Macca Won't Follow in The Footsteps of The Rocket Man or The Boss

Written by Chief Editor.

Paul McCartney has dismissed rumours about doing a residency in Las Vegas like Sir Elton or a show on Broadway like Bruce Springsteen.

 
He admitted some people would like him to do it, ''as they say I've got plenty of stories and plenty of songs, but one of the things that's holding me back at the moment is that Bruce has just done it, you know? It feels a bit like, 'Oh, suddenly, I'll do it now then!' 
 
''So I think that's made me a little reluctant to follow in his footsteps or follow a trend. The idea is OK, but I think I'd just prefer to play with the band to a bigger audience, or even smaller--I don't mind little clubs. I do a solo segment in the middle of my shows at the moment and to do a whole show like that, I'm not sure I fancy it. It might be a little bit like too much hard work.''
 
''As for playing Vegas,'' the former Beatle told British GQ, ''that's something I've been trying to avoid my whole life. Definitely nothing attracts me about the idea.
 
''Vegas is where you go to die, isn't it? It's the elephant's graveyard.''
