“We are honored to have one of the world’s most influential artists come back to New Jersey for another spectacular concert at MetLife Stadium,” said Ron VanDeVeen, MetLife Stadium president and CEO, in press release. “To celebrate Sir Paul McCartney’s return to MetLife Stadium, we are extending an unprecedented tribute by painting his name in our end zones. PAUL McCARTNEY will be emblazoned on our field in 20-foot-tall letters.”
According to the press release: “The process to paint the end zones began this morning and will continue throughout the day. Each end zone will have PAUL McCARTNEY in 20-foot-tall white letters against a black background. GOT BACK and JUNE 16 will be on the 50-yard-line and #PAULMcCARTNEYGOTBACK on each sideline. MetLife Stadium will offer three open sessions next week for fans to come in and take their own photos to commemorate this tribute. Sessions are Tuesday, Feb. 22, 12pm-2pm; Wednesday, Feb. 23, 5:30pm – 7:30pm; and Thursday, Feb. 24, time TBD.”
These will be McCartney’s first concerts since 2019.
