Macca: The Concert will come to Blackpool Grand Theatre tomorrow night and it’s home sweet home for one of its cast.Jill Schoonjans produces the show and also plays Linda McCartney in the production, which celebrates the music of Sir Paul McCartney.In the past, Jill has spent many a summer season in the resort as a backing singer to local legend Joe Longthorne and she’s now looking forward to bringing the show home for her family, who live in Rossall.She told The Gazette: “My mum and dad have lived up there for 20 years. I grew up in Manchester but we’ve always had family in Blackpool. I’ve got a lot of friends in that area as well so it’s great to be bringing the show there.“I love Blackpool and I especially love the Grand Theatre, I think it’s one of the most beautiful theatres in the country. I’ve played there many times and it’s always been a great night so it’s absolutely thrilling to be bringing the show to Blackpool.“I know Blackpool audiences are crazy so it’s going to be a great night.”Macca is a concert celebrating the post-Beatles career of Sir Paul McCartney from 1970 to the present day.It also focuses on his time with Wings, in particular their 1975-76 ‘Wings over the World Tour’.
