Beatles nostalgists, rejoice! Paul McCartney will play Dodger Stadium August 10.It’ll be the first time McCartney plays at Dodger Stadium since The Beatles’ pentultimate gig there Aug. 28, 1966. McCartney played a two-night stand at the Hollywood Bowl in 2010 and shut down Hollywood Boulevard to play “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last September.

Four days later, McCartney will play at S.F.'s Candlestick Park for Farewell to Candelstick: The Final Concert. The August 14 show should be bittersweet for fans—not only is it one of the last shows at the stadium before it closes for good, Candlestick Park is where The Beatles played their last show on Aug. 29, 1966. McCartney headlined last year’s Outside Lands fest in S.F.

The new dates are part of his “Out There” tour, which sees McCartney playing hits from across his career, from The Beatles to Wings to his solo albums. His most recent album, the critically acclaimed New, was released last year.

Tickets go on sale May 5 at 10 a.m. A presale for American Express card holders starts May 1 at 10 a.m. and runs through May 4 at 10 a.m. You can register for presale tickets here.
