Never one to rest contentedly on his laurels, Paul McCartney is going to spend much of the summer on the road: He's playing gigs across the country, including a headlining spot at Bonnaroo. The latest stop on his Out There tour is—unsurprisingly—the Barclays Center. The former Beatle and Wings frontman will play at the Brooklyn venue on June 8 and 10, and tickets for the gigs go on sale Monday, April 22 at 10am. (We'll spare you a cheesy "yeah, yeah, yeah!" joke. Oh, wait.)
We saw Macca when he played Yankee Stadium in 2011, and trust us—the man still puts on a great show. As with that performance, fans at these gigs can probably expect a few hours' worth of material—the press release promises tunes from McCartney's time in the Beatles and Wings, as well as some solo songs. (No word on whether Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic will reprise the trio's collaborative effort for these shows.) This is also a huge get for Barclays, whose concert lineup is solidly star-studded, less than a year after opening.
