BBC to air Paul’s Liverpool Sound concert.

It looks like the BBC are getting in on the fun with Liverpool as the European Capital of Culture this year.  They will be broadcasting Paul McCartney’s return to Liverpool.  It looks as if the concert will be broadcast as well as a slew of behind the scenes interviews, and all-access goodies.

  • Paul’s Liverpool Sound concert will air on the BBC on a six-day delay at 7-8 p.m. June 7.
