Paul McCartney Plans Retirement Tour

Paul McCartney has announced plans for his upcoming tour, which, by the way, will be his last. That’s right! The former Beatle has finally decided he’s ready to retire.

67-year old McCartney is reportedly in negotiations to play massive concerts all over the world, including China's famous Tiananmen Square and Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin, Germany - the famous crossing point of the Berlin Wall when the country was divided during the Cold War.

A source tells The Sun, "Paul wants to go out with a bang. He's played countless stadiums over his 50-year career and is on the hunt for the most unusual locations he can find. He realizes that the older he gets, the less his body will be able to cope with the demands of extended periods on the road.”

“He might play the odd benefit gig - but other than that he'll be putting his feet up and enjoying retirement. The tour in 2010 is likely to last well over a year, by which time he will be almost 70."

Paul’s last big tour was in 2003, and he has since toured the U.S. and appeared at numerous music festivals, one-off shows and charity events.

Well, he’ll definitely be able to look back and know he’s had one of the most successful careers in musical history!
