BOSTON -- The legendary Paul McCartney will play at Fenway Park on July 17, the Red Sox announced during Wednesday night's game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

This will be the fourth show at Fenway for Sir Paul, who played twice in 2009 and again on 2013, when he set the largest single concert attendance in the history of Fenway Park.

The show is part of McCartney's One on One tour. Tickets go on sale to the general public on May 5.
