Paul Mccartney Ready For Residency

Sir Paul McCartney wants to play a residency in London.

The former Beatle plays a concert at The 02 Arena next Tuesday (22.12.09) and admits he is open to the idea of doing an extended run of shows at the stadium like Prince did in 2007.

When asked if he would play a residency at the stadium, he said: "I quite fancy that. Last time I ever did that was when The Beatles used to do Christmas shows, and it was brilliant because you would be there for a week or two. It was fantastic, just dossing in your overcoat and everything. The opening scene was Rolf Harris announcing us, and we were apparently landing on a helicopter, it was actually a cardboard helicopter, but it appeared to land and Rolf was going, 'Oh, oh, here they are, didgeridoo, here they come, here they come.' "

Paul, 67, also revealed he wanted to play more shows in the UK this year but couldn't because he only decided to bring his 'Summer Live '09' show to Europe at the end of the year.

The 'Get Back' singer - who kicked off his 'Good Evening Europe Tour' on December 2 in Hamburg, Germany, the city where The Beatles honed their live skills - said during an interview on Geoff Lloyd's Absolute Radio Hometime Show: "I came back from America and a lot of people said, 'Oh I hear you've been to America, are you doing any British dates?' I said, 'No,' and they said, 'Oh why not?' So I rung my promoter and said, 'Hey, can we do some English dates and can we play maybe Scotland?' He had a brilliant idea of the Union Jack Tour, it was going to be Scotland, England, Wales, Ireland, but he couldn't get the availability at such short notice. The only thing he could really get firm was The O2, so he built a little European tour around it, and he got Dublin as well."
