    Default Macca and Ringo come home for 2008

    It was formally announced today that Ringo is performing at the opening ceremony and Macca later in the year at Anfield. There is to be a ballot to decide who gets tickets and you can only apply for a maximum of 2. You can register for tickets online but be aware you need to have an 08 card for your registration to proceed.

    Here is the link which also includes some classical concerts as well

    Thanks for posting this, munchkim. I am almost inclined to fly over from the United States for Sir Paul's concert at Anfield on June 1, 2008, partly because my sixtieth birthday is next year. I do though have a big work deadline to meet in June so it doesn't really look doable.

    Former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are coming home to celebrate Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture in 2008.


    McCartney is headlining a concert at Anfield Stadium, home of Liverpool Football Club, while Starr is joining forces with Eurythmics member Dave Stewart for "Liverpool The Musical."
    "It's going to be a great year," McCartney promised in a statement on Thursday detailing plans for the northern English city's cultural bonanza.
    "I'm very proud of the city and I look forward to welcoming you all and showing you a good time," McCartney said.
    He is headlining next June's concert which will be broadcast live to a worldwide audience. The full line-up is to be announced later.
    The Liverpool musical was described as "Stravinsky meets Hip Hop" with an eclectic cast ranging from Ringo Starr to the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

    Hmmm. Yes. Starting to cringe at this idea. . .
