Paul McCartney has promised Southern Californians he will perform a much-longer set at Dodger Stadium Sunday night than the last time he played there.

In a recorded video announcement played during recent Dodgers games, McCartney vowed to play longer than the half-hour L.A. concert on Aug. 28, 1966.

That night, a crowd estimated at 45,000, paying $4.50 for tickets on the top deck and $6 for loge and field level tickets, turned out for what would prove to be the Beatles’ second-to-last concert. The half-hour set included “She’s a Woman,” “If I Needed Someone” and “Rock ‘n’ Roll Music.”

The Beatles completed their 14-city North American tour the following night in San Francisco’s Candlestick Park before about 25,000 people. Their last concert was an unannounced performance in 1969 on the roof of the London headquarters of Apple Corps Ltd.

Sunday’s concert is expected to run for three hours, with the 72-year-old McCartney performing songs spanning his entire career — as a Beatle, a solo artist and a member of Wings.

Tickets were priced from $25 to $250 and sold out the day they went on sale on May 5.

The concert will be McCartney’s first in Los Angeles since a two-night stand at the Hollywood Bowl in 2010.

The concert will begin at 8 p.m., with the parking lot to open at 5 p.m. and stadium gates at 6 p.m.

Concert-goers are advised to purchase parking in advance on the Dodgers website, Dodgers.com, as it may not be available Sunday.

Dodger Stadium Express shuttle bus service from Union Station will begin running at 5 p.m. Return service from Dodger Stadium will continue until 45 minutes after the conclusion of the concert.

Parking is available at Union Station for $6.
