Paul McCartney Got Paid HOW Much To Perform At The Olympics Opening Ceremony!?

| Filed under: Music MinutePaul McCartney

Paul McCartney paid one pound for olympic ceremony performance

Sir Paul McCartney is an international music icon. He's one of the founding members of The Beatles and has gone on to be declared the "most successful composer and recording artist of all time" by Guinness World Records.

That being said, we can't imagine how much it costs to book him for a gig, which is exactly why our minds were blown when we found out what McCartney was paid to perform at the London Olympics Opening Ceremony.

According to sources, the singer was paid ONE million dollars pound!

What!? That's it???

Believe it or not, ALL of the "top talent" were paid the same amount, as a spokesman explained:

"All of our top talent played for free. In order to have a contract you commit to a payment of a pound."

Hey Paul! How ’bout playing a few songs for our next birthday at that price too? Ha!

    Re: perez WHERES MY AVATAR – In law to create a binding contact between two parties there has to be consideration, a movement of something away from one party in exchange for the goods and services of another, so it's just a formality to make the contract legally binding.

    He is awesome no doubt. Did anyone notice the firts few lines of "Hey Jude" he was horribly flat & slightly off key & then he corrected it. Not like I'm some pro just sayin. Or rather asking id anyone else heard that?

    Lady Elton John was paid $1,000,000.00 dollars to perform at Rush Limbaugh's 3rd wedding, making her highness a bigger hypocrite than Perez.
