Legendary BEATLE PAUL MCCARTNEY will perform the historic first concerts at CITI FIELD, the new home of the N.Y. METS, on FRIDAY, JULY 17th and SATURDAY, JULY 18th.
"I am really excited about playing CITI FIELD; THE BEATLES were the first to play at SHEA STADIUM and along with BILLY JOEL, I was the last to sing at the old SHEA," MCCARTNEY said. "So to be the first to play this stadium is incredible. I am really looking forward to a buzzing show."
"Every time PAUL MCCARTNEY steps on a stage is a special event because of the timelessness of the music and the enthusiasm and verve that this icon gives to each performance," AEG LIVE Pres./CEO RANDY PHILLIPS said. "Christening CITI FIELD as a venue will give this concert the added weight of the historical significance of THE BEATLES appearance at SHEA STADIUM 44 years ago."
