Paul McCartney’s “Out There” tour to play Nationals Park on July 12

Paul McCartney announced today that he will perform at Nationals Park - home of the Washington Nationals - on Friday, July 12, 2013 as part of the “Out There” World Tour.

Tickets and parking will go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 12 at 10 a.m., online at and by phone at 888.632.6287. The show will be held rain or shine and will be promoted by Live Nation.

“It’s an honor to welcome Sir Paul McCartney to Nationals Park,” said Andrew Feffer, COO of the Washington Nationals. “Although he is no stranger to D.C., we are excited for his return to the Nation’s Capital to showcase his legendary music and put on a one-of-a-kind show for the fans.”

It was nearly 50 years ago when McCartney made his first trip to Washington for the Beatles’ first ever U.S. concert in 1964 at the Washington Coliseum.

Previous concerts held at Nationals Park include sold-out performances by Elton John and Billy Joel in July 2009; Dave Matthews Band featuring Zac Brown Band in July 2010; and Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band on September 14, 2012.

Paul McCartney’s “Out There” tour will feature brand new, never before seen production and, as ever, hours of material from the most beloved catalog in popular music, with Paul performing songs spanning his entire career as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course The Beatles. The “Out There” tour will see Paul and his band travel the world throughout the year, visiting both places of historical significance to Paul and new spots for the very first time.
