Paul McCartney appears set for San Diego encore show

SAN DIEGO — Paul McCartney appears set to return to San Diego for his first concert here since his rousing Petco Park show in 2014, according to a reliable source — McCartney himself.

On Thursday, the veteran solo star, Beatles co-founder and two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee wrote on his Facebook page: “San Diego! We’ve heard rumours that Paul is bringing his #FreshenUpTour to town in 2019…Get your tour laminate album bundle here! Each laminate comes with a code that could allow access to pre-sales.”

Of course, it’s more than possible McCartney, 74, has a staff member who is assigned to regularly tend to his social media posts for him. But it is more than unlikely McCartney or his management would not have known about — or approved — the San Diego “rumours” post.

McCartney’s 2019 U.S. tour is currently scheduled to kick off May 23 in New Orleans. The closest date to San Diego announced thus far is June 26 in Phoenix. The tour is in support of his new album, “Egypt Station.”
