Paul McCartney, a former member of the Beatles, arrived in South Korea Friday to hundreds of fans eager to see the rock ‘n’ roll icon. The 72-year-old is here for “Out There,” a world tour that kicked off in 2013. Clad in a blue shirt and black blazer, the “Hey Jude” singer waved to delirious fans at the gate. His flight was delayed by an hour much to the anxiety of his fans who had been waiting hours beforehand.
Without saying much, however, the musician was whisked away by guards immediately to a car waiting outside. Interestingly, the crowd at Gimpo International Airport was mostly Japanese. Hioki Yuya, a Japanese tourist, said he had come to South Korea just to watch McCartney’s concert.
The 35-year-old had been waiting for the musician since arriving at the same airport this morning. “I wasn’t able to watch his concert in Japan due to work,” he said, still carrying his luggage. “I saw him two years ago, but I came to South Korea to see him again.” McCartney is reportedly staying at a hotel in the posh Gangnam district in southern Seoul. His concert will take place at nearby Jamsil Stadium starting at 8 p.m. Saturday.
