Paul McCartney is planning to quit touring. The former Beatle will bow out by playing a massive worldwide farewell tour next year. A source claims that Macca doesn't want to carry on touring into his old age - he's 67 at present - though "he might play the odd benefit gig if the likes of President Obama gives him a bell".
Sir Paul McCartney is set to issue live CD/DVD packages of his gigs at New York's Citi Field venue that took place in July earlier this year, on November 23.
The standard release of 'Good Evening New York City' will feature two CDs and a DVD. A deluxe edition will feature an additional DVD featuring McCartney's performance at the Ed Sullivan Theater. The live album will also be issued on vinyl.
The gigs, at which McCartney played songs by The Beatles and Wings, as well as selections from his solo back catalogue, took place on July 17, 18 and 21.
They were significant for McCartney as The Beatles played the venue in 1965 when it was known as Shea Stadium.
"It was three great nights for the band and for me personally," he said. "It was very exciting to be back opening a new stadium on the site of the old Shea Stadium where we had played 44 years previously.”
Referring to the fans' screaming back in the '60s, McCartney said the gigs were “even more exciting because this time round you could hear us!"

Und wenn ich lese, dass sich manche Leute wieder Metallica, Hosen und Linkin Park wünschen, ist das wohl auch besser so.
The first of McCartney's UK and Ireland shows will see him play the Dublin RDS on June 12. He will then headline the Isle Of Wight event on June 13 before heading to Glasgow's Hampden Park on June 20.
From there he will play Cardiff Millennium Stadium on June 26, then headline Hard Rock Calling on June 27.
Macca am Ring wäre ungefähr so wie Slayer aufm Haldern, wenngleich Slayer dort wohl besser angenommen werden würde...
Also ich hoffe mal das er doch mal in denn nächtsen Jahren dabei wäre oder auf irgend nem anderen festival in der nähe. Würde ihn mal sehr gerne sehen aber die solo tickets sind wirklich ein bissle zu teuer
