What motivates Paul McCartney to do anything anymore? His musical legacy is more than secure: Even with a spotty 40-year solo career, his artistic and cultural achievements with The Beatles long ago secured him a spot in the history books. He’s also richer than pretty much anybody who ever made a living in music, as well as universally beloved. But McCartney still feels the need to create songs and play them live, and he’s still doing it with a frequency that belies his age.
After a brief bout of speculation (including reports from the Journal Sentinel and noted fifth Beatle Mark Belling), it has been confirmed that McCartney will play Miller Park July 16. The show will be his first in Milwaukee since 2005. According to OnMilwaukee.com, tickets range in price from $39.50 (the Uecker seats, we’re guessing) to $255, and go on sale Friday, April 19 at 10 a.m. at the Miller Park box office. Tickets can be also be purchased online at Brewers.com/McCartney or livenation.com. Shazam!
