GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The Greensboro Coliseum announced on Tuesday Sir Paul McCartney will perform in Greensboro for the first time ever on October 30 as part of his "Out There" Tour.

The Coliseum teased the "historic" announcement in a news release on Monday.

Tickets will go on sale to the public Monday, June 30. Pre sales will begin on Thursday, June 26.

“This major event will be one of the largest events in the 55-year history of the Greensboro Coliseum complex,” the coliseum stated in a news release yesterday.

A senior vice president with AEG Live and Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan also attended the event.

McCartney recently postponed his U.S. tour due to a virus. The tour postponement will find him resuming his U.S. tour in early July and playing his June U.S. dates in October.

"He will make a complete recovery and has been ordered to take a few days rest," the statement said. "Paul has been extremely moved by all the messages and well wishes he has received from fans all over the world."

Ringo Starr told the Rolling Stone McCartney is now doing much better and is "getting ready to rock."

Phish, Backstreet Boys, Jimmy Buffett, Bon Jovi and Billy Joel/Elton John are the five most-attended concerts in the history of the Greensboro Coliseum.
