MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Fans were sprinting like rabbits to buy up tickets to Paul McCartney’s forthcoming Target Field concert, and they ended up selling out in less time than it would take Beatles fans to listen to “Revolution 9” three times in a row.
According to representatives from the Minnesota Twins, the concert tickets that went on sale at 10 a.m. Monday morning were sold out in just 20 minutes.
The Twins said that there would potentially be a limited number of seats released by the concert promoter that could go on sale over the next few months for the Aug. 2 concert. Fans should check back at twinsbaseball.com/mccartney.
The concert will be McCartney’s first at Target Field, but hardly his first in the Twin Cities. The Beatles first performed in Minneapolis in 1965. It was the mega-popular band’s only stop in the city.
McCartney has toured through Minneapolis as a solo act or with his band Wings a number of times, including a stop in 2005.
