No Fool on the Hill: The Mountain comes to Macca

A mountain in Montana has been temporarily renamed after Paul McCartney.

The former Beatles' singer is currently touring the US as part of his Out There tour and performed in Missoula last night, August 5. To celebrate the occasion the University of Montana and city of Missoula renamed the local Mount Sentinel Mount McCartney.

The mountain has a huge white 'M' on it, which officials said stood for McCartney, for 24 hours.

 "We are thrilled to have a legend such as Paul McCartney playing in our community, “ declared university president Royce C. Engstrom. “This concert not only brings folks from around our great state together in Missoula, but also attracts fans from around the country. We think Washington-Grizzly Stadium is a wonderful place to host a concert of this calibre."
