"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," said McCartney in a statement. "So to be the first to play this stadium is incredible. I am really looking forward to a buzzing show."
McCartney made another historic appearance recently, announcing details on the new "The Beatles: Rock Band" game alongside former bandmate Ringo Starr at the E3 Conference. Read more on that here.
