Beatles legend Paul McCartney is set to perform at the iconic Lambeau Field during his 2019 Freshen Up Tour. The concert is scheduled for June 8.
“Coming soon: @PaulMcCartney is set to play @LambeauField on Saturday, June 8!” the Green Bay Packers tweeted.
“He has a team that took a tour of Lambeau Field and they saw a tremendous facility and they understand the iconic nature of the facility itself,” said Jason Wright, President of Live Nation.
In 2017, the Packers had held a Billy Joel concert at the stadium and more than 45,000 people attended the show. However, next year the Packers are celebrating their 100th season.
“We’re honored to welcome Paul McCartney to Lambeau Field and we’re excited for Green Bay to host such a celebrated musician and iconic performer for the first time,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “We’re looking forward to fans of multiple generations joining us this summer for this historic show.”
“This is kind of fitting being our 100th season and we are really looking back and celebrating the history of the Packers,” Murphy said. “I think this will be a memorable evening. There aren’t many acts that can fill a stadium this size so it’s going to be major.”
The Freshen Up tour is Paul’s first trek following the release of his album, Egypt Station, released back on September 7 via Capitol Records.
In addition to the Lambeau Field show, McCartney has also added shows at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas on June 14, Petco Park in San Diego on June 22 and Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on July 13 to his tour plans.
