The Outside Lands Festival announced Tuesday that Paul McCartney will play at this year’s event, which runs from Aug. 9 through 11 at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.
The show has been rumored for a month since a local paper first reported the possibility on March 20. The date the former Beatle would be performing was not yet available.
Also among those performing at the festival is Paul’s son James McCartney, plus Willie Nelson and Family, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails, Hall & Oates, Gary Clark Jr. and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Three day advance, general admission and VIP tickets, plus parking and shuttle passes go on sale at noon PT here on April 18 or here.
Paul McCartney last played San Francisco on July 10, 2010 at AT&T Park, the home of the San Francisco Giants. He was also a performer at Neil Young’s Bridge School benefit in 2004.
One of his shows with Wings at the Cow Palace in nearby Daly City in 1975 is being included in deluxe version of the new “Wings Over America” reissue.
