Concert promoter Harold MacKay tells CBC and CTV that there isnt enough time to organize a concert featuring the former Beatle at the Halifax Common on Canada Day.

The last concert held on the Common in September 2006 attracted 50,000 fans to see the Rolling Stones.

MacKay says they were impressed by the venue.
