Sir Paul McCartney wants his own tourism business.

The Beatles legend is keen to start up a sightseeing firm in his home city of Liverpool, North West England, as he wants to “give something back” to the local people who have always supported him.

“I would really love to start a sightseeing business. I have my own magical mystery tours of the city, my own special route I go on and I think other people would love it, too.” He says.

“I want to give something back to the locals.”

And the 69-year-old singer would definitely be able to afford to set up a new company as it was recently revealed he made over $56 million in 2011.

The Hey Jude hitmaker almost doubled his earnings in the past year, after banking $31 million in 2010.

His company made a pre-tax profit of $25 million, while the previous year the figure stood at $17 million.

However, Paul – who tied the knot with third wife Nancy Shevell in London in october – hasn’t increased his spending, with company reports showing he paid himself just $2 million, in comparison to the  $13 million salary he gave himself in 2010.

“McCartney must have picked up a few lucky coins in the past couple of years.” A source says.

“Not only has he got married to a lovely lady, he’s also had a hugely successful world tour and brought out another album.”
