Paul McCartney 'to retire from long and winding road'
An unnamed source told the Sun that the former Beatle is currently looking at staging big gigs in countries such as China and Brazil over the next year.
The insider suggested that these dates could form part of an extensive world tour which would herald his retirement from full-tilt gigging.
"He realises that the older he gets, the less his body will be able to cope with the demands of extended periods on the road," the source continued.
However, the insider added that Sir Paul is not ruling out the option of playing occasional live shows after the tour ends, as he would be prepared to appear at "the odd benefit gig".
This comes shortly after a member of Sir Paul's touring band praised the music legend's versatility.Posted on 31 Jul 2009 12:05 to category : Band / Celebrity News
