TORONTO - Paul McCartney has announced two Canadian summer stops on his upcoming tour.

The 67-year-old rocker will play August dates in Montreal and Toronto as part of his tour, which kicks off July 15 in Denver.

He'll play the Air Canada Centre on Aug. 8 and the Bell Centre on Aug. 12.

His last Canadian performance was back in July 2009, when he played in Halifax.

McCartney's last record of new material as a solo artist was 2007's "Memory Almost Full," which was certified gold in Canada.

The rocker became the first non-American to win the Library of Congress' Gershwin Prize for Popular Song on Wednesday.
