Band on the rerun: Wings reissue hit-heavy 'Rockshow'

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Wings are on the wing again.

Paul McCartney's post-Beatles enterprise, one of the most successful bands in U.K. history, is enjoying a 21st century rebound thanks most recently to the May reissue of live album Wings Over America and now to the return of Rockshow on DVD and Blu-ray.

Live concert film Rockshow, shot in 1975 and 1976 during Wings' biggest tour, is making its DVD and Blu-ray debut on Eagle Rock Entertainment. Filmed at shows in Seattle, New York and Los Angeles, the film initially was released on Betamax and later on laserdisc. It premiered in November 1980 in New York and April 1981 in London. The new longer version was restored from the original 35mm film with remastered sound and includes a 5.1 mix.
