Paul McCartney to Play Intimate BBC Gig
Paul McCartney has yet to announce a full-scale tour in support of his forthcoming new album New (and it is quite possible no such announcement is even in the cards). However, it has been revealed that Sir Paul will celebrate the release of New with an intimate free show at the BBC’s Maida Vale studios in London on October 16, one day after his sixteenth solo studio albumofficially hits the streets.
The show will air on BBC6 during the week-long 6 Music Live campaign, which will be hosted by Laura Laverne and feature performances by Polica, Goldfrapp, Manic Street Preachers and Sigur Ros. The shows will begin airing on October 14 and run through October 18.
"You can imagine how excited we are about this," Laverne said of her McCartney booking. "There is nobody bigger and nobody better. What a tiny intimate place to see Paul McCartney playing live. And he's always brilliant live, of course--he's Paul McCartney.”
Tickets are free, but there are very few of them available and you have to enter a lottery for a chance to win a pair. Feeling lucky? Head over here to throw your name into the hat. Registration will be open until September 27.
