SIR PAUL McCARTNEY has re-arranged his world tour to bring his arena show to a charity concert in London on Thursday night.
The Beatles man booked extra shows on the Continent this week so he could easily get to London for the Teenage Cancer Trust event at the Royal Albert Hall, avoiding costly disruption to his tour.
The Who's Roger Daltrey, organising the annual charity event, said: "Sir Paul has been brilliant. We almost got him last year but he couldn't make the date work.
"He said, 'I'll be there for you next year, Rog' – and here he is.
"He did a few extra shows in Europe to make it work so no one had to foot the bill of getting his show here – and that means a lot.
"To see his full arena show in the Albert Hall will be a once-in-a-lifetime thing.
"He's the most iconic figure in the world."
Good on Macca – it's a great cause.
