Paul McCartney will stage a benefit concert in New York next month to aid the city's firefighters.
The time and place haven't been determined, McCartney's New York-based publicist said Friday.
A statement quoted the former Beatle as saying he was in New York when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center on Sept. 11.
"I've been here in New York ever since, and in a way, I was pleased to be here to witness all the heroism," he said.
McCartney said he was postponing a concert in Russia: "What I am going to do is to do a concert here in New York within the next month to benefit all the firemen. I also have a connection there, because my father was a fireman in Liverpool during World War II."
