Paul McCartney to Release Album

Published: 2005-05-11
Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney is releasing a new solo disc this September to coincide with a massive tour of the U.S. McCartney was to use a backing band in the studio but decided instead to play all the instruments himself. Long time Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich produced the album.

The Lexus-sponsored tour will kick off September 16th, with entertainment marketing giant AEG producing half the shows. Ticket prices will likely run as high US$250. Reports this week say the first 16 dates have already sold out.

McCartney's last tour in 2002 netted $103.3 million, making it the biggest tour of that year. The concert industry has struggled lately, causing many established acts to cancel dates and reduce ticket prices. Things are set to improve this year with the likes of the Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, U2, Coldplay and Green Day all touring.

McCartney has promised to include more Beatles songs on this tour.

The ticket's are actually $395.00 and up.
If all of the Beatles were there then I might pay that much.
MCCartney has not put out a really good song in some time.
I own the beatles video collection,I can watch the old song's in their original showing, When the excitement and the times were better.
I will never think of him as ("SIR"),Because he was just Paul.
I think he has lost sight of that and put too much importance in a name.
That is too bad ,I liked them when they were just being themselves.
Too bad about Ringo not wanting to play together again.
He may feel as I.
Though I cannot speak for another only myself.
