Paul McCartney is set to play a third show at the new Citi Field stadium in New York in July after his first two gigs sold out within minutes.

The former Beatle has added a July 21 show at the stadium, which is significant in that The Beatles were the first band to play the Mets previous home, Shea Stadium, in 1965.

McCartney was also present for the last-ever gig at Shea Stadium, performing with Billy Joel during his ‘Last Play At Shea’ last summer.

He will play songs from both his first band's back catalogue, his work with Wings as well as solo compositions and those recorded under his alias The Fireman.

Tickets are available now at 507TIXX.com and by phone at 718-507-TIXX.
