Paul McCartney to return to Fenway
Paul McCartney is expected to make a return to Fenway Park, a little more than three years after his last concert set a local record.
The former Beatle is set to return to Yawkey Way on July 17 with his new “One on One” tour, which will be his fourth at the venue. The show will be played as a part of the Plainridge Park Casino Fenway Concert Series.
In 2013, McCartney set a record for the largest single concert attendance in Fenway history, according to Live Nation. One report put that figure at more than 36,000 concert-goers on July 9, 2013. This was after he set a two-day concert box office record for his performances in 2009.
According to a press release, the show will employ a re-designed set, but will feature many mainstays of McCartney performances, including lasers, pyrotechnics, and his band of over a decade.
Tickets for the Boston gig go on sale on May 6 at 10 a.m.
If you miss your chance to see McCartney, there will be other chances to get your classic rock jam on at Fenway this summer. The park is also hosting a James Taylor concert on Aug. 3 and Billy Joel on Aug. 18.
