Paul McCartney to play Fenway Park?

, Staff

We just enjoyed three nights of music at Fenway Park and it looks like the wait for more concerts at the famed ballpark will not be long. Paul McCartney is all set to play Fenway Park on Wednesday, August 5 and Thursday, August 6. Neither the representatives from the Red Sox, McCartney, or promoters Live Nation have confirmed the rumors but a public hearing for licensing has been scheduled for Monday, June 22 at City Hall.

Yesterday, the former Beatle announced that he would perform the first concerts at Citi Field, the new home of the New York Mets, on Friday, July 17 and Saturday, July 18. Of course, the Beatles performed a historic show at the team’s old home, Shea Stadium, in 1965. The band performed before a crowd of 55,000 fans, marking the first time in history that a sports stadium was used for a rock concert. Last year, McCartney returned to the stadium to make a special appearance at Billy Joel’s "Last Play at Shea" show that closed the stadium.

Earlier this year, McCartney headlined the Coachella Festival in Indio, California.
