Tour Information

On November 23rd 1979, Wings began a 19-date concert tour of the United Kingdom to promote their album Back To The Egg. The shows were massively successful and even produced a Number 1 hit in the US with a live recording of ‘Coming Up’ from a Glasgow date. The tour had a crew of about forty (modest when compared with previous tours), together with the indispensable four-man horn section of Tony Dorsey, Thaddeus Richard, Howie Casey and Steve Howard. The setlist followed the successful McCartney pattern – a selection from the latest album, Back To The Egg, plenty of Wings classics, some surprise oldies (including a stupendous live version of ‘Live and Let Die’), and, somewhere along the way, a quiet moment or two, with Paul alone at the piano or strumming quietly on an acoustic guitar. By this stage in their career, Wings didn’t have to prove anything – on this tour, it was time to go out and play simply for the pleasure of the thing.
