Jacksonville will experience its first ever full Paul McCartney headline concert on June 22 at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena – Paul’s only previous performances in Jacksonville being his four-song set at Super Bowl XXXIX in 2005, and the one and only show The Beatles ever played in Florida at the Gator Bowl in 1964.
“This success in drawing a musical legend like Paul McCartney to Jacksonville showcases SMG’s hard work as it continues to bring top acts here – keeping our city in the spotlight,” said Mayor Alvin Brown. “Paul McCartney is a global superstar who performs in world-class cities. Fans will come here from across Florida and Georgia for this concert. We hope they’ll make a full weekend of it, staying at our hotels, eating in our restaurants, shopping at our stores, having a good time and returning home to tell their friends that Jacksonville is a place where great things are happening.”
