Paul McCartney gets back to Utah — August 7 at EnergySolutions Arena

Paul McCartney — who, amazingly enough, can still be considered "The Cute One" at the age of 71 — is coming back to Utah.

Sir Paul will bring his band to EnergySolutions Arena, Salt Lake City, on Thursday, August 7.

The former Beatle is playing around the world as part of his "Out There" tour — kicking off a new leg next week in Uruguay, with stops in Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Costa Rica, and then heading to Japan and his first shows in Korea.

McCartney made his debut in 2010 at Rio Tinto Stadium, on his "Up and Coming" tour, which was his 200th show with his current touring band: Keyboardist Paul "Wix" Wickens, bassist/guitarist Brian Ray, guitarist Rusty Anderson and drummer Ab Laboriel Jr.

McCartney's set list features songs from his latest studio album, "New," as well as songs from his solo career, and his work with Wings and The Beatles.

Tickets, ranging from $29.50 to $252, go on sale Friday, April 25, at 10 a.m. at Smith's Tix.
