Beatle legend Paul McCartney today announced he will bring 2010 to a close with two very special intimate and personal homecoming shows.

Paul and his band are planning two spectacular nights of celebrating and rock n’ roll in London and Liverpool to end the year on a massive high.

The first of these two concerts will see Paul return to London’s Hammersmith Apollo for his first full solo show there in 35 years, his last appearance being with Wings in September 1975; Paul first appeared there with The Beatles on December 24th, 1964 for The Beatles Christmas Show.

The second concert will see Paul return to his roots as he travels home to Liverpool to play the 02 Academy for the first time in his unrivalled career. Paul’s last appearance in Liverpool was in June 2008 at Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium as part of the cities celebration for their year as European Capital of Culture.

Speaking about the forthcoming shows Paul said: "I always love playing to a home audience and for me it’s the perfect way to end the year. We’ve had great fun with the stadium shows this year and we’re looking forward to the more intimate vibe of these ones.

"Christmas is the perfect excuse for everyone to let their hair down and rock out. We are looking forward to celebrating with the good people of London and Liverpool."

Paul played a handful of shows to quarter of a million people in the UK and Ireland this summer when his ‘Up and Coming Tour’ came to Dublin’s RDS, Glasgow’s Hampden Park, the Isle of Wight Festival, Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium and London’s Hyde Park.

Paul’s end of year shows will feature a typically diverse set list, drawing on nearly three hours of the world’s most loved music. Paul’s concert will include songs spanning his entire career, from The Beatles, Wings, solo material and tracks from The Fireman’s 2008 album ‘Electric Arguments’.
