Sir Paul McCartney has agreed to perform in Bbc radio personality CHRIS EVANS' English pub if fans raise $1.5 million (£1 million) for charity.
The former Beatle was put on the spot during a phone chat with the host on Wednesday (16Oct13) as he launched a series of intimate concerts at the Bbc's tiny Maida Vale studios in London, and agreed he would be willing to perform at The Mulberry Inn in Chiddingfold if those keen to see him play there stumped up the cash for Children in Need.
Evans, who pulled off a similar stunt earlier this year (13) after asking Take That star Gary Barlow to perform for 25 couples who paid to attend the intimate showcase, asked MCCartney to play a 45-minute set on 28 June, 2014, prompting the rocker to state, "If I'm available, yeah, I will."
The rock icon's daytime gig at Maida Vale on Wednesday, which aired live on Bbc Radio was a return date for MCCartney, who recorded several early sessions with the Beatles there in the 1960s.
Only 200 fans from the 66,000 who had applied for tickets, including actor Simon Pegg, were lucky enough to see him live in such an intimate venue.
MCCartney kicked off his set with Coming Up and also performed Beatles hits Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, Get Back and We Can Work It Out along with tracks from his acclaimed new album New.
