Sir Paul is planning a pre-Christmas concert in London:"I'm looking at a London gig, not massive but a small gig to have a rock-out before Christmas. I fancy that."On the play list will be songs from his new Driving Rain album as well as some of his classic tunes. Sir Paul's staff is traveling around London, looking for a venue ("the steamier the better") that will hold less than 1,000 people. Under consideration are the 100 Club and the Marquee Club, although the larger Astoria, which can hold up to 2,500 is also a possibility.
Following the success of his Madison Square Garden appearance last month, Sir Paul is anxious to perform live again:"There were a bunch of us - Elton, Billy Joel, Bowie, Jagger, The Who. We did a good show. We pulled it off. We raised a lot of money, made a lot of people happy and gave New York some confidence. For an ordinary Scouser that's great. It makes me very proud."
