Paul McCartney, who may or may not be your favorite Beatle, is coming to Missoula for his Out There tour and tickets go on sale Friday, May 9. The tour launched last year in Brazil and has pretty much gone around the world from South America to Japan through Europe and North America. The 2014 leg will see him hit Washington-Grizzly Stadium on August 5. Apparently his shows have been full-bore, three-hour long mixes of old Beatles tunes, stuff from Wings and newer works. This is McCartney's first show in Missoula and, of course, who knows if he'll ever make it here again.
From the press release: “I first heard of Paul McCartney when I was in the fifth grade watching the Ed Sullivan show. What an honor to have this legend perform in Washington-Grizzly Stadium,” says University of Montana President Royce Engstrom. “It will be the entertainment event of a lifetime! I am proud of our team that worked to make this happen at UM.”
Tickets go on sale Friday, May 9 at 10 a.m. at all Griz Tix locations, by phone at 1-888-MONTANA, and online at www.griztix.com. Prices range from $69.50 to $250.
