Paul McCartney is both making news and adding his voice to breaking news this week.

Macca has announced another crop of dates to his Out There Tour, with a pair of stops at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn — and not his usual home at Madison Square Garden. Tickets for those concerts go up April 22 at 10 a.m. local time. Many of his previously announced shows are already sold out, though a few like in Memphis, Tulsa and Milwaukee can still be bought.

All dates for the Out The Tour are below.

Additionally, McCartney has joined in on the Voices Against Violence campaign. The anti-gun violence and regulation non-profit serves voters wishing to call their state senators in voicing their concerns. Users who text “MYVOICE” to 877877 will enter their zip codes, get a pre-recorded message from McCartney or other celebrity contributors and them be connected to their state Senate office.

Alec Baldwin, Josh Groban, Mia Farrow, Gloria Estefan, KD Lang and others have also recorded a message for program participants to hear. This comes during a week of intense debates and tough votes in the Senate on gun regulation.
