The last show of the Wings 1979 UK tour was at Glasgow, on December 17, 1979. It was professionally recorded and, according to “Eight Arms to Hold You: The Solo Beatles Compendium“, Geoff Emerick created rough mixes on this day, “presumably for the band’s use in preparing for the upcoming Japanese tour“.
More work would be spent on mixing this show in April 1980.

With 25 albums of pop music, 5 of classical – a total of around 500 songs – released over the course of more than half a century, Paul McCartney's career, on his own and with Wings, boasts an incredible catalogue that's always striving to free itself from the shadow of The Beatles. The stories behind the songs, demos and studio recordings, unreleased tracks, recording dates, musicians, live performances and tours, covers, events: Music Is Ideas Volume 1 traces McCartney's post-Beatles output from 1970 to 1989 in the form of 346 song sheets, filled with details of the recordings and stories behind the sessions. Accompanied by photos, and drawing on interviews and contemporary reviews, this reference book draws the portrait of a musical craftsman who has elevated popular song to an art-form.
We owe a lot to Chip Madinger and Mark Easter for the creation of those session pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details!
