Wings and the “Popular” Beatle

Now, normally I am more a Harrison guy, I like my Concert for Bangladesh box set on vinyl, but lately I have been listening to some of Paul’s stuff. He does put on a good show. I know he has recently sold out to Starbucks and released his latest album exclusively through their music in-store program, but when he was with his 1st wife, Linda, he kinda rocked. This isn’t required listening, but it does kinda put you into a mood.

Here’s another live show from 1976.
More than two million people attended 66 shows on three continents — Australia, Europe, and North America (where it was known as the Wings Over America Tour and represented McCartney’s first appearances in concert since the last Beatles tour in 1966). Touring Japan was also planned, but was canceled by that country’s authorities because of McCartney’s 1972 Swedish marijuana arrest.
