SPOKANE, Wash — Paul McCartney announced on February 18 that his upcoming U.S. tour will kick off here in the Lilac City, and Spokane fans wasted no time securing their spot to see the former Beatles member perform.
Holly Williams with the Spokane Public Facilities District (PFD) confirmed to KREM 2 that tickets to the show sold out less than 30 minutes after they went on sale on Friday.
McCartney will visit Spokane Arena as part of his 'Paul McCartney Got Back' tour on Thursday, April 28, marking the first time the former Beatle will play in Spokane.
McCartney will also play two shows in Seattle on May 2 and 3. The three tour dates in Washington are more than any other state in the country.
It’s huge news for the city, which will likely see extra visitors and attention as the first stop on McCartney’s tour. A spokesperson for Spokane Arena said, “the concert will be one of the most significant events Spokane has ever seen.”
On its website, Spokane Arena states it can hold between 12,494 to 12,638 fans for concerts, depending on the stage setup.
McCartney has been entertaining fans for more than 60 years with The Beatles, Wings, and as a solo artist.
The concert news comes at a time when Spokane Arena is starting to book more big events including the NCAA Women’s Basketball Regional, Santana, Eric Church and more.
