The former beatle has announced plans to perform 28 shows, beginning with a concert in Miami, Florida, on 16 September (05), where the rocker hasn't performed for 15 years.

McCartney has also booked shows at New York's Madison Square Garden, Chicago's United Center and Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena before wrapping up the Lexus-sponsored tour in Los Angeles at the end of November (05).
