MINNEAPOLIS — One of the biggest musicians in rock history is coming to Minnesota.

The Minnesota Twins announced Monday that Paul McCartney will play a concert at Target Field on Aug. 2 as part of his "Out There" tour. It marks the third major concert held at the five-year-old ballpark downtown Minneapolis; country star Kenny Chesney headlined both previous shows.

It won’t be the first time Sir Paul has played in a ballpark in Minnesota. As a member of the Beatles, McCartney and the rest of the Fab Four played at Metropolitan Stadium, the original home of the Twins, in 1965. The 71-year-old McCartney has since had a successful solo career and was nominated for two Grammy Awards in 2013.

McCartney’s show at Target Field is one of 11 concerts currently confirmed for his 2014 United States tour. Tickets for the Aug. 2 concert go on sale April 28 at 10 a.m. on twinsbaseball.com.
