Is Paul McCartney about to announce a tour of the UK or Australia? The Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity is auctioning tickets and a meet-and-greet to a McCartney concert on eBay that bidders from all over the world, including those countries, can compete for. But no dates in either of those two countries have yet to be announced.
The auction winner will receive a signed “Wings over America” deluxe box set, two show tickets, soundcheck access and a meet and photograph opportunity with McCartney at the show.
The Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity, which is sponsoring the auction, said in a statement, “We need to raise 50 million every year to help rebuild and refurbish Great Ormond Street Hospital, buy vital equipment and fund pioneering research. Amazing things happen at Great Ormond Street Hospital every day. With your help we can keep the magic alive for our patients and their families.”
Anyone in the U.S., Europe, Canada, Australia and Japan can enter the auction, according to the eBay listing. The charity said that travel and accommodations to the show are not included and that the winner can bank the prize for a show date in the future.
But if you're in the UK (or Australia), you have to be wondering if the opportunity to use the prize is going to be very soon.
