Paul McCartney is coming back to San Diego! A stop at Petco Park has been added to his 2019 Freshen Up tour. It will be his 2nd visit to San Diego since 1976!
The former Beatle’s concert will be Saturday, June 22, 2019. Paul McCartney’s seven decades of rock experience will be on full display. Expect a nearly 3 hour set of stories mixed with an encyclopedic set of 35-40 hits from his Beatles and Wings days.
Tickets are scheduled to go on sale Thursday December 13, 2018, at 10am.
We have no presale codes at this time. Note: a significant convenience fee, added to the cost of each ticket, is revenue shared by the Padres, promoters, ticket partner and credit card company. This money does not go to the artist or performers.

FAQWill food concessions be open?
Yes. Most regular Petco Park concessions will be open and you will have plenty of opportunities to fill your belly and quench your thirst.
Can I bring cameras?
No video equipment, no GoPros. Yes you can bring your regular small camera. Yes you can bring your phone. No you cannot ruin the concert for the person behind you by holding up your phone and recording the whole show.
How early can I get there?
Petco Park gates open at 6.
Who is the opening act?
Opening Act, if there is one, and set times will be posted as soon as that information is available. Set times will be known once the June date gets closer. Paul McCartney and his band are expected to perform for nearly three hours!
What about parking?
Advance parking permits cost $25. But there are tens of thousands of spaces nearby. Because it is a Saturday it might be a bit more crowded than usual, and we recommend reserving a spot in advance.
