Paul McCartney to Give Concert on Red Square - 19 March, 2003

Paul McCartney is to hold his first ever Moscow concert on May 24 on Red Square. This was announced today by Nadezhda Soloveva, the managing director of SAV Entertainment, the company that is organising the event. According to Soloveva, the concert will form part of McCartney's forthcoming world tour. The tour, which begins on March 25 in Paris and ends in Glasgow on May 30, will take in 19 cities around the world.

The Moscow concert will be the only open-air gig on the tour. 'We are hoping to receive permission from the authorities to use the entire square for the concert,' said Soloveva. She also added that a screen is planned to be erected outside Red Square and talks are being held on televising the concert.
