Paul McCartney Farewell Tour
I had a more recent non-tabloid one somewhere, but it's buried in my files.
Many people are eagerly awaiting the next world tour from Paul McCartney. It's said to be his last, as he's old now and has a little girl he wants to see grow up. He's finally free from Heather Mills.
It's been a year since Memory Almost Full, so he needs something new to promote. He can release a second volume of the DVD box set The McCartney Years, as I've discovered many more videos that didn't fit on the first one. He could finally release the Wings concert film Rockshow on DVD. He can release a box set of B-sides, single versions, and more. Also one of previously unreleased material, which can be found on bootlegs (he said he'd release them officially). He should do them all. I suggested it on his MySpace. He's reportedly in the studio again. He doesn't need to release new albums as frequently anymore, though the last two were within a couple years like old times.
As for where he'll go. Likely the same major cities he's always done in the US and one in Canada. Last time, I went to New York. This time, I'd like to go to Toronto again. I'll have to get my passport (don't you read the papers?). I'll have things to sign (I'll be happy if just one is blessed).
There should be an official announcement at anytime. Stay tuned! This may be your last chance to see a living legend live.
The tour may not start until after New Year's. Better late than never.
