First Concert At Citi Field
NY Daily News reports that Paul McCartney will perform the very first show at Citi Field. He played the very first concert at Shea Stadium 44 years ago.
Last fall, McCartney appeared at the final concert held at the now demolished Shea, as a guest star for Billy Joel’s series of shows there.
The proposed new concerts would take place during a break in the Mets’ schedule, between July 12th and 27th.
McCartney, and The Beatles, inaugurated Shea as a sometime concert venue with a historic show on August 15th, 1965. In the years since, some of the top musicians have played there, including The Stones, Bruce Springsteen, The Who and Simon & Garfunkel.
Best choice to inaugurate the new stadium.
