Paul McCartney schedules D.C. stadium show

06.19.09 9 years ago

The new Mets stadium won’t be the only field Paul McCartney graces this year. The former Beatle will be performing a concert at the Washington Redskins’ FedExField on Aug. 1.

The Beatles played their very first show on American soil in Washington, D.C.; the stadium sits right outside the U.S. capitol, marking a historic return for McCartney.

Tickets for this rain-or-shine one-off go on sale on June 26 at 10 a.m. EST.

If this concert is anything like his other performances this year, fans can expect a 2+ hour show, with songs from The Beatles catalogue, McCartney’s solo career and his stint with Wings. McCartney’s latest release, “Electric Arguments,” released under his alias The Fireman last year.
