So Long Shea StadiumEx-Beatle Paul McCartney will be the first performer at the replacement for Shea Stadium, Citi Field, with concerts on July 17th and 18th, and possibly the 21st.
This seems fitting since it was the Beatles who performed the first-ever concert at Shea Stadium on August 15th, 1965.
“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,” Paul McCartney said in a press release. “So, to be the first to play this stadium is incredible. I am really looking forward to a buzzing show.”
Tickets for McCartney’s show go on sale Monday, June 15 at 10:00 A.M. online exclusively at and by phone at 718-507-TIXX.
