ASUNCION, PARAGUAY (AP) - Paul McCartney has turned down the offer for a presidential tour of Paraguay's government palace in the capital of Asuncion.
President Fernando Lugo tells reporters he invited McCartney to "to visit the palace of government and take a tour of historic places in the city, but he did not accept" due to tight schedule.
Lugo doesn't hold it against the former Beatle. He said he hoped Paraguayans turn out for McCartney's Tuesday night show. Organizers say all 30,000 tickets have been sold.
