        Wow where has the time gone? I was at that show, too! Stevie was a nice surprise. Altho since Paul had already performed Ebony and Ivory earlier in the show as part of the regular set, he and Stevie SHOULD have sung What's That You're Doing instead.

        Saw two other shows on that Forum stand, I think there were 5 total? Plus 3 in Chicago and then a bunch in 1990. Those were the days, I loved that tour.

          I had similar feelings the other week when I realised that it was 40 years since I saw Wings play the final night of their 1975/1976 tour,at the Empire Pool, Wembley. Its amazing (and scary) how quickly the years slip away.

            Yeah 40 Years for WINGS OVER AMERICA for me last June , saw the Kingdome Seattle show , 1976 didnt seem so far in 87 :

              That 89/90 tour was the first time I saw Paul live as well....and because the tickets were cheap (and cost the same for stage front seating to the nose bleed sections, you had a fair chance to pick up a great seat (I believe tickets were $37.50 or so)

                That must have been cool to see both of them together. I saw him a few weeks later at Madison Square Garden and loved it. Hamish did the Stevie Wonder part and did nice job but obviously he was not Stevie Wonder - lol

                  Not only loving those early & earlier tours but I think also loving the age we were back then. Ahh...those really were the days.

                      Believe it or not, only one track on Wings Over America LP came from Seattle..."Spirits of Ancient Egypt"
                      The most tracks (7) came from the Cincinnati concert, followed by Los Angeles (5 tracks).
