Mccartney Under Fire For Playing At Rival Soccer Grounds

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has outraged fans in his native Liverpool, England - by agreeing to play a concert at the ground of his favourite soccer team's rivals. The former Beatle, 65, is due to perform at Liverpool Football Club's Anfield stadium on 1 June (08) to celebrate the city being named 2008's European Capital of Culture - despite declaring himself a supporter of the opposing local team, Everton. He says, "It is always lovely for me to go back to Liverpool and play for the home crowd. I am looking forward to that, it should be cool, even though I am in Everton fan officially. When it comes to the crunch, my dad was born in Everton."
