Paul McCartney may perform in Peru in second half of May

Lima, Mar. 21 (ANDINA). Negotiations to bring ex-Beatle and music legend Paul McCartney to Peru are going well. Long-awaited show in Lima is expected sometime in the second half of May.

Businessman Jorge Fernandez and partner Jorge Ferrand said there is a strong possibility that Paul McCartney may be performing in Peru, depending on the confirmation of a Latin American tour to Brazil, Chile and Peru.

This morning, twitter and facebook messages delighted Beatles and Macca fans, after Colombian businessman Juan Ospina told Radio Caracol that McCartney is not likely to perform in Colombia.

“Unfortunately, he will not arrive in Colombia, but I just got the scoop that he will be playing at Monumental Stadium in Lima and the National Stadium in Chile. Then, he will perform two shows in Maracana stadium”.

Fernandez and Ferrand are negotiating with South American entrepreneurs to consolidate this long-awaited concert, so that they can cover all transportation costs of technical equipments for the show.

Mexican media reporting Paul McCartney may perform in Juárez

Mexican media is abuzz with the possibility that ex-Beatle Paul McCartney may perform in Juárez .

Several newspapers and websites said McCartney has not confirmed his visit to Juárez . Others say that the pop superstar had indeed confirmed.

McCartney was a member of the Fab 4, along with Ringo Starr, John Lennon, and George Harrison. Together the band turned the world around with their music and were part of the British invasion that took over the U.S. in the mid-60s with their special brand of rock.

At one time, the group had six number one hits, including "I Want to Hold your Hand," "Love Me Do," "Twist and Shout" and "Can't Buy Me Love."

When the Beatles broke up in 1970, McCartney continued in the industry as a solo artist creating hits such as "Maybe I'm Amazed" and "Band on the Run."

According to Mexican media reports, the ex-Beatle known for his ballads may be in Juarez for a concert in October.
