McCartney's son to play The Cavern

Sir Paul McCartney's son is to follow in his father's footsteps by playing Liverpool's Cavern Club - where the Beatles made their name.

Sir Paul McCartney's son is to follow in his father's footsteps by playing Liverpool's Cavern Club - where the Beatles made their name.

James McCartney - also a musician - has lined up a show at the venue next month, as part of a short series of dates.

The Fab Four were regulars at the Cavern in the early 1960s, performing nearly 300 shows.

James said: "Of course I'm really looking forward to playing at the legendary Cavern venue in Liverpool. It's where so many great music careers began and of course where my dad's band used to play, so it's a special moment."

The 34-year-old has performed on a number of his father's albums and has pursued a musical career in his own right, with low-key releases for his own EPs.

Underground venue The Cavern, with its low vaulted ceilings, became hugely well known for hosting shows by The Beatles. It was also famously where Cilla Black worked in the cloakroom before finding her own musical success.

The original venue closed in 1973, but was revived a few yards away using bricks from the first club. Sir Paul later played the new Cavern in 1999 as he promoted his Run Devil Run album.

James will play the Cavern on April 3, a day after performing at London's Borderline, with a further show at Whelan's in Dublin on April 4.
