Sir Paul McCartney 'To Quit Touring'

Sir Paul McCartney 'To Quit Touring'

Sir Paul McCartney is to end his touring career following a farewell concert tour next year, it's been reported.

The former Beatle is said to be planning a series of spectacular shows which will take him to locations he hasn't previously performed.

According to The Sun newspaper, possible gig spots include Berlin's Checkpoint Charlie and Tiananmen Square in China.

A source said: "Paul wants to go out with a bang.

"He's played countless stadiums over his 50-year career and is on the hunt for the most unusual locations he can find.

"He realises that the older he gets, the less his body will be able to cope with the demands of extended periods on the road."

The farewell tour will last "well over a year" - taking the former Beatle up to his 70th birthday, the newspaper claimed.

That article doesn't know what it's talking about. McCartney was born on June 18th, 1942, making him currently 67.

Also, I read an interview with him somewhere recently where he said he wasn't retiring.

I thought the same thing when reading that, B-F. A better choice may have been the word "flourish."

I wish him the best. He has filled many hours, minds and hearts through his musical imagery. If the love he takes with him in the end is equal to the love he has made, he will retire in fine shape.
