Paul McCartney to perform 1st Nashville show!

Via presser: Paul McCartney, arguably the most commercially successful performer and composer in popular music, will make his first-ever Nashville appearance Monday July 26, 2010, when he brings his Up and Coming 2010 Tour to the Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville. Keeping with his headline-making special concerts, the tour will feature the iconic star and his band in unique venues, places and locations; cities he’s never before played as well as familiar markets he’s not recently visited.

Tickets go on sale Monday, June 7, 10:00 a.m. and will be available at the Bridgestone Arena Box Office and all Kroger locations, by logging on to www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000.

lthough this will be his first concert appearance in Nashville, it is not McCartney’s first visit to Music City. McCartney and his family spent six weeks in Nashville in 1974, a visit – he told the Nashville Banner at the time – to “relax, ride horses and record” his then band, Wings. The McCartney family stayed at a 133 acre Lebanon farm owned by songwriter Curly Putman (“Green, Green Grass of Home”), and it was that farm that inspired the Wings’ hit, “Junior’s Farm.”
