Sir Paul McCartney will play his first Scottish concert in almost a decade in December. The former Beatle will perform at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on December 14 – his last visit to Scotland was in 2010.

The 76-year-old will also perform in Liverpool and London as part of his Freshen Up tour.

He said: “There’s nothing like performing in front of your home crowd, especially when it’s been a while.

“I can’t wait to finish the year on such a high by partying in Liverpool, Glasgow and London.

“We’ve freshened up the show since our last time round and we are excited to get to play some of our new songs along side some of the favourites.”

McCartney revealed earlier this week he was returning to the road for the tour, which kicks off in Canada in September.

The UK shows at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on 12th December, the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on 14th December and London’s O2 on 16th December are the star’s first in the UK since his Out There tour in 2015.

Freshen Up will also be the musician’s first outing following the release of his new studio album Egypt Station, which is due on 7th September.

Tickets for the shows are on sale on Monday 16th July.
