PHOENIX — Paul McCartney is returning to Phoenix to play a show at Talking Stick Resort Arena for the first time since 2014.

The Freshen Up tour was scheduled for the downtown venue on June 26 at 8 p.m. Tickets for the event go on sale Sept. 17 at 10 a.m.

The show will feature songs from McCartney’s days with the Beatles, Wings and songs from his new studio album, “Egypt Station,” which was released on Friday.

The Rolling Stone had high praise for the new album.

“Macca keeps adding new gems to his songbook, with nothing to prove except he’s the only genius who can do this… And, oh yeah — in his spare time, he happens to still be the greatest live performer on Earth,” The Rolling Stone wrote about McCartney’s new album.

Phoenix was the only city listed on the U.S. leg of the tour located west of the Mississippi River.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer added three new dates to his U.S. tour beginning on May 23 in New Orleans and ending on June 26 in Phoenix.

Last year, the farthest west his North American tour came was to Oklahoma City.

McCartney will celebrate turning 77 on June 18, eight days before the concert in Phoenix.

As part of the celebration of the 10th year of KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Mac and Gaydos, you can win tickets by tuning to 92.3 FM, our app or online at 5:15 p.m. on Sept. 17.
