Paul McCartney is performing in Des Moines on Friday, as part of his “One on One” summer tour.
So it’s only fitting that July 21, 2017, is declared “Paul McCartney Day” in Polk County.
Polk County Auditor Jamie Fitzgerald tweeted a photo of the proclamation at the Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday morning. Friday will be McCartney’s third performance in Iowa. He first performed in 1990 at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames and again in 2005 at Wells Fargo Arena.
“Paul McCartney’s an absolute icon,” Chris Connolly, Iowa Events Center general manager, said told the Register back in April, when the news of McCartney’s return was announed. To bring him back again in 2017 … who knows how many more opportunities we’ll have to get him back here to Wells Fargo Arena.”
