Dallas / Fort Worth (Arlington), TX – July 8, 2009 – AEG Live and Live Nation, in cooperation with Marshall Arts, announced today that Paul McCartney is confirmed to play Cowboys Stadium on Wednesday, August 19th, 2009. This monumental event will be the legendary performer’s first Dallas concert since 2005, and the only Texas performance of his current series of 2009 North American dates.
Tickets for the August 19th concert go on sale Monday, July 20 at 10:00AM and can be purchased at all Ticketmaster outlets, charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000 or online at www.ticketmaster.com.
The Cowboys Stadium show 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.
On the heels of Paul McCartney’s three-date, sold-out run at New York’s Citi Field in July, the August 19th North Texas performance will be among McCartney’s first U.S. appearances since headlining this year’s Coachella festival; as well as the same weekend’s record-breaking, one-off opening of the new Joint in Las Vegas. McCartney’s additional upcoming North American concert dates include two shows at Boston’s Fenway Park along with performances at Atlanta’s Piedmont Park, FedEx Field in Landover, MD and Halifax Commons in Halifax, NS.
Reactions to McCartney’s recent 2.5-hour, sold-out performances at Coachella and The Joint in Las Vegas were unanimously ecstatic from fans and critics alike:

“For almost two and a half hours, he had the attention of what seemed to be the entire multigenerational festival” — THE NEW YORK TIMES
