May 29th Declared Paul McCartney Day in the State of Oklahoma
Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has declared May 29, 2013, as Paul McCartney Day in the State of Oklahoma as part of the kickoff to McCartney’s back-to-back performances at the SMG-managed BOK Center May 29 and 30. The concerts are part of the BOK Center’s 5th Anniversary Celebration. McCartney also headlined the BOK Center’s first anniversary concert in 2009.
The Proclamation highlights McCartney’s career as the most successful composer and recording artist of all time for having sold over 100 million albums and 100 million singles. McCartney was also recognized as a true philanthropist promoting international charities related to causes such as animal rights, poverty and music education.
“We worked in conjunction with Governor Fallin to roll out a warm welcome for Sir Paul,” said SMG General Manager John Bolton. “We are incredibly honored to have him back at the BOK Center to help us celebrate our 5th anniversary. We couldn’t have asked for a better way to mark this milestone.”
