McCartney plans last world tour before retirement

Beatles legend Paul McCartney

The 67-year-old star is planning a series of gigs next year to mark his retirement from the road, Sun online reported.

McCartney is reportedly in negotiations to set up concerts across the globe, including China's famous Tiananmen Square and Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin, Germany, the famous crossing point of the Berlin Wall when the country was divided during the Cold War.

"Paul wants to go out with a bang. He's played countless stadiums over his 50-year career and is on the hunt for the most unusual locations he can find.

"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. He might play the odd benefit gig but other than that he'll be putting his feet up and enjoying retirement, " a source told the publication.

"The tour in 2010 is likely to last well over a year, by which time he will be almost 70," the source added.

McCartney's last global tour was the 2003's 'In The World' tour, after which he toured US and appeared at numerous music festivals, one-off shows and charity events.
