Sir Paul McCartney planning huge world tour

Dates for the former Beatle's jaunt are being finalised now

Sir Paul McCartney is in the process of planning a huge world tour for this autumn, taking in gigs in the UK, the USA, Canada and Australia.

Representatives for McCartney have been meeting concert promoters around the world this month to iron out the details of the tour, on which he is set to debut selections from an album’s worth of new songs he has written.

According to the Daily Mirror, McCartney‘s tour director flew to Nova Scotia in Canada recently to meet with promoter Harold MacKay.

The duo discussed a possible date at the 50,000 capacity Halifax Common venue, where The Rolling Stones performed in 2006.

The world tour dates are set to be finalised in May.
