Paul McCartney's coming back to Minneapolis to play the Target Center


Double McCartneys for the Twin Cities.

Looks like you won't have to drive 236.6 miles to see a living Beatle in concert this year.

After teasing  a "royal announcement" yesterday, Target Center confirmed this morning that Sir Paul McCartney will make a stop in Minneapolis on his One on One tour on May 4, two days after his previously announced show in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. March 21 via AXS — no tickets will be sold through the Target Center box office. Prices range from $47 to $252.

This will be Sir Paul's second show in Minneapolis after treating Target Field to a stunner in August 2014. That show came on the heels of a Twin Cities snub in 2011.

The announcement for the One on One tour promises an experience that "transcends and elevates the potential of live music," which, if we're being honest, is now the standard for McCartney concerts, as the 73-year-old rock legend has little he hasn't accomplished in his extensive career.

You can expect three-plus hours of Beatles, Wings, and solo standards. But there's no telling who McCartney might bring out to push the evening into once-in-a-lifetime territory. Having proved in 2014 that he can still rock with unbridled youth and exuberance, there's no telling what this go-around will entail.


Fingers crossed we get that Prince appearance everybody's hoping for.

In other stadium-sized news, Metallica announced this morning that they'll be playing U.S. Bank Stadium on August 20 with Avenged Sevenfold.
