Paul McCartney today announced a summer concert swing through the United States with a stop at Fenway Park in Boston on June 7. The show is his first at Fenway since 2016 and will be his fifth show at the historic ballpark.

The tour comes on the heels of the enormously successful Disney+ series “Get Back,” a documentary that chronicles the making of the Beatles Let it Be album. The former Beatle turns 80 on June 18.
