Paul McCartney Adds Second Yankee Stadium Date


In response to overwhelming popular demand for tickets to Paul McCartney's July 15 Yankee Stadium debut, a second date has been confirmed for Saturday, July 16. 

Tickets for the July 16 show will go on sale 11 a.m. today at the same time as the general on sale for July 15.

McCartney's historic first ever shows at the storied Yankee Stadium will kick off his 2011 On The Run tour, and mark nearly two years to the day since his legendary July 17, 18 & 21, 2009 concerts, immortalized on the Grammy-winning gold-certified Good Evening New York City CD/DVD.

As on his Live 2009 tour and Up and Coming's 2010 run, McCartney will be backed by the combo the LAS VEGAS SUN called "his best band since, well, the Beatles": Paul "Wix" Wickens (keyboards, guitar, percussion, harmonica, backing vocals), Rusty Anderson (guitar, backing vocals), Abe Laboriel Jr. (drums, backing vocals) and Brian Ray (guitar, bass, backing vocals).
