Paul McCartney to Play Sirius Show at the Apollo Theater


Leave it to Paul McCartney. He’s upstaged the Beatles-I Tunes announcement. McCartney is going to play the famed Apollo Theater in Harlem on December 13th.

The show is part of a big promo push through Sirius satellite radio for his “Band on the Run” reissue. It’s also to celebrate Sirius’s 20 millionth subscriber.

McCartney at the Apollo? Jeez. That is going to be one historic show.
