Flying High With Wings

RockshowCaptures tour of 1976 at its zesty zenith


Paul McCartney

(Blu-ray $34.98, DVD $29.98 / Eagle Rock Entertainment)

McCartney and his post-Beatles band, Wings, took their show on the road in a massive 1976 tour that resulted back then in the double album “Wings Over America,” which generated the hit live version of “Maybe I’m Amazed” and also included performances of “Lady Madonna,” “Live and Let Die,” “My Love,” “Silly Love Songs,” “Band On The Run,” “Yesterday.” This documentary, originally released theatrically in 1980 as a pared-down version of the show, chronicles the tour during its stop at the Kingdome in Seattle. Now restored with additional footage to include the whole concert with remastered, remixed and restored video and sound, it’s a tune-filled time capsule of ’70s McCartney mania at its zesty zenith.
