Today’s Echo has an exclusive interview with Sir Paul McCartney (he couldn’t talk to us ?!) ahead of the performance of his choral work at the Liverpool cathedral tomorrow:
Sir Paul McCartney: Exclusive interview
Apr 30 2008 by Joe Riley, Liverpool Echo
SIR Paul McCartney is returning to Liverpool for what he calls his revenge gig.
He was referring to a concert of his classical music being staged at Liverpool cathedral, where he was rejected as a chorister more than 50 years ago.
Sir Paul gave an exclusive interview to the ECHO about his two Capital of Culture concerts in his home city.
For one he will be in the audience, and for the second on stage.
The former Beatle promised the Anfield stadium concert would be â€œmy tribute to Liverpoolâ€.
But tomorrow he joins a capacity audience in the cathedral for the northern premiere of his choral work Ecce Cor Meum (Behold My Heart), dedicated to first wife Linda.
He said: â€œThere is no better place for me to hold this concert than in Liverpool where Iâ€™ll also get to invite my family.
