SEATTLE (AP) - Paul McCartney will perform the first public concert at Safeco Field on July 19.
The former Beatles bassist will play the home of the Seattle Mariners as part of his "Out There" tour, Live Nation announced on Monday. McCartney already has announced dates for Boston's Fenway Park and Nationals Ballpark in Washington. The Beach Boys played a private concert at Safeco Field in 2008. McCartney's show will be the first public concert, according to the Mariners.
Aside from baseball, the stadium has hosted a college football bowl game, World Cup soccer qualifying and WWE's WrestleMania.
Tickets will go on sale Friday. The stadium is expected to hold more than 40,000 for the show.
