McCartney said in a release from the team: “I said at the end of the last tour that I’d see you next time. I said I was going to get back to you. Well, I got back!”
The stadium show would be the first time McCartney played Baltimore since 1964, when the Beatles performed two sets at Royal Farms Arena, then known as the Civic Center.

The Orioles are preparing to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, but the stadium’s first major concert didn’t happen until July 2019, when singer-songwriter Billy Joel headlined.
In December 2020, McCartney released his 18th solo album, “McCartney III.” Like with albums 1970’s “McCartney” and 1980’s “McCartney II,” the legendary rocker recorded almost every instrument on the record at his home.
He later released a companion record, “McCartney III Imagined,” including remixes of the album’s songs by the likes of Beck, St. Vincent, Blood Orange, Anderson .Paak and Phoebe Bridgers.MORE NEWS: Ex-Baltimore Fiscal Chief Pleads Not Guilty To Fraud, Identity Theft Charges
