MACCA’S HIGHLAND FLING!

The rock legend's Celtic Park gig is being hailed as the country's biggest ever...

Paul McCartney

is to play his first gig in Scotland for 13 years, in what is being billed as the country’s biggest ever concert.

The star is to play at the 60,000 capacity Celtic Park football ground on May 30, after he insisted that promoters of his world tour include a date north of the border. According to the Glasgow

Evening Times newspaper, it is the only time on the tour that he will play Wings’ 1977 Number One hit ‘Mull Of Kintyre’, in tribute to the West Coast peninsula of Scotland where

he bought a home after seeking refuge there following The Beatles‘ split.

His spokesperson Geoff Baker told the newspaper: “It is at Paul’s insistence that he is playing Scotland. He was offered other venues in Europe, but he told the promoters ‘There is no way

I’m not going to play Scotland on this tour’.”

Ticket details for the gig will be announced later this week.
