Mccartney To Be Honoured At The White House
The details of Sir Paul McCartney's big White House showdown have been revealed a week after the former Beatles star hinted about a presidential concert in a webchat.
The Jonas Brothers, Faith Hill, Stevie Wonder and Jerry Seinfeld will be part of an all-star line-up that will honour MCCartney when he receives the third Gershwin Prize for Popular Song from the Library of Congress in the White House's East Room.
Jack White, Dave Grohl, Emmylou Harris and Elvis Costello will also be part of the festivities on 2 June (10))
Paul Simon and Wonder are past Gershwin Prize winners.
MCCartney treated fans to a 30-minute webchat on Thursday (20May10), during which he talked about upcoming Wings remasters and answered questions posted by followers.
But it was a coy comment as he signed off that had watchers scratching their heads.
He said, "There's been some rumours and I think we can give you a clue. Think White House. Think playing... If there is an announcement mentioning the White House, remember where you heard it first."
