Paul McCartney live at Times Union Center, Albany, New York

Paul McCartney resumed his Out There tour with a concert for 13,000 people at the Times Unions Center in Albany, NY, USA.

It was the 39th date of the tour, and the first since a concert in Costa Rica in May.

The Albany show came after McCartney was forced to postpone several concerts due to illness. The singer called off the Japan leg of the tour, a show in South Korea and seven US dates after being struck down with a virus. McCartney spent six days in a Tokyo hospital before recuperating in London.

The Times Union Center saw a new addition to the setlist: On My Way To Work, from 2013's New album.

The show also saw an on-stage marriage proposal. The Rochester, NY couple were invited onto the stage during the second encore, after holding aloft banners which said "He won't marry me 'til he meets you!" and "I have the ring & I'm 64!!"

John Dann sang part of The Beatles' When I'm Sixty-Four to his girlfriend Claudia Rodgers before getting down on one knee and proposing marriage. She accepted to cheers from the crowd.

McCartney's band is Paul 'Wix' Wickens (vocals, keyboards, guitar, percussion, harmonica), Brian Ray (vocals, guitar, bass), Rusty Anderson (vocals, guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (vocals, drums).
