Paul McCartney is kicking off the North American leg of his "Out There" tour in Orlando.

The massive production, which requires 31 trucks worth of equipment, includes lasers, huge pyrotechnics, and state of the art video displays, according to the website of the former Beatles star.

McCartney performed the show to a sold out crowd of 55,000 people in Brazil earlier this month, performing "Band on the Run," "Hey Jude," "Yesterday" and "Let It Be."

He will perform at Orlando's Amway Center on Saturday and Sunday night. After tickets for a single show proved high demand in April, a second show was added.

A post on Twitter from the Amway Center Saturday around 5 p.m. said people were lined up around the venue's loading dock in hopes of catching a glimpse of McCartney.

At one point during the show, McCartney is raised 20 feet above the stage on a special riser as he performs "Blackbird" and "Here Today" acoustically, according to his website.

Tickets to the Orlando shows ranged in cost from $57.50 to $250.

The concert, which begins at 8 p.m. both nights, is expected to last for three hours.

Other tour dates include Austin, Texas, Tulsa, Oklahoma, Boston, Massachusetts, and Washington, D.C.
