Macca for Ireland gig
Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney is to Get Back to Ireland — with a massive outdoor show later in 2008.
Sunday, April 13, 2008

By John McGurk

Sunday Life can exclusively reveal that Sir Paul's people have been in negotiations with Irish promoters for an appearance here this autumn.

Nothing has been officially confirmed yet. The concert company that brought the 65-year-old music legend to Ireland last time, Aiken Promotions, was unavailable for comment yesterday.

But Sunday Life understands that dates in Ireland, Liverpool, Glasgow and London have been pencilled in as part of Sir Paul's first tour since his messy public divorce last month from former glamour model Heather Mills.

Earlier this week a source close to McCartney revealed that he was planning a "celebration" world tour this autumn.

And yesterday we learned that Belfast had been earmarked for Sir Paul's return to touring after a five year lay-off.

Our source claimed: "Local promoters were trying to get him to play Stormont this year but the promoters for The Police show got the licence for an outdoor show there.

"Then they were trying to bring him to Galway, but now Galway has fallen through as well.

"But there are still ongoing talks. Absolutely nothing has been finalised and there is no date. But people are still hopeful that McCartney will play in Ireland this summer or autumn."

Sunday Life understands that there have been at least two attempts to lure McCartney to play his first EVER solo show in Ulster since the turn of the millennium.

Back in 2002 there was intense speculation that he would play at Stormont.

And in 2003 rumours abounded that he would include a number of Odyssey Arena shows as part of an indoor venue tour. But that plan was apparently shelved due to the birth of his baby daughter Beatrice.

Sir Paul has only played live in Ireland once in the last 44 years — a Dublin show in May 2003.

Back in the Beatles' early heyday,Sir Paul and bandmates John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr played dates at the King's Hall and the old Ritz cinema in Belfast.

The alleged cities are starting to come out . . . Dear God, PAH-leeeeeze, let him come to Dallas, Texas. I have not been in the best of health and I think that is about the farthest I could travel . . . I could probably make Houston or someplace in Texas if hubby drives me. But Dallas would be the most convenient for this 45-year devoted fan. Yeah I'm a little older than that, but I am still young compared to some of his fans. heh

This is just so exciting! I am only worried about being able to get good tickets, and praying he comes to The States, and which cities. I guess maybe they are leaking one city a week . . . or something like that.

BTW, I haven't been able to find the 'other' new tour concert thread - I saw it once on this forum, but now it is lost to me .... anyone have a link?

I'm from Galway and i really can't imagine why he'd want to play there, there is nowhere suitable at all and barely enough people in the whole city to fill a stadium.

A number of titles come to mind that have new meaning since his new "release" -

Live and Let Die
Letting Go
I've Had Enough
Tug of War
All My Trials
Hope Of Deliverance
and my personal favorite:
Run Devil Run

You can put an song request via Pauls giutarst Brian Ray or Rusty Andersopn, just mail them. I did mail Brian and I did get an answer abck from him, I did asked Brian to say to Paul that Paul must be playing "Listen To What The Man Said'' because this song Paul haven't done in a long time live on stage.

I know a song called Galway Bay: "If you ever go across the sea to Ireland..." Is it about this Galway?
