Peter Sala, managing director of the Carrier Dome, and Mark Shulman, senior vice president of The Bowery Presents, announced the event on Tuesday in the Carrier Dome.

"This is one of those performers we've been working very hard to bring to the university, to the campus." said Sala. "To me, it's an honor. Paul McCartneys don't come along every day. It's an unbelievable moment to bring him to the Syracuse University campus."
Known worldwide for dozens of iconic hits like "Yesterday" and "Let It Be," the beloved former Beatle went on to launch an impressive solo career, maintaining a constant presence in the British and American charts during the '70s and '80s. 

Paul will perform at the Carrier Dome on Saturday, Sept. 23.

Back in 1993, McCartney was booked to play at the Dome, but cancelled the show, claiming he needed time to get ready for his Fox TV-televised concert. About 20,000 tickets were already sold. The show was postponed indefinitely. This appears to be his return, 24 years later.
"I think you'll see a diverse group of ages here," Sala said. "I think it'll sell out quickly."
McCartney, 74, has played a few times in Upstate New York recently. He performed at Albany's Times Union Center in July 2014 and at Buffalo's First Niagara Center in October 2015.
The Beatle, currently touring in Tokyo this month, has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, both as a member of the Beatles, and as a solo artist. In March, McCartney confirmed to BBC Radio that he's working on a new album.
McCartney will be the second of the Fab Four to perform in Syracuse in the last year. Ringo Starr kicked off the 2016 summer season of the Lakeview Amphitheater last June.
Tickets go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. Typically, McCartney plays three-hour shows.
In 2012, Paul visited Syracuse on his private jet to stop by NEMF.
