KCBD NewsChannel 11 has learned that legendary singer, songwriter, Paul McCartney is scheduled to headline a concert in Lubbock on Saturday, June 14.

Details of the event are expected to be announced in a joint news conference between Texas Tech and the City of Lubbock Wednesday morning at the Buddy Holly Center.

McCartney, who will turn 72 this year, gained worldwide fame as a member of The Beatles. He has long credited Lubbock native Buddy Holly as one of his biggest musical influences.
