The Twins' upper management tried to attract McCartney to Target Field in 2011 but scheduling difficulties prevented that. Shows in 2012 and 2013 featured Kenny Chesney with Tim McGraw ('12) and Zac Brown Band ('13). Both shows were sellouts and learning experiences for the grounds crew when it comes to staging a major concert at the (relatively) new ball park. Now comes the ultimate challenge as the effervescent Paul McCartney comes to town. McCartney will attract a large audience with a wide age range for his hit-filled show that has already been a smash everywhere he's been.

McCartney played in Minneapolis in 1965 with an early band of his of some acclaim. He returned to the St. Paul Civic Center in 1976 with his Wings Over America tour. In 1993, he brought his Off the Ground tour to the Metrodome and he was back in 2005 with Chaos and Creation in the Backyard. Nearly nine years later, his Out There tour will feature some of the songs he played with the Beatles in '65. Out There seems ironically appropriate since the Metrodome is now down and being rebuilt and Paul is playing the park built to replace it.
