Today's Liverpool Daily Post reports that on January 30, Sir Paul will launch Liverpool's Capital of Culture year with the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts' 10th anniversary celebration. Liverpool council leader Warren Bradley announced:
"We are looking forward to launching the fourth Capital of Culture themed year - Liverpool Performs - at a joint event to mark LIPA's tenth anniversary. We are particularly delighted that Sir Paul McCartney will be in attendance. It will be a fantastic way to start a 12-month celebration of the city's outstanding track record in the business, art and sporting worlds."
LIPA's founding principal and chief executive officer, Mark Featherstone-Witty, added:
"There are two themes to the event. We want to show the sound achievements we and the students have made and we want to look at the journey the students take from the first day they arrive. The people we have invited back are not just the glittering names, they are the people who have helped us and the people who have become part of our history. This is all about the students."
Sir Paul is currently away on holiday and was unavailable for additional comment.
