        Those were the day, Wings really kicked butt. I saw them in Madison Square Garden !!

          Do you still own the t-shirt?

          What was your favorite moment of the concert?

            My dad, his sister and her boyfriend (who would become my uncle) saw Wings at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl here in Melbourne in November '75. He's still got the ticket and, needless to say, I'm a little jealous he got to see it. Weird thing is, the whole concert is on YouTube from the night they went.

              My nephew-in-law was lucky enough to be at this concert with his dad and he got Paul's autograph. I have a picture of the autograph which is probably as close as I'll ever get to the real thing.

                40 years next week. Saw Wings in San Francisco. Fantastic!

                  Wow. 40 years ago I was a young soldier in Oklahoma and drove down to Fort Worth in May 1976 to see Wings. As a huge McCartney fan, was very nervous; hoping the show was everything I hoped. And of course it was.

                    Anyone been to the shows in Europe in 1972?

                                I Still look good , I STILL GOT IT!! .trouble is no body wants it

                                  This Seattle concert was the first concert I ever attended. I was 11 years old and had completed 6th grade the day before. I was already a very big Beatles and Wings fan, so I really looked forward to this show. I still have strong memories of it, being up in the 300 level seats.

                                  When I met Paul in 2005 at his L.A. book signing, I mentioned to him that this was my first ever concert and he clearly remembered it well by his mentioning the Kingdome by name to me. I've also talked to Denny Laine about this show a couple of times. One of the things he mentioned was when the band walked out on to an upper level area outside the stadium and waved down to the line of people outside. I clearly remember that happening.

                                  Five years ago on this day I saw Paul in Las Vegas. Unfortunately I'm not in Munich for today's show.
