In his illustrious career, Paul McCartney has earned himself plenty of titles and distinctions: British knighthood; millionaire rock star; 9th best singer of all time; and, perhaps most famously, the Cute Beatle. Now, Macca adds another honor to the trophy case as Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has declared today, August 2nd, as Paul McCartney Day. Somewhere there’s a village in the Arctic Circle planning Ringo Starr Day.

The honor comes as McCartney is set to headline Target Field later this evening, marking only his fourth time playing Minneapolis since 1965 (and the first since 2005). He previously rocked the Metropolitan Stadium in 1965 and the Metrodome in 1993. He was also set to play in 2011 before “scheduling conflicts” prevented the show, but it’s nice to know the gentle folk of Minnesota don’t hold any grudges.

Below, check out the governor’s official proclamation. Then, celebrate this new holiday by binging on a few McCartney classics.
