Sir Paul McCartney will be playing at Scotiabank Place in July.
Mayor Jim Watson made the announcement Monday evening at the venue alongside representatives of Live Nation Entertainment and Scotiabank Place.
None of the four Beatles has ever played Ottawa.
Tickets for the July 7 concert will be going on sale this Friday at 10 a.m., and they range in price from $50 to $275.
McCartney's Out There tour also includes dates in the U.S., Brazil, Poland, Italy and Austria.
The tour also so far includes two other Canadian dates: Aug. 12 in Winnipeg and Aug. 14 in Regina.
Out There "will feature brand new, never-before-seen production and hours of material from the most beloved catalogue in popular music, with McCartney performing songs spanning his entire career — as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course The Beatles," according to a media release.
