About

From Collectors Music Reviews:

Wings took almost two years off after completing their UK tour in 1973 on July 10th in Newcastle. In the intervening years there were several changes in band personal (original Wings drummer Denny Seiwell was replaced by Geoffry Britton and then by Joe English and guitarist Henry McCollough was replaced by Jimmy McCulloch).
Trips to Lagos, Nigeria, Nashville and New Orleans would yield two critically acclaimed LPs Band On The Run and Venus And Mars. In 1975 Wings scheduled and began rehearsing for what would be their first world tour and what would be one of the biggest rock and roll tours to date.
McCartney catered the show to the current demands of arena rock, something which the early Wings tours eschewed even though McCartney had a hand in creating the phenomena with the Beatles in the first place.
Two album’s worth of new material was rehearsed, some older solo and Wings tunes, and a couple of Beatle tunes for the first time. The setlist was designed the current trend to have an acoustic set in the middle along with the massive sound and light show and, for the first time, playing with a full horn section.
The first date on this massive tour was on September 9th at the 2,300 capacity Gaumont Theater in Southampton.
