From paulmccartney.com, June 18, 2013:
On this day during the ‘Wings Over The World’ tour the band performed at the Community Center in Tucson. As it was June 18th Paul was met at the show with several ‘Happy Birthday’ banners made for him by local fans.
Backstage at the gig Paul was seen celebrating his birthday with a Wings At The Speed Of Sound themed cake.
The birthday celebrations continued after the show with Paul being serenaded by a Mariachi band and then breaking into a piñata.
To me, the photograph was taken backstage after a Wings concert in Tucson in 1976, Paul holding a glass of water was tired, but he’s happy, the performance had gone well… to me the photo is Paul saying in a humble way, ‘I’ve just given my best to the audience a good performance tonight’…Photojournalist Harry Benson, from Paul.
