Paul McCartney to Play Petco Park Sept. 28
It’s been nearly 40 years since San Diegans had the chance to see the former Beatle in San Diego. Petco Park and AEG Live announced today that he would be playing a show at Petco Park on September 28, 2014.
The Out There world tour has confirmed a September 28 stop at Petco Park in San Diego-marking McCartney’s first concert in the city since the Wings Over America tour passed through in 1976. The Out There tour features music from the most beloved catalog in popular music, as Paul performs songs spanning his entire career. The set list will also include material from Paul’s most recent studio album NEW, a global hit upon its release last year.
This will be the first full-venue concert at Petco Park since Madonna played the ballpark in 2008. With the stage located in center field, and tickets ranging in price from $23 to $253.50, capacity for the Paul McCartney show will be just over 42,000.
“We are thrilled to welcome Paul McCartney back to San Diego for the first time in nearly four decades,” said San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer. “Petco Park has served not only as home to the San Diego Padres, but as the backdrop for countless memorable moments for families and visitors to America’s Finest City. Paul McCartney’s upcoming show may be the most memorable yet.”
