Paul McCartney on Tuesday announced a new leg of concerts across the US, showing no signs of slowing down as he prepares to turn 75 in June.

The former Beatle's new tour dates were unveiled with a promotional event held outside Madison Square Garden, where a troupe dressed as Britain's Beefeater royal guards appeared on a tour bus.

The rock legend will play four major arenas in the New York area in September including his first concert at Madison Square Garden in Midtown Manhattan since 2005.

The musician will also perform at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island and the Prudential Center over in Newark, New Jersey.

He announced 14 shows in total starting in Miami on July 5 in the latest leg of his "One on One" tour.

McCartney is playing this week in Tokyo and performed for 150,000 people over two weekends in October at Desert Trip, a new festival of rock elders in California.

McCartney recently revealed that he is recording a new album with producer Greg Kurstin, best known for co-writing Adele's mega-hit "Hello."

Despite his energy, he last year told Rolling Stone magazine that it would be "unimaginable - and unseemly" to keep performing at 80.
