Paul McCartney Announces Tour, Becomes Google Sensation

Did you know the British press calls Paul McCartney "Macca?" Well, now you do. But that's not news. What's making headlines today is that the former Beatle has announced his first European tour in more than 5 years.

Excitement over the rocker's announcement landed McCartney, 67, at the top of today's Google Trends report. On his website, McCartney wrote, "Starting in Hamburg, ending in London and rocking everywhere in between. I'm very much looking forward to ending the year on high."

The 'Good Evening Europe Tour' will hit 7 cities in the month of December, according to the Associated Press. McCartney, 67, plans to release a live album from the U.S. tour, 'Good Evening New York City.'

There`s no time for McCartney to stop anything musical. If you count "In Spite Of All The Danger/That`ll Be The Day" recording from 1958, then McCartney has recorded music in the 50`s, 60`s, 70`s, 80`s, 90`s and 00`s ... so far. And next year it`s the 10`s. So, the only decades missing then, is the 20`s, 30`s and 40`s. Yepp. Stay healthy and keep up the good work. : )
