Sir Paul McCartney: welcome to Piedmont Park on Aug. 15

How can I say no to Paul McCartney?

The Piedmont Park Conservancy has just announced that Sir Paul McCartney will perform for its second “Green Concert” on Saturday, Aug. 15. The former member of the Beatles will be the headline act for the evening.

Two years ago, the Piedmont Park Conservancy held its first Green Concert with the Dave Matthews Band and the Allman Brothers. (I couldn’t say no to that one either).

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Monday, June 29th at 10 a.m through Ticketmaster.

Special friends of the Piedmont Park Conservancy will get a chance to purchase exclusive, pre-sale tickets on Thursday (tomorrow) at 10 am.

The Piedmont Park Conservancy also will be sending out updates on VIP tickets, on the opening act and other concert details.

There was no Green Concert in 2008 because of the drought, which caused several major events to be moved from Piedmont Park, including the Atlanta Dogwood Festival, the Peachtree Road Race, Screen on the Green and the Pride Festival.

It is comforting to know that Piedmont Park is reopening its gates to major festivals, events and concerts for the Atlanta community.

Rock on.
