A quick trip to the Hardrock Cafe for a party and surprise benefit concert for ‘Release’ followed. With no cameras etc. the whole thing was looser, and so more together(?) About two hundred people – at £5 a head, had a really good time.From Wings Fun Club newsletter #1
Wings played their first ever live performance in London at the Hard Rock Cafe in the West End, on Sunday 18th March 1973. Technically it was the 19th between 12.25pm to 1.30am. Seats for the “Charity Brawl” were priced at £5 and included a burger and ice cream meal.
The support group for the entire [1973 UK ]tour was pub rock band Brinsley Schwarz who Paul and Linda asked to be on the tour after seeing them perform at the London Hard Rock Cafe’s opening night a few weeks previously.
