Unfortunately, I was a graduate student at the University of Aberdeen three year AFTER Wings played there. Those with a connection to Aberdeen might be interested in knowing that Paul and Denny Laine wrote "Don't Let It Bring You Down" as related in the book Lennon-McCaertney:Together Alone. Paul said "I think we were in Aberdeen, sitting in our hotel bedroom, just before we were going to turn in for the night, and I started plonking out a little tune and it became "Don't Let It Bring You Down." That song appeared three years later on London Town just before I went to Aberdeen A permanent Macca connection to the Granite City in the north of Scotland.

There was no Soily. Just the one encore (Hi-Hi-Hi). Very much an 'end of term' kind of gig.
Two things went wrong. The Long and Winding Road should have been performed with a large painted backdrop (a chair). The song was well underway and no backdrop. McCartney gestures towards the back of the stage and the painting starts sheepishly coming down. An annoyed McCartney then performs a brief 'chatting' gesture with his hand, aimed at the crew in the wings (no pun intended). Live and Let Die quiet opening chord and then 'Bang', one of the pyros goes off at the front of the stage. Macca visibly shocked but carries on. I didn't have a ticket but managed to get in by being a Wings roadie for the day.
