Paul McCartney is helping steer the re-issue of Wings' famed live album 'Wings Over America'.
One of the most commercially successful rock groups of the 70s, Wings made only sporadic forays into the live arena. All that changed in 1976, though, when the band embarked on what would become known as 'Wings Over America'.
A vast North American tour, it matched a lavish stage show to several international hit albums. Resulting in a historic live album, 'Wings Over America' is now set to be re-issued and expanded for a new generation.
Out on May 27th, the new edition of 'Wings Over America' will feature a plethora of bonus cuts. Alongside additional audio, the full package will contain a DVD featuring rare video footage of the band in action.
Initially released on Betamax back in 1980, 'Rockshow' is set to be spruced up to feature on the forthcoming re-issue. Due to be released next month, the re-release of 'Wings Over America' will be accompanied by a special event.
On May 15th, Eagle Rock will partner Specticast for an exclusive screening at more than 500 cinemas - including an event at the BAFTA in London introduced by Sir Paul McCartney himself.
Here's a clip from 'Rockshow'.
