McCartney’s Halifax gig will be at Halifax Commons, but those hoping for a full-fledged tour might have to hope a little longer. According to McCartney’s official Web site, the Halifax show is merely the latest in a series of one-off performances by the former Beatle.

But one can always hope for a tour. Meanwhile, Halifax is gearing up for what may be the biggest show coming to the town all summer, if not all year.

“The British established this strategic port city to guard against invasion a long time ago,” said Halifax Mayor Peter Kelly. “The enemy never did attack, and today we can happily say that Halifax will openly welcome the British Invasion of 2009.”

Ticket details will be announced shortly.  Click here for Paul McCartney’s Web site.
