McCartney to play iTunes festival

iTunesIn lieu of a worldwide tour it looks like Paul is playing several promotional spots with his secret gigs and some one-off festivals here and there.  We can add one more live performance to his itinerary.  It looks like he is going to make a UK apeparance at the iTunes music festival on July 5th.  It seems to be an ongoing festival throughout July.  Too cool.

The overall festival lineup looks promising.  We’ll keep you posted as more details filter out.

Would a full-blown McCartney tour be too much to ask?  I’m really chomping at the bit to hear House of Wax performed live.

Here’s what we’ve read.

Paul McCartney has been announced to play the iTunes Festival in London at the Institute Of Contemporary Arts on July 5.

The Beatles legend will join up to 60 acts playing at the 350 capacity venue every night in July.

Other new acts added to the line-up include The Go! Team (6) and Aqualung (21).

Kasabian will close the festival with a headline slot on July 31.
