Paul McCartney at Citi Field

Former Beatles member Paul McCartney is going to do a show at Citi Field.

McCartney played Shea Stadium, the then home of the Mets, with The Beatles in 1965 and closed the venue when he performed with Billy Joel in 2008. The new shows will mark Macca’s historic run of shows in New York.

“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,” said Paul McCartney. “So to be the first to play this stadium is incredible. I am really looking forward to a buzzing show.”

The concerts will take place on July 17 and 18, 2009 and include music from The Beatles, Wings, his solo years and his side-project The Fireman.

Tickets will go on sale from 10am on Monday, June 15 from
