ENTERTAINMENT: Paul McCartney returns to Winnipeg

Legendary musician and former member of The Beatles  Paul McCartney returns to  Winnipeg after  five years.

The 76-year-old music legend  announced on Tuesday that he will play Bell MTS place on Sept. 28.

This will be McCartney’s first tour following the release of his new album Egypt Station, which comes out Sept. 7.

Tickets for the Winnipeg show will become available on July 13 at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster and on is website.

The other Canadian stops on the Freshen Up tour are Quebec City on Sept.17; Montreal on Sept. 20; and Edmonton on Sept. 30.

The last time he was in Winnipeg, in August 2013, McCartney played a sold-out show at Investors Group Field. Just before the concert began, then-Mayor Sam Katz presented McCartney with the Key to the City.

Dozens of fans who couldn’t get tickets to that show listened from outside the stadium, setting up lawn chairs and blankets on the grass.

McCartney also played in Winnipeg in 1993. That show, at the old Winnipeg Stadium, was also a sell out.
