Paul McCartney to play Hollywood Bowl

His Up and Coming tour will play Arizona and L.A.

At age 67, Paul McCartney shows no signs of slowing down — the former Beatle has announced the first two stops of his “Up and Coming” 2010 tour.

McCartney will kick things off in Glendale, Arizona at the Arena on March 28, before heading to the Hollywood Bowl on March 30.

McCartney made a flurry of live appearances in 2009 that began with a performance at the Grammy Awards in February, a much buzzed-about headline set at Coachella in April, a five-week Summer Live ’09 tour, an impromptu performance atop the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York, and a string of performances at Gotham’s Citi Field Stadium that were recorded on the multi-disc CD/DVD set, “Good Evening New York City.

According to the release, McCartney and company will combine “unique venues, places and locations” with “cities he’s never played.”

Material will span the catalogs of the Beatles, Wings and Paul’s solo career, including tracks from his latest LP, the 2008 “Electric Arguments” by the Firemen. According to Billboard, the Beatles were the No. 6 best-selling artists in 2009 due to the remastered releases of the Beatles catalog last year.
