PHILADELPHIA — While the Phillies are on break for the 2016 Major League Baseball All-Star Game in San Diego, California, on Tuesday, July 12, you can catch legendary Beatle Sir Paul McCartney rock the stage as he brings his "One On One" tour to Citizens Bank Park.

The show will feature hits from The Beatles, Wings and McCartney's solo career. The 73-year-old last performed in Philadelphia at a sold-out show at the Wells Fargo Center on June 21, 2015.
