Twins Book McCartney Concert for Target Field

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Almost 50 years after the Beatles made their only Minnesota appearance, Paul McCartney has been booked for another ballpark concert.

The Minnesota Twins announced Monday that McCartney will bring his "Out There" tour to Target Field for a Saturday night show on Aug. 2. Tickets were set to go on sale in coming days.

McCartney will turn 72 this summer. His most recent Twin Cities appearance was in 2005 at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

The only time the Beatles came to the state was in 1965 at Metropolitan Stadium, then the Twins' home. The team moved to the Metrodome in 1982 and into Target Field in 2010.
