our result is a fun and exciting new genre of music that travels a centuries-old path down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, through the bourbon trail, from Derby City to the Chocolate City and back. Ladies and Gentlemen: THIS IS BOURBON Jazz
June 6th : Johnson City’s The Barefoot Movement have been making waves in the folk world since the release of their 2011 debut album Footwork. From the foot-tapping instrumental “Sheepherder” to the emotional ballad “Thunder” and everything in between, these roots music newcomers have assembled quite the collection here, both old songs and new, offering something for everyone.
June 13th : James Wallace and The Naked Light has lately divided his time between Richmond and Nashville, but his most recent album with his band the Naked Light, More Strange News From Another Star, shows that Wallace is a traveler with no fixed place in the musical universe. You can call it Indie Gospel Folk Hop Rock, or you can suspend your expectations and the tendency to aurally fingerprint everything you hear and soak in the diverse soundscape that James Wallace inhabits like a childhood home.
June 20th : Machines Are People Too is a Dream-Pop band formed in Chattanooga,TN in the sweaty summer months of ’09 when Brian began writing vocals over JJ Clark’s well-produced beats. The two began writing together and performing as Machines Are People Too at monthly dance parties with two keyboards, a laptop, and a microphone. After a year of dancing and playing with DJs, the duo was ready to expand their band and overall sound. The band’s eclectic sound and progressive music creates a live show that leaves no toes untapped and will leave you with no other choice but to let go and dance.
June 27th : Appalatin foot-stomping, hip-swinging sounds organically unite Appalachian folk and high-energy Latin music. The name, Appalatin, reflects the unexpected meeting in Louisville, KY of Kentucky-raised musicians and masterful Latin émigrés from Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Guatemala. Their all-acoustic performances of traditional stings of guitar, mandolin, upright bass, and charango, indigenous Andean flutes, hand percussion, harmonica and vocal harmonies have brought joy and happiness to listeners of all ages.

PAUL McCARTNEY GETS BACK TO CANDLESTICK PARK & DODGER STADIUM
“OUT THERE” 2014 CALIFORNIA DATES CONFIRMED:
August 10 – Los Angeles, CA – Dodger Stadium
August 14 – San Francisco, CA – Candlestick Park
Following an incredible 2013 which saw Paul McCartney’s Out There tour launch in Brazil and visit 23 cities across South America, Europe, North America and Japan, Paul has now confirmed two more very special shows on the 2014 U.S. Out There tour.
Currently tearing through Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Costa Rica, with Paul’s return to Japan and debut in Korea set for next month, the Out There 2014 world tour is now confirmed to visit the same pair of U.S. cities where The Beatles played their two very last shows:
* Putting the rumor mill to rest, Paul has confirmed that he will indeed return to San Francisco August 14 to play Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert. This once in a lifetime occasion is sure to be doubly bittersweet as Paul closes the same iconic venue where The Beatles played their final concert date on August 29, 1966. Of Paul’s most recent visit to San Francisco, headlining last year’s Outside Lands festival, the SF Weekly gushed “one of pop music’s original supernovas… let us bask in its incredible warmth for the best part of three hours… the question of whether or not it was a ‘good’ show almost doesn’t apply – Paul McCartney… was good in a way that no other show could be.”
* A few days earlier on August 10, Paul will play Dodger Stadium for the first time since The Beatles’ penultimate live gig on August 28, 1966. The show will be Paul’s first L.A. engagement since the 2010 two-night stand at the Hollywood Bowl of which the Los Angeles Times raved “It’s hard to think of much in the pop music world more impressive than a 67-year-old musician holding forth for nearly three hours, outdoors on a chilly March night, while delivering some three dozen songs, the least of which would be a career highlight for almost any other artist.”
The Out There tour, as always, features music from the most beloved catalog in popular music, as Paul performs songs spanning his entire career — as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle. The set list will also include material from Paul’s most recent studio album NEW, a global hit upon its release last year.
The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity; in just three hours some of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music are relived; music which for many has shaped the very soundtrack of their lives. The last decade has seen Paul and his band perform in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow’s Red Square, Buckingham Palace, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people, and even broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul’s band of the last 10+ years-Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) — the show never disappoints.
The tour also uses state of the art technology and production to ensure the entire audience has the best possible experience. With massive screens, lasers, fireworks, unique video content and, of course, the best songs in the world, a Paul McCartney show is so much more than just an ordinary concert. Paul’s shows attract a multi generational audience from different backgrounds all brought together by his music.
2014 got off to an incredible start for Paul as he set a personal career best by winning an incredible five GRAMMY Awards in one night. In the UK he was honored by music bible NME with a special one off award, the “Songwriter’s Songwriter Award” chosen for this unique accolade by his fellow peers.
Tickets for the newly announced dates will be on sale Monday, May 5 at 10am local time.
American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Thursday, May 1 at 10am through Sunday, May 4 at 10pm.
