Sir Paul McCartney is to play one of his most intimate gigs in London next month (Oct13) as part of a Bbc radio showcase.

The former Beatles star will perform in front of just 200 fans at the Bbc's Maida Vale studios on 16 October (13).

The small show will be broadcast to listeners of Radio 6 Music as part of a week-long season of live shows by acts including Manic Street Preachers and Sigur Ros.
