The former Beatle will be bringing his "Freshen Up" tour to the Big Easy next year.

Paul McCartney released his 18th solo record Egypt Station earlier this month. With that comes the "Freshen Up" tour. That will be hitting the Smoothie King Center on May 23, 2019.

Tickets for that show will go on sale Monday, September 17th at 10am.

McCartney last played New Orleans in 2014 while on tour in support of his previous effort NEW.

With that announcement, hopes that McCartney might be booked for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival's 50th anniversary may be all but done.
