Sir Paul to play Comerica Park
DETROIT – Five weeks after his 69th birthday, Sir Paul McCartney will bring his historic 2011 On The Run Tour to Detroit’s Comerica Park on Sunday, July 24.

Following a nearly six-year absence, McCartney will return to Detroit when he played a two-night gig at the Palace of Auburn Hills in October 2005.
 
The July show will mark the eighth time that the beloved Beatles, Wings-founder and solo artist has brought his stellar 47-year music career to metro Detroit, a city that he has had a connection to ever since a fan handed him a Red Wings sticker at Olympia Stadium on May 7, 1976. McCartney affixed the Winged Wheeler sticker to his 1964 Epiphone Texan guitar, which is still used in live performances.

The concert will be the first open-aired stadium that McCartney will play in Detroit. He played Olympia Stadium three times, including twice with the Beatles – in Sept. 1964 and Aug. 1966. He also played the Palace three times and the Pontiac Silverdome once.

Kicking off July 15 and 16 with McCartney’s first ever shows at Yankee Stadium in New York, the On The Run Tour’s start marks nearly two years to the day since McCartney’s legendary three-night appearance (July 17-18 & 21, 2009) at Citi Field, immortalized on the Grammy-winning gold-certified "Good Evening New York City" CD/DVD.

Every one of this summer’s On The Run dates can safely be predicted to feature nearly three hours of the world’s most familiar and beloved music, with hits, deep cuts and surprises spanning McCartney’s unrivaled catalogue of Beatles, Wings, solo and Fireman classics.
 
McCartney’s recently completed Up and Coming Tour played over three dozen shows to more than 1,000,000 fans from its March 2010 start through its June 10, 2011 conclusion at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, drawing arguably the most enthusiastic audiences and critical notices of McCartney’s peerless near-50-year career.

Tickets ($19.50 up to $250) for the upcoming concert in Detroit go on sale Friday, June 17 at 10 a.m. EDT, and may be purchased at OlympiaEntertainment.com, Tickets.com and the Comerica Park box office. To charge tickets by phone, call 866-66-TIGER. For additional information, call 313-471-6611.
