First Fenway Park, now Nationals Park. Paul McCartney—formerly of a band your parents might once have talked about (and no, we’re not talking about Wings)—is coming to Southeast DC for a stop on his Out There tour July 12, his first Washington show since 2009. The Nationals teased the news on their Twitter feed earlier this morning.

Can Paul McCartney, arguably the greatest songwriter of the 20th century, rival the Boss’s almost four-hour-long show last summer in terms of greatness? Can he redeem himself for his less-than-stellar rendition of “Hey Jude” at the London Olympics’ closing ceremony in 2012? We jest, we jest. Tickets for the Fenway Park shows go on sale tomorrow at 10 AM EST via Live Nation’s website—as yet there’s no mention of the Nationals Park show on McCartney’s own site, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for updates.
