Assorted Macca news

- Two dates are set for Paul's spring tour of the U.S. - March 28 at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, AZ and March 30 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. There's also (rather vague and perhaps dated) talk about Macca potentially playing Wrigley Field later in the year. Lastly, the Daily Star, a British tabloid, contends that the ex-Beatle may perform at two UK festivals this summer: Isle of Wight and Hard Rock Calling.

- I haven't seen the news discussed elsewhere, but this article claims that Paul will be receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Paul is the only Beatle who hasn't been given the honor. Read the piece carefully, though, and take note of how obvious most of the details are (i.e., "McCartney will reportedly be given the star when a date is arranged for him to unveil it."). Clearly. Such statements, along with the lack of broader coverage, lead me to believe that the report is premature, even if not wholly inaccurate.

- Ever the animal-rights activist, Paul has expressed his hope that the hunting ban in England and Wales will not be reversed if Tories take over after the next election.

- Heather Mills: ethical spendthrift?
