The rumor is true, Paul McCartney will be the first musician to grace the stage at Citi Field, as he was all those years ago at Shea. The Daily News confirms the shows will take place on July 17th and 18th, rain or shine. A press release was sent out earlier today in which he declared, "I am really excited about playing Citi Field—The Beatles were the first to play at Shea Stadium and along with Billy Joel, I was the last to sing at the old Shea. So to be the first to play this stadium is incredible. I am really looking forward to a buzzing show." Fans of Macca better stand by on Monday June 15th, tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. that day, exclusively at and by phone at 718-507-TIXX. Meanwhile, if you think you have what it takes to be the 5th Beatle, get psyched for The Beatles: Rock Band—the trailer even includes the Beatles' Shea concert!
