Over the previous two years, Yankee Stadium has hosted some of the biggest names in music, while taking its place as one of the most important venues on the concert circuit. Last year, the legendary Paul McCartney performed two sold-out shows on July 15-16, while Metallica headlined a full day of heavy metal from “The Big 4” on September 14. The Stadium’s first concert was a two-night double-bill of superstars JAY-Z and Eminem, who played on September 13-14, 2010.
In the near future, the Yankees will make additional announcements regarding other major acts that will be performing at Yankee Stadium in 2012. Information will also soon be available about other sporting events that will take place at Yankee Stadium during the summer months.
