Paul McCartney live in Madrid for radio and newspaper anniversary concert
By:

EX-BEATLE Paul McCartney will perform tracks from his 'Fab Four' days at his first concert in Spain for 12 years.

On June 2, McCartney will be on stage at the Vicente Calderón stadium in Madrid thanks to a joint effort by Spanish national daily newspaper El País and top 40 chart radio station Los 40 Principales, which are celebrating their 40th and 50th anniversaries respectively this year.

The youngest Beatle has not performed live in Spain since his concert on May 30, 2004 at the La Peineta stadium as part of his European tour that year which had started in Gijón in Asturias earlier.

Most of his show this year will involve old Beatle tracks, with a few of his own as a solo artist – and given the popularity of the Beatles in Spain among Spaniards and expats alike, it is expected to be a sell-out.

McCartney actually cut the red tape on Los 40 Principales' new studio on the Gran Vía in Madrid in 1989, according to its directors – and since then it has been known as 'the McCartney studio'.

Tickets will be on sale from 10.00hrs this coming Friday (March 18) via the usual channels – Ticketmaster, El Corte Inglés and Livenation.es.

Paul McCartney's One to one tour will see him perform alongside his band of the last 10 or so years, comprising Paul 'Wix' Wickens on keyboard, Brian Ray on bass guitar, Rusty Anderson on guitar, and Aby Laboriel Junior on drums.

McCartney, 73, wrote the Beatles' tracks Hey Jude, Let it be, Eleanor Rigby, Michelle, Penny Lane and Yesterday, which entered the Guinness Book of Records as the most-covered song in history.
