The performance would be in Las Vegas...

PAUL McCARTNEY has been offered a reported $4 million for just one show in the US.

The former Beatle has been offered the staggering fee to appear at the Las Vegas MGM Grand Hotel, according to this morning’s Sunday Times newspaper (February 17).

It is thought that the city is looking to find a high profile event to replace the Mike Tyson / Lennox Lewis boxing match that was due to take place in April, but was refused a licence earlier in the month.

A spokesperson for the hotel would not confirm the offer, but did reveal that talks were in place. He said: “McCartney would be a great event for us. We have not signed him yet but talks are continuing and we hope to make an announcement soon.”
