Default McCartney calls for bigger crowd

McCartney calls for bigger crowd

Last Updated: Thursday, 8 May, 2003, 14:25 GMT 15:25 UK

ir Paul hopes promoters of the show in Liverpool on 1 June will agree to open the door to 5,000 more fans.

His call comes after thousands were left disappointed when city council staff got tickets a day before they went on public sale.

An inquiry has been called for after 4,000 out of 5,000 tickets, earmarked for a Liverpool City Council booking hotline, were reserved by staff before the line opened.

The concert at the city's Kings Dock will be the ex-Beatle's 90th and final show of his world tour.

Sir Paul's publicist Jeff Baker said on Thursday said the star "was ecstatic his home town concert sold out so fast".

'Lack of judgement'

"If the gate was to be increased it would be good for those fans who've been unable to get tickets," Mr Baker told BBC Radio Merseyside.

City council leader Mike Storey has voiced his anger over how the authority's staff were able to reserve the tickets 24-hours before they went on general sale.

Mr Storey apologised to fans and described the way the tickets were handed out as "a lack of judgement".

Councillor Richard Kemp, a member of the ruling Liberal Democrat group, has also said he was "appalled" and has called for a full inquiry.

The proposal for increasing the crowd capacity was being discussed on Thursday by the council and London-based promoters Marshall Arts.
