Paul McCartney to play Wrigley Field
Paul McCartney, star of the 2009 video game The Beatles: Rock Band, is set to play Wrigley Field, a place baseball expert Peter Gammond recently dubbed "a dump." Macca brings his "On the Run" tour to the Friendly Confines on July 31, about two months after the Cubs season unofficially ends.
The 68-year-old will bring yellow-submarine-loads of Beatles hits, and still slays live. It is uncertain whether or not "When I'm 64" will be converted to the past tense. This month, the vegetarian reissues two criminally underrated solo albums, McCartney and McCartney II. Yeah, even the most popular songwriter of all time has underrated albums. (Especially Wild Life.) Hopefully that means he'll play "Temporary Secretary." But not likely. With chillwave and smooth '80s pop all the rage, he even dug into the vaults for a suitable unreleased cut, the slick and surfy "Blue Sway." Take that, Ariel Pink.
