WILKES-BARRE — Beatles fans will be able to hear all their favorites when The McCartney Years comes to the F.M. Center for the Performing Arts on Oct. 6.

Will Beekman, Kirby Center executive director, announced Tuesday that FriendlyHart Productions will present The McCartney Years — a tribute to the music of Paul McCartney — at the F.M. Kirby Center on Saturday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Aug. 10 at 10 a.m. and will be available at The Sundance Vacations Box Office at the Kirby Center, or online at, or charge by phone at 570-826-1100. A Kirby Member pre-sale begins Wednesday, Aug. 8 at 10 a.m.

Ticket prices are: $29.50, $39.50 and $49.50, plus fees.

Hailed by the original Beatles promoter as “the best on the scene,” The McCartney Years is a period-true, technically stunning and explosive live concert show that performs the music of Paul McCartney spanning two decades from The Beatles to Wings.

Songs include hits like Hey Jude, Jet, Let It Be, Band On The Run, The Long And Winding Road, Live And Let Die, Lady Madonna and many more, plus some of the deep cuts that McCartney wrote during the 1960’s and 1970’s — all performed to their original arrangements by a band that has entertained audiences worldwide and even has a personal accolade from former Wings guitarist Denny Laine.

Beekman guaranteed that you will “jump out of your seat to clap, sing and dance to the music by one of the most prolific artists of all time in this authentic, timeless live concert experience.”
