Paul McCartney to tour Australia late 2013?

Beatles legend rumoured to bring world tour Down Under...

British pop icon and ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney is thought to be making his first visit to Australia in over 20 years, with rumours of a tour as early as November.

McCartney will be performing throughout Japan at the end of the year – wrapping up on Thursday 21st November at Tokyo Dome – so it would make sense for the musician to then make his way Down Under.

Speculation of the rumoured tour peaked when Ticketek registered an online waitlist for information on a future Paul McCartney announcement.

The ‘Cut Me Some Slack’ singer is currently on his ‘Out There’ world tour, with the living legend performing 3 hour-plus sets of his greatest hits.

McCartney, 71, has also treated gig-goers to a handful of Beatles songs that had never been performed live, with his set list including ‘Your Mother Should Know,’ 'Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite,’ and ‘All Together Now.’

The singer made his last visit to Australia during his 'New World' tour in 1993.
