FLUSHING, N.Y., June 15, 2009 – Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Paul McCartney added a third concert at Citi Field – the new home of the Mets – Tuesday, July 21. The addition of a third show follows overwhelming demand and unparalleled online sales of his historic July 17 and July 18 concerts with all tickets selling out in just under 5 minutes.
Tickets for the additional show are on sale now online exclusively at www.507TIXX.com and by phone at 718-507-TIXX. All performances will be held rain or shine.
The Citi Field concerts on July 17, July 18 and July 21 will feature classics from McCartney’s extensive catalog, including Beatles, Wings and solo career hits as well as selections from his most recent album Electric Arguments, released under his alias The Fireman.
These inaugural concert events at Citi Field mark the latest in a series of landmark performances that link the beloved Beatle with New York City and the home of the Mets. Beginning with The Beatles’ legendary musical christening of Shea Stadium in 1965, and continuing with McCartney’s special appearance at Billy Joel’s “Last Play at Shea” show that closed the stadium last year, McCartney’s summer shows at Citi Field will once again mark a momentous occasion in the history of New York – and rock n’ roll itself.
