Paul McCartney And Eric Clapton Coming To Tenerife?
Former Beatle Paul McCartney could be headed for Tenerife (off the west coast of Africa) to perform in early December.
Sun Live Festival Canaries, the company which brought Elton John to Tenerife in January, are behind the bid to bring one of the biggest names in popular music to the island.
The company say there are still a few contractual issues to be ironed out but say they are confident the concert will go ahead on December 6.
Like the Elton John concert back in January, which attracted some 20,000 fans, McCartney will perform at the Costa Adeje golf course
The concert will be one of just three in a mini-tour during which, the legendary singer-songwriter will announce his retirement from touring.
Buoyed by the relative success of the Elton John concert, the company have also announced plans to bring Eric Clapton to the island in April of next year, boosting the island's music credentials still further.
