Paul McCartney will perform in Winnipeg this summer for the first time in over 20 years.

The former Beatle will take the stage at Investors Group Field on Monday, August 12 as part of his “Out There” Tour. Promoters Live Nation officially made the announcement Monday at the stadium alongside officials with True North Sports and Entertainment and the Winnipeg Football Club.

Promoters are billing the show as a “major historical concert event,” which will accompany Taylor Swift’s concert at the stadium this summer.
