It’ll be called McCartney Eye to coincide with new DVD

The London Eye could be renamed the McCartney Eye in tribute to ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney.

The tourist attraction will be redefined for a short period to coincide with the release of The McCartney Years DVD in November.

‘The artwork for the DVD cover is a stylised close-up of Sir Paul’s eye – and that got the team thinking,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘It occurred to them that the other most famous eye in the world was, of course, the London Eye and they immediately tried to work together.’

And Macca, 65, may even play a special gig.

‘It’s ambitious but his people are determined to make it happen and Sir Paul may even perform a one-off show in one of the pods to make it even more special,’ the source says.

‘Macca loves London and to be the face and name of the Eye – albeit just for a short time – would be a massive honour that he would cherish.’
