Paul McCartney's son, James, to play Minneapolis tour date


The son of former Beatle Paul McCartney is coming to Minneapolis to make some music of his own, The Associated Press reports.

James McCartney will play 7th Street Entry on May 5 as part of his 47-date tour of the U.S. in support of his first full-length album, "Me."

Meanwhile, the Star Tribune reported in a separate story that Paul McCartney will play an upper Midwest gig this summer, but it's unlikely that it will be in Minnesota.

James McCartney, 35, is the son of Paul McCartney and his late wife, Linda McCartney.

The musician has previously released two digital-only EPs, "Available Light" and "Close at Hand." He'll release "Me" on May 21.

James McCartney hit the road April 6. The tour features only solo shows with McCartney playing guitar and piano.

McCartney isn't the first child of a member of the Beatles to forge a music career. John Lennon's sons, Julian Lennon and Sean Lennon, each have solo careers and toured; and Dhani Harrison plays guitar and assisted on his father George Harrison's final album.

Dhani Harrison also formed his own band, thenewno2, which recently scored the supernatural romance thriller "Beautiful Creatures."

Zak Starkey, the son of Ringo Starr, like his father is a drummer. He has played with The Who and several other bands.

See an acoustic performance from McCartney below, a song he says was inspired by his father and unconsciously, his mother.
