Macca up! Paul McCartney at Safeco Friday

It seems appropriate that the opening song of the first official concert in Safeco Field history will most likely be a Beatles song — that is, if Paul McCartney repeats the same set list he’s done in other cities. Though Safeco has hosted a number of postgame concerts (and the Beach Boys played a Microsoft event at the park), McCartney’s “Out There” tour stop is Safeco’s first full-on show.

That’s something to celebrate, but so is the fact that in other cities McCartney has played for two hours, and is doing more Beatles material than previous tours. And just so you won’t have to look it up on the Internet, most likely it will be “Eight Days a Week” that rocks the Safe for the first time. (Ed. note: According to The Washington Post, McCartney has also been playing four other Beatles songs the Fab Four never played live: “Lovely Rita,” “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite,” “Your Mother Should Know” and “All Together Now.”)

8 p.m. Friday at Safeco Field, Seattle; $39.50-$253 (800-745-3000 or ticketmaster.com).
