Is Paul McCartney going to play an Edmonton show this fall?
An email sent out by Live Nation is promising "a major historical concert event scheduled for Rexall Place."
We'll have to wait until 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 7, for the the official announcement, but for now social media sites are full of buzz - with the majority of guesses leaning toward the former Beatle.

According to Edmonton music blog, gigcity.ca, the case for McCartney is strong. He's never played Edmonton before (as a Beatle or a solo act,) his website has been teasing tour dates with a "stay tuned" message, and he has a new record - "Kisses on the Bottom."
Whatever the outcome, mayor Stephen Mandel will be on hand to announce the mystery performer, reports the Edmonton Journal, so chances are the act is a big one.
