Paul McCartney announced on his website Apr. 25 he'll return to Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, for a show Aug. 10. The show will be for the first time he's played the venue since The Beatles’ own live show there on Aug. 28, 1966.

The show will also be his first Los Angeles engagement since the 2010 two-night stand at the Hollywood Bowl. Pre-sale tickets for the new show will go on sale Tuesday, April 29, at 9 a.m. local time.

On Thursday, McCartney announced a show at San Francisco's Candlestick Park on Aug. 14. The stadium, which is the site of the last scheduled Beatles concert, is to be torn down in 2015. The show had been rumored for months and will come almost 48 years to the day of when the Beatles performed there, at what turned out to be their last scheduled show together on Aug. 29, 1966.

"Putting the rumor mill to rest, McCartney has confirmed that he will indeed return to San Francisco August 14 to play a farewell to 'Candlestick: The Final Concert,' a statement said. The website described the Candlestick concert as "doubly bittersweet" because of the Beatles' history at the stadium.

McCartney's "Out There! Tour" plays Lima, Peru tonight, then has scheduled shows in Quito, Ecuador, and San Jose, Costa Rica, before heading to Tokyo, and later to the U.S. The U.S. shows are set to begin June 14 in Lubbock, TX, and include dates in Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, North Dakota, Nebraska, Missouri, Minnesota, California and Utah.
