Paul McCartney’s “One on One” tour continues after a couple of months off the road. The new part of the tour started in Miami, Florida on Ringo’s birthday, which prompted Paul to dedicate “Birthday” to both Ringo and Paul’s late dad, James.

In an interview prior to the show, Paul had promised two-three surprises, and these were probably “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” (Paul had sergeant stripes on his jacket, see photo), “I Wanna Be Your Man” (usually a Ringo song) and possibly “Love Me Do”?

Time off in November, well so far no dates announced. Finally it’s time for a belated visit to New Zealand and Australia – countries not visited by Paul since the “New World Tour” back in 1993. A couple of concerts planned for Melbourne fourteen years ago were cancelled, so it’s about time he made up for this. The Australian dates sold well, so a couple of extra dates were added after the first shows sold out very quickly.

6: Melbourne, Australia – AAMI Park

    I think the new album will come in November.
    This way he doesn't pull away from the excitement of Ringo's LP in September.
    And he can rehearse new songs ahead of the next wave of shows.

    Besides, August may be family time, since no one will be in school.
