The show will go on.
Although Baltimore’s weather forecast has scattered thunderstorms arriving shortly before legendary artist Paul McCartney’s eagerly anticipated concert, the performance will continue “rain or shine,” event organizers said.
The former Beatle is playing in Baltimore for the first time since 1964 when the group held its first North American tour. McCartney’s Sunday show, the penultimate performance of his solo “Got Back” tour that began in April, starts at 8 p.m at the Baltimore Orioles’ Camden Yards. His concert will not follow the Birds’ afternoon game against the Kansas City Royals. Instead, the concert marks the stadium’s second standalone production since Billy Joel performed in 2019.
However, there’s a 60% chance of rain showers and possibly a thunderstorm after 5 p.m., when temperatures are expected to drop from a high of 81 to a low of 68, according to the National Weather Service. Another round of rain showers could pass through between 8 p.m., when McCartney plans to take the stage, and 1 a.m.
Guests should remember to bring rain jackets because umbrellas are not allowed inside the stadium.
