    Extra 11,000 Paul McCartney concert tickets in bid to cover costs
    Apr 15 2008
    by David Bartlett, Liverpool Daily Post



    THOUSANDS of extra tickets are to go on sale for Sir Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Sound concert on June 1 to cover mounting costs, the Daily Post can reveal.

    Liverpool Culture Company is to offer 11,000 tickets on top of the 25,000 already sold for the concert at Anfield to cover a budget increase from around £1.8m to nearly £2m.

    An internal Liverpool Council document, obtained by the Daily Post, reveals these costs are on top of £323,000 spent on the aborted plan to hold the concert in the Salthouse Dock.

    Just been on Roger Philips that Macca's fee is zero pounds. The money is in an escrow account to cover other costs.

    I'm a bit cheesed off - not with Macca but the council. Paid around £67 for a ticket (still not received although credit card debited ages ago) on understanding there would be international stars as well as Macca. Now see we will get "cutting edge local groups" - in other words, cheap semi-pros. Nothing against them but not what we were promised. Would prefer Macca to do whole concert but don't suppose he will. It seems as if the council are determined to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
