The Yankees announced Wednesday that Paul McCartney would play his first show at Yankee Stadium on July 15, with tickets going on sale Monday.
McCartney previously played three shows at Citi Field in its inaugural year of 2009 and at Fenway Park the same year. With The Beatles, he played at Shea Stadium to open a North American tour in 1965.
The Yankees are on the road from July 11-21, so July 15 is pretty much the perfect time for a concert. The grounds crew will several days afterwards to get the field back into shape.
According to the Sun-Times, McCartney is also expected to play Wrigley Field as part of his “On the Run” tour this summer.
