The BBC reports today that Sir Paul has asked his concert promoters to make room for 5,000 more fans at his Liverpool concert. This request comes after learning that Liverpool City Council staff had reserved tickets for themselves the day before they went on public sale and causing a quick sell-out, thus leaving thousands of fans disappointed (see May 2).
Liverpool City Council leader, Mike Storey, has apologized to fans saying that the way the tickets were distributed showed "a lack of judgment". Councilor Richard Kemp, a member of the ruling Liberal Democrat group, added that he was "appalled" and has called for a full inquiry.
Sir Paul's spokesman, Jeff Baker, told BBC Radio Merseyside today:"[Sir Paul] was ecstatic his home town concert sold out so fast. If the gate was to be increased it would be good for those fans who've been unable to get tickets."Sir Paul's proposal will be discussed today by the Liverpool City Council and the Marshall Arts concert promoters.
