This will be Macca's first time at AT&T Park, home of San Francisco's Major League Baseball team the Giants. The much-loved ballpark sits right on the waterfront with scenic views of the city skyline, the Bay Bridge and Oakland on the other side. McCartney hasn't played in San Francisco since the Beatles stormed Candlestick Park on August 29, 1966 -- the band's final live concert performance.
McCartney's show at Rio Tinto Stadium will not only be his first in the Salt Lake City area, it will actually be his first show ever in the entire state of Utah. In a statement issued to the press, Dave Checketts, chairman and founder of SCP Worldwide, LLC which co-owns the stadium, said he's excited that the venue will host a "true icon in what is sure to be a history-making performance, allowing fans of every generation from across the region to see and hear music that changed the world."
Three cheers to that. These two new dates are a part of McCartney's 'Up and Coming' 2010 world tour which, so far, has included a triumphant return to the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles as well as stadiums in Arizona and Florida. Tickets for both of these new shows go on sale Monday, May 24. Each performance will be marathons that approach the three-hour mark, filled with deep cuts from McCartney's massive catalog -- including selections from the Beatles, Wings and the Firemen.
