Paul McCartney has announced his first live date of 2013 – a June 22nd show at Warsaw, Poland's National Stadium – that marks the beginning of a new tour dubbed "Out There!"

According to the post on his website, McCartney and his band will travel the world throughout 2013, with a focus on visiting places they've never been before. Fittingly, the June 22nd concert is McCartney's first-ever show in Poland.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
