Paul McCartney in NJ: Performing at MetLife Stadium this summer
For the first time since 2019, Sir Paul McCartney is embarking on a U.S. tour. The tour will begin April 28 in Spokane, Washington, before slowly making its way eastward.
The final destination for McCartney will be the one and only MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ on June 16. With a career that began way back in 1957, McCartney knows to save the best for last. This will be the former Beatle's first time performing at MetLife Stadium since 2016.
According to Rolling Stone, tickets will go on sale on Feb. 25 at 10 am local time. A presale for American Express cardholders will run from Feb. 22 at 10 am local time through Feb. 24 at 10 pm local time.
McCartney, who will turn 80 years old two days after the MetLife Stadium concert made the announcement this morning, adding, “I said at the end of the last tour that I’d see you next time. I said I was going to get back to you. Well, I got back!”
With that, the tour will be called the "Got Back Tour."
Perhaps the most in-demand living legend is still following through on his promises all these years later.
