As first tipped here, Paul McCartney will tour North America this fall, beginning Sept. 16 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. The 28-date "US" tour, in support of a new Capitol album, will wrap Nov. 29 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

McCartney last toured North America in 2002, when he was the top touring artist in the world, grossing $126 million from 58 shows, according to Billboard Boxscore.

The 2005 tour will include return visits to Boston's Fleet Center, New York's Madison Square Garden, Chicago's United Center and Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena. For the first time, McCartney will visit markets that include Des Moines, Iowa, and Omaha, Neb. Other cities, such as Miami and Seattle, will celebrate his return after nearly 15 years.

As in 2002, promotion rights will be split fairly equally between Clear Channel Entertainment and AEG Live/Concerts West. Barrie MarshallÕs London-based Marshall Arts Ltd. oversees all of McCartneyÕs touring efforts. Lexus will be the presenting sponsor.

Tickets go on sale April 22.
