Beatles member and all-round legend, Paul McCartney, could play in Dublin for the first time in 10 years for a special gig.

No exact date has been confirmed but according to the Sunday World, McCartney was inspired to do one of his infamous "guerilla gigs" after he saw a picture of the plaque that commemorated the two concerts The Beatles played in the Adelphi Cinema on Middle Abbey Street on November 7, 1963.

The owner of Vicar Street, Harry Crosbie, sent him the picture.

“I sent him a photo of the plaque and I got an answer back saying he was absolutely delighted.”

“He came back to me and said that Vicar Street is top of the list for the next one.”

Instead of tickets, concert-goers will be asked to make donations with all proceeds going towards helping the homeless.

Crosbie has said that he met McCartney's daughter, Stella, at a party and discussed it with her.

He said the gig would be promoted by Peter Aiken of Aiken Promotions and also revealed RTÉ veteran and legend Gay Byrne would MC the gig.

Fingers crossed that this actually happens!
