SIR Paul McCart­ney is wor­ried his fans might never Come To­gether to see him on stage again.

The star is des­per­ate to get back to play­ing live gigs as his new al­bum is set for re­lease.

But he says the Covid-19 cri­sis has had him con­tem­plat­ing the “pos­si­bil­ity” he “might not play live again”.

Macca, 78, told the BBC: “I look back at the last gig I did in LA last year, and I’m think­ing ‘Uh-oh what if that is the last?’ It would just be great to be in a crowd and not worry and be able to go crazy and lis­ten to a live band, or be the live band. Fin­gers crossed.” Macca also re­vealed Oscar- win­ning di­rec­tor Peter Jack­son has re­cut the 1970 film Let It Be, about The Bea­tles’ last al­bum be­fore they split.

He says it will down­play rows and use up­beat footage.

Sir Paul said af­ter talk­ing to Jack­son: “My mem­ory was it was a very sad time. But he said ‘ I am look­ing at it. It’s a laugh. You guys mak­ing up songs.’ He’s shown me lit­tle bits and it’s great. It re­minds me, even though we had ar­gu­ments, we loved each other.”

Al­bum Macca III is out De­cem­ber 11.
