The Long and Winding Road to The Friendly Confines
Sir Paul McCartney is making his way back to the Windy City with his “On The Run Tour”. He will be performing at Wrigley Field Sunday, July 31st. The option of adding a second show on Monday, August 1st is plausible if the the first show sells out. Paul still has a undeniable ability of remaining relevant through music as both a Beatle and a solo artist….count on a second show for sure!
The last time he played at a Chicago baseball stadium was when the British Invasion found its way to Comiskey Park in 1965, where he performed with George, John, and Ringo. He will now be added to the group of other great performers (Jimmy Buffett, The Police, Dave Matthews Band, Rascal Flatts, Elton John, Billy Joel) that have performed at Wrigley Field, and will surely provide a memorable experience for his fans.
The show is rumored to be about three hours long and filled with hits from his discography with the Beatles, Wings, and as a solo artist. There is no doubt that the night will be perfectly paced, filled with a relentlessly energetic night of classics. Sir Paul will not have to ask, “Will you still love me when I’m 64?” The fans will prove to him that he is still loved at 69 and always will be.
