(Newser) – A spring gig at a Las Vegas casino featuring Sir Paul MCartney sold out in a blink-of-an-eye seven seconds, reports the Telegraph. The former Beatle will rock the rafters for 4,000 fans next month at the opening of the New Joint at the Hardrock Hotel and Casino. The hurricane ticket sale last month must be some kind of record—but the Guinness Book of Records doesn't track such events, said a spokeswoman.
