MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Legendary rocker Paul McCartney is reportedly coming to Target Field — but not to watch the Twins.

According to songkick.com, the Beatles frontman will headline a concert at the ballpark on Sept. 1. However, Minnesota Twins spokesman Kevin Smith said they have no confirmation that McCartney will be playing at Target Field.

He said they “entertained the notion of having him there” but have not heard anything definitive.

McCartney is also reportedly playing at several other major ballparks, including Yankee Stadium and Wrigley Field.

Ticket information has not been released, as of yet.

    Reviews of his most recent show were phenomenal. Getting better with age to say the least. IMHO the most talented Beatle. Lennon’s songs told us to be happy, love one another…McCartney’s songs just made us happy in spite of everything. He never had to tell us to feel good. The songs just did that.

    Yoko criticized his ‘silly’ songs and simplistic lyrics. The world disagrees.

    Very well said, Tom

    All four were great writers, musicians and people. I think George might have been the most talented, however. Just my opinion.

      Textbook example of the whole being greater than the sum of it’s parts. Frank Sinatra called ‘Something’ the greatest love song ever written. High praise indeed for George. He certainly had to live in a shadow.
