Sir Paul told Fox News today that he is planning to tour the United States to perform both his music and his poetry. He told Fox News, "We're going out on tour this spring and summer to arenas." Does this include venues like Madison Square Gardens? Sir Paul replied, "In fact, exactly like that. We'll even do two shows there. And I may include some poetry."
During the tour, Sir Paul will perform both old and new material. He explained, "You have to balance things. When we would go out and play Baby's in Black, the fans would yell for She Loves You. But we thought Baby's in Black was s*** hot. And eventually we were right. You have to do what you want and like too. After all, it can't be all old songs. I'm not the Ancient Mariner."
Sir Paul went on to reveal another bit of inspiration for his song Freedom: "I got it from the clapping at Yankee Stadium. That boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. That's it. We wrote the song about a week before the October 20 show." Sir Paul added that the version of Freedom he will be performing before this weekend's Super Bowl game was arranged by Heather Mills.
