Paul McCartney To Perform First Two Concerts Ever At Citi Field

In 1965, The Beatles played the first ever show at Shea Stadium.

In 2008, Paul McCartney played at Billy Joel's show for the last ever concert at Shea Stadium.

Now, in 2009, Paul will be playing the first ever shows at Citi Field, the new home to the Mets.

The shows will be on Friday, July 17 and Saturday, July 18...rain or shine!

"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."

Tickets go on sale Monday, June 15 at 10:00 A.M. ET online exclusively at and by phone at 718-507-TIXX.

If its anything like McCartney's set at Coachella then these could be THE shows of the year.
