SIR PAUL McCARTNEY is to play a Christmas show at the O2 this year, his first big live gig in London for six years.
The O2 appearance is the last leg of a magical history tour for McCartney, 67, as he retraces some of the steps taken by the Beatles nearly 50 years ago.
The first stop is on 2 December in Hamburg, the city in which the Beatles practised their early rock ‘n’ roll routine, and then McCartney heads for Berlin, Arnhem, Paris, Cologne and Dublin before the O2 celebration, the tour’s only UK date.
“This is my chance to bring our current show home to where it all began; starting in Hamburg, ending in London and rocking everywhere in between,” said Macca.
“I’m looking forward to ending the year on a high.”
Sir Paul McCartney’s O2 concert, part of the officially titled Good Evening Europe tour, is on 22 December. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Monday 26 October 26.
