Multi-talented Paul McCartney is going to be signing copies of his new picture book Hey Grandude! in London in September.
McCartney will be taking part in the rare signing alongside illustrator Kathryn Durst at the Piccadilly branch of London’s Waterstones on September 6.
The Beatle, during the unusual appearance, will read the story of ‘Grandude’ –“a super-cool Grandad who takes his grandchildren on a whirlwind magical mystery tour, from tropical seas to Alpine mountains, all before bedtime!”.
Taking to his official Twitter handle to make the announcement, the music icon shared a link of his website, where fans and customers will have the chance to purchase one of a limited amount of tickets to attend the event with up to two children or grandchildren to meet him and have a copy of Hey Grandude! signed in person.

The announcement which was made yesterday, August 8, happened to fall on the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ iconic ‘Abbey Road’ photoshoot.
Speaking in a recent chat on his most celebrated song, ‘The Beatles‘, the 77-year-old admitted he can’t remember how to play all the songs. He said that he has to rely on bandmates and listen to some of the deeper cuts that he hasn’t played in a while, with the Fab Four’s back catalogue dating back some 55 years to refresh his memory.
The English singer-songwriter, born ‘James Paul McCartney CH MBE’, has written and co-written 32 songs that have reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and as of 2009 he had 25.5 million RIAA-certified units in the United States.
