Let it Be: Sir Paul to play Missoula

Paul McCartney is one of the two surviving Beatles, along with drummer Ringo Starr.

Beatlemania is coming to Montana this summer, as Paul McCartney brings his Out There tour to Missoula on Aug. 5.

The Beatles bassist will play Washington-Grizzly Stadium at the University of Montana. Tickets go on sale May 9.

The rock legend will turn 72 in June, but that hasn’t stopped him from playing three-hour shows spanning his career and heavy on Beatles hits.

Sir Paul also will perform indoors Aug. 7 in Salt Lake City, giving Jackson Hole fans two options to see him within a five- or six-hour drive.

When it comes to ticket prices, however, McCartney may as well be the Taxman, charging up to $250 for premium seats. Tickets for Missoula start at $49.50, available at griztix.com or by calling 888-MONTANA.

The Big Sky State’s scenic beauty and a good recommendation from Mick Jagger helped lure McCartney to Missoula. The Rolling Stones played the outdoor football stadium, which has a capacity of 25,000, in 2006.

In other music news, the Teton Valley Foundation has released its lineup for Music on Main. The free concert series will feature James McMurtry, Young Dubliners, Paper Bird, The Motet and Elephant Revival, as well as local bands.

Concerts take place on Thursday nights in Victor City Park beginning June 26.
