Sir Paul McCartney loves having famous fans

Sir Paul McCartney has revealed that he still gets starstruck and absolutely loves having celebrities in the audience at his concerts. 

The 'Blackbird' icon performed at Manchester's Evening News Arena on Monday, December 19 as part of his latest tour and told reporters that it's great to have famous fans:

"I always like the celebs coming. I've always been a bit like that. The Beatles used to make fun of me — 'You're a bit starstruck!' and I'd say, 'Come on! It's Prince Philip — he's a Royal!' I have an innocent excitement about it all."

"I knew Wayne Rooney was coming. Rooney, he's not a bad player, my boy. And I hear he plays guitar. Don't tell him but I've got to get his autograph for one of my grandkids. There's always a bit of that for the grandkids. Peter Kay is a great guy and JK is a lovely girl and I'm lucky to know them a little bit. I hope I put a good show on for them."

It was also recently announced that the legendary superstar will release a brand new album in 2012, which is set to be made up of "the songs which inspired the songs”.
