Paul McCartney is coming back to Detroit, playing Sunday, Oct. 1 at Little Caesar’s Arena.
Tom Wilson of Olympia Entertainment made it official Tuesday morning live on WWJ, saying this will be a rare sighting of the former Beatle.
“The days of him, and many artists, doing 30, 40 city tours are over,” Wilson said. “So Paul will play six or eight or 10 cities around on the country on this latest go-round. And we’re honored to be one of them.”
Little Caesars had been teasing a major concert announcement for days. They said on social media that metro Detroit would be “amazed.”
And then the arena pushed out billboards overnight with announcements of the concert, apparently letting the cat out of the bag accidentally.
