Classic Concert: Paul McCartney and Wings Live at Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne 1975

Paul McCartney and Wings, ‘Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne, Australia’

Recorded live on the 13th November, 1975, from the same tour that gave us, ‘Wings Over America’ (different leg). The material is mainly from the albums, ‘Band On The Run’ and ‘Venus And Mars’, but also giving us a little taste of what was to be released on ‘Wings At The Speed Of Sound’, the tour was also the first time they played Beatles tracks.

This show was recorded in full by Australia’s Channel 9, televisual broadcaster. The concert has been release previously as several audio bootlegs and on video with inferior quality.

In April 2019 an upgrade of the complete video was posted on YouTube – This was posted without the kanji subtitles that were present on the original Eastern broadcast (apparently showed in Japan as an excuse to fans who wouldn’t get to see them) so maybe it have been lifted from the original Channel 9 recordings.

Maybe not as good as the later 1976 shows (Wings over America), but a great historical document with a band having fun and being whipped into shape by McCartney.

Highlights: The long Lady Madonna, Call me back again and a very fine Maybe I’m Amazed.

This is a great find, enjoy.

Great Setlist!
