Paul McCartney Is Playing A Surprise Show At Pappy And Harriet's Tonight
Die-hard Paul McCartney fans might want to start "coughing" at work right about now, make a well-timed "sick day" exit in the next few minutes, and then head directly east on the 10 freeway all the way to the desert. Yes, that's right, Sir Paul and his band will be playing a last-minute, surprise show tonight at Pappy and Harriet's Pioneertown Palace. The intimate high desert honkytonk, a Joshua Tree-area institution since 1982, has hosted more than a few big-name acts over the years (Thurston Moore, Vampire Weekend, and even Robert Plant, to name a few). McCartney headlined the Desert Trip festival last weekend, and is scheduled to play weekend two as well.
L.A. Weekly reports that news of tonight's show broke earlier this morning via McCartney's official website. Tickets will be sold exclusively at the Pappy and Harriet's box office starting at 6:30 p.m. (i.e. nothing online). Tickets are first come, first served, with a limit of one per person. They're priced at $50 (which is approximately 13% of the cost of even the cheapest Desert Trip pass) and all sales will be cash only.
No lineups will be permitted at the box office before 3 p.m., so you have more than enough time to get there. According to our friends at Google Maps, drive time to Pappy and Harriet's from downtown L.A. is currently clocking in at a mere two hours and fives minutes.
