McCartney adds date to tour
An extra concert has now been scheduled the day after the regular concert in Cologne, Germany. He will now be playing in Cologne both on the 16th and the 17th of December. Tickets are already on sale.
Information has also been released on the pre-sale for the Paris-Bercy Show. The pre-sale will open tomorrow at 9 o'clock Central European Time, and only available to those who click on the presale link from McCartney's own official website.
Meanwhile, McCartney has released a new song for radio play, it's his composition (I Want To) Come Home. The piano ballad accompanied by strings is also available on YouTube. We've also heard most of "On A Slow Boat To China", a song McCartney performed in New York's Minskoff Theater at the event "Chance and Chemistry: A Centennial Celebration of Frank Loesser" September 26th. It seems someone in the audience managed to record most of it, but missed the beginning of the song. Paul's affection for Frank Loesser's songs goes way back to when Paul's father performed Loesser's songs on the piano at parties in Liverpool in the fifties. We also noted that McCartney picked Loesser's "Inch Worm" for Mary Hopkin to sing on her debut album "Post Card", produced by Paul.
