Paul McCartney has announced a new Minneapolis date at Target Field, according to sources. The August show fits within the Beatles founder's Out There U.S. tour, which is hitting arenas and stadiums around the country this summer.

After Target Field has hosted country superstar Kenny Chesney a few times and the Skyline Music Festival on the third base line, this will be the first full-scale rock show at the venue. A McCartney concert almost happened three years ago, but organizers eventually pulled the plug citing "Scheduling challenges for Sir Paul."

@Truth_Teller_1  Then don't. Many will - and I'd rather pay for this that to see that sorry ass baseball team on the field. (And the sorry ass team next door as well.)

@MNjoe @Truth_Teller_1 And I hate paying taxes for $500,000,000 ball parks, and $1,000,000,000 football stadiums.

There's a law about a referendum about spending over $10,000,000 in Mpls - but TPTB found a way around that.

I guess it's legal.   Does this compare any differently than the letter Cooper wrote?

@Truth_Teller_1  And I hate paying taxes to fund your Republican wars. Suck it up asshole.
