Paul McCartney’s European summer tour cancelled

Paul McCartney's European summer tour cancelled

Jim Dyson/Getty ImagesThe European leg of Paul McCartney’s Freshen Up tour was set to kick off May 23, but as you can probably surmise, it ain’t happening. 

In fact, the entire thing has been canceled, rather than postponed.  “Given current and future work commitments it has not been possible to find alternative dates,” a statement on Paul’s website says.

“We were looking forward to seeing you all this summer for what we know would have been much fun,” the former Beatle says in a message to fans.  “The band and I are so sorry we can’t be with you, but these are unprecedented times and the well-being and safety of everyone is the priority.  I hope you are all keeping well as we look forward to the brighter times ahead.  We will rock again. Love Paul.”

The tour was to have begun in Lille, France and wrap up June 27 at the Glastonbury Festival, which was canceled weeks ago.  Fans should check with their point of purchase for ticket refunds.
