New York's Citi Field Welcomes Paul McCartney


Fans of Paul McCartney and fans of the Mets are in for a treat as the Beatles alum will be performing at Citi Field in New York City on two back to back dates: Friday, July 17 and Saturday, July 18. The inaugural concert tradition is just one of many performances that tie McCartney to the New York and the previous baseball field, Shea Stadium. McCartney had much to say about the upcoming show, "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, so to be the first to play this stadium is incredible. I am really looking forward to a buzzing show." Fans will be able to purchase tickets online exclusively at or by phone at 718-507-TIXX starting June 15, at 10 a.m. This will be McCartney’s first U.S. appearance since his performance at this year’s Coachella. In the upcoming Citi Field shows, McCartney will be playing old Beatle’s favorites as well as Wings hits and some of his solo tracks. The event should be a historic one and surely, one not to miss!
