Paul McCartney to perform at Petco Park

SAN DIEGO — Paul McCartney will bring his “Out There” world tour to Petco Park Sept. 28 — the first time the Beatles legend has played San Diego since 1976.

“We are thrilled to welcome Paul McCartney back to San Diego for the first time in nearly four decades,” San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said. “Petco Park has served not only as home to the San Diego Padres, but as the backdrop for countless memorable moments for families and visitors to America’s Finest City. Paul McCartney’s upcoming show may be the most memorable yet.”

Tickets range from $23 to $253.50 and will be on sale to the general public July 18 at 10 a.m.

PaulMcCartneyAmerican Express card members can buy tickets July 14 at 10 a.m. Padres season ticket members can buy tickets July 17 at 10 a.m.

Tickets also will be available at padres.com/PaulMcCartney and all Ticketmaster locations. Suites and hospitality spaces will be available for purchase by phone at (619) 795-5060 or by email at suites@padres.com.

McCartney, 72, will perform songs spanning his entire career — including as a solo artist and member of Wings. The set list will include material from Paul’s most recent studio album “NEW.”

The former “Cute Beatle” will appear with his band of the past decade, including keyboardist Paul “Wix” Wickens,  guitarist/bassist Brian Ray, guitarist Rusty Anderson and drummer Abe Laboriel Jr.

This will be the first full-venue concert at Petco Park since Madonna played the ballpark on Nov. 4, 2008. With the stage in center field, capacity for McCartney show will be a little more than 42,000.

McCartney resumed his tour Saturday in Albany, New York, after more than two months being out with illness.
