Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney may soon embark upon a tour again, in order to overcome his bitter divorce battle with estranged wife, Heather Mills.
According to reports, the singer is desperate to get rid of his split with his campaigner wife and believes that doing live shows may relieve him of all his problems.
A source has revealed that McCartney wants to do concerts in the UK and Europe, because it has been a long time since he had last played live for his fans there.
"Paul is itching to get back and play live. He never even got to perform in the UK or Europe so he's keen to rectify that. He has always loved touring and sees it as the perfect way to putting his problems behind him," Tittle Tattle quoted the source as telling Britain's Daily Express newspaper.
McCartney’s marital problems with Mills had forced him to cancel the European leg of his world tour last year.
Sources say that through his new tour, McCartney will promote his new forthcoming album, which is scheduled for a release this summer on the Starbucks record label, Hear Music.
McCartney is the first artist to sign to the label, and he is leaving Capitol Records with which he had worked on and off for 43 years.
