More significant was the concert in aid of UNICEF in St. Mark’s Square, Venice in March. At the time there was concern that Venice was gradually sinking into the mud, so when one of Wings’ trucks made a crack in the square the TV cameras homed in on it. MPL’s Alan Crowder had more pressing problems to deal with: “The dressing room was at the back of the square, so the band walked through the audience to the stage. The carabinieri protected the stage, which was about six or eight feet high, until the show started – then they all joined the audience! Trevor [Jones, longtime Wings aide] and I just looked at each other as the two of us cleared people off the stage.
