The legend turns 70
Listen to Paul McCartney Radio only on iHeartRadio
Paul McCartney is celebrating his 70th birthday today. He's not only looking back over the years, he's looking ahead. In addition to recording a new album, McCartney is continuing work on archival releases. Planned for later this year is his 1976 live album, Wings Over America, and Rockshow, a concert film from that tour, which will be released on DVD for the first time. He hopes to have the new album out early next year.
In celebration of Macca's birthday, Paul Weller has recorded a cover of The Beatles' "Birthday" that will be available only today on iTunes in the U.K. and Ireland. All proceeds from the song will go to the War Child charity.
McCartney has canceled his shows in Horsens, Denmark on June 30th and July 1st, and will re-schedule them for when he has more dates instead of doing them as one-offs.
