Product Description

In 1975 and 1976 Paul McCartney and Wings undertook the epic Wings over the World tour, the largest scale tour they would ever undertake as a band. From this tour came both the legendary “Wings over America” triple live album and the concert film “Rockshow”. Although filmed on this tour at the enormous Kingdome in Seattle, “Rockshow”, originally a cut down version of the concert, was not premiered until November 1980 in New York and April 1981 in London. It was released on Betamax and later on laserdisc. Now for the first time the complete full length concert is being made available fully restored from the original 35mm film and with restored & remastered sound, including a 5.1 mix for the first time. This is Paul McCartney and Wings live on stage in a concert that is destined to live forever!

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
ROCKSHOW:

The songs of Rockshow first appeared on the 1976 triple live album Wings Over America, which reach No. 1 on Billboard 200 chart. The footage of the 1976 American Tour was not assembled for three years, and was not released in cinemas until 1980. An edited version was released on Betamax in 1981. Finally, in 2013, the full-length version of Rockshow is finally available on blu ray and DVD.

VIDEO:

Rockshow is presented on blu ray, courtesy of Eagle Vision (an imprint of Eagle Rock Entertainment) and MPL (Paul's publishing entity), with a MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. The entire concert was assembled from various sources, including the now demolished Seattle Kingdome. Without the high tech wizardry that regularly accompanies today's live concert video fare, things look at least decent, if not overwhelmingly fantastic. The entire video is rather soft. Some unfortunate lighting choices, including lots of red, rob the image of significant fine detail. But the concert is very well covered by 1970s' standards, and best of all, this was filmed in the pre-MTV era. (4/5)

AUDIO:

Rockshow features both a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix as well as an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 stereo track. There has been reportage that the backups for this concert were in fact prerecorded in a relatively early usage of playback technology. Whether or not that's actually the case, the bottom line is that you can barely hear many of the backups during many tunes. (Like the recent Super Bowl Half Time Show, pre-recorded backing and instrumental tracks were used, while the artists sang live – like singing karaoke) On the other hand, lead vocals here are crystal clear and brilliantly reproduced. The 5.

I was beyond ecstatic when I found this was released on Blu-Ray and DVD, I had seen clipits of this concert since I was a child. To see it in it's entirety is amazing. Paul McCartney has so many things past and present that need released like this
Quality is amazing and packaging excellent

Hello

I'm happy to have the remastered version but I'm very disapointed that the Paul McCartney team didn't notice that the bass sound comes and goes frequently. I bought the DVD and it's very annoying as a problem.

I hope they will fix the problem. I still have my bootleg version on DVD I bought on Ebay. The show is incomplete but at least I have not the sound problem.

It's the first time that Paul releases a product that does not meet the high quality standards.

Song setlist : 10/10
Picture : 8/10 (but for a show that was not filmed in HD, it is great)
Sound : 6/10 (just because the bass comes and goes frequently)

I saw Wings in Detroit during the Wings Over America tour in '76. One of the best McCartney concerts (except for the dreaded feedback on some of the speakers) until the 2002 tour. Anyway, I bought the Blu-Ray looking forward to watching this concert. As the sound goes, it was great, the band really rocked. As for the picture quality, I was a little disappointed. Many of the crowd scenes were very grainy. Close ups of the band looked good, especially McCartney, could not believe how young he was and how much energy the guy had (still, he was almost 32). I really thought on Blu-Ray the concert would look fantastic, it did, except for the several grainy shots. I suppose even with today's technology, depending on how the concert was filmed, McCartney's people could only do so much. As for the music, it sounded fantastic, better than I remember. This band rocked on stage, some songs sounded better than in the studio. Still, I am grateful they released the entire concert, with all the songs included. Actually, I watched this concert and right after, watched the "Wings Over America" documentary, "Wings Over The World" (the '76 tour). What a combination!!! Now, I am beginning to under why my younger cousin (age 12) said back in '76, Wings are better than The Beatles. (Of course, he was wrong, but, I won't hold that against him.) Many thanks to McCartney for releasing this great concert.

Hello Amazon. I bought this DVD for my husband. He loves it. Very good music and nice to see them performing. It was nice to see Linda in it as well. I just wish it had my favorite song on it. "Uncle Albert" It wasn't. Oh well it is still awesome.

Thank you,

Edith Gaspar

I've been hoping for this film on BluRay or any format since the 1980's. you don't have to be a McCartney fan to live this - what a great show. Excellent presentation on disc, you'll love it!
