Paul McCartney will open his 2011 On the Run Tour in dramatic fashion. The 68-year-old rock hero has officially announced that he will be performing at Yankee Stadium on July 15th. McCartney will return to Gotham more than four decades after Paul and bandmates John, George, and Ringo set Shea Stadium aflame with Beatlemania.
Macca paid tribute to The Beatles' 1965 concert two years ago, performing over the course of three nights at the home of the New York Mets, Citi Field. McCartney is now set to strum his Höfner bass guitar this summer in the Bronx's billion dollar ballpark. The man that gave the world songs like "Blackbird" and "Maybe I'm Amazed" will be performing this weekend in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand, but has no other dates scheduled currently outside of the show in the Big Apple. While NYC music lovers are hunting for Paul McCartney Yankee Stadium tickets, fans in Chicago have their fingers crossed Paul will soon be announcing a show at Wrigley Field. Rumors are swirling around the Windy City with news that a Wrigley Field concert of some kind is in the works for July 31st and August 1st. While no reports have yet to surface confirming McCartney's show in Chicago, the famed performer is likely to add more US On the Run Tour dates this year to his schedule.
