From Penn Live, July 21, 2016:
Paul McCartney performed for the first time in Hershey, and it was a trip through decades of music history.
He played 39 songs Tuesday night to a packed Hersheypark Stadium. Fans from as far away as West Virginia and New York came for the performance, which included songs from his time with The Beatles and Wings.

Later on in the night, McCartney invited two fans onto the stage. After a little back and forth with them, he gave them both his autograph. One even asked for two on her upper and forearm.
