ROCKSHOW, a film depicting the legendary Paul McCartney and Wings on their epic 1975-1976 Wings Over The World tour is coming to a cinema near you.
This galvanizing performance will premiere on the big screen in theaters in the UK on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 and worldwide beginning on Thursday, May 16, 2013. 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.
The film will premiere in the UK on Wednesday May 15 and at BAFTA in London on the same day. Paul McCartney will be in attendance at the red carpet event.
For the rest of the world, fans will have a unique opportunity to see the film beginning the very next day, Thursday, May 16. The film will be shown at nearly one thousand playdates at theaters in over 700 cities worldwide, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Cape Town, Sydney, Rome, Warsaw, Bucharest, Prague, Hamburg, San Paolo, Rio DeJaneiro, Buenos Aires, and many other cities across the U.S, Mexico, Asia, Europe, and South America. These special theatrical presentations will include a bonus 12-minute interview with McCartney.
For Wings Across America, Paul brought with him one the most sophisticated and dazzling rock shows of the mid-Seventies (it was a time when nobody worried about extravagance or expense) and the band would eventually perform to more than 600,000 people at 31 shows in the US and Canada, ending with three mind-bending nights at The Forum in Los Angeles.
Now Paul gives fans the chance to be able to immerse themselves in a concert that is destined to live forever.
Tickets for ROCKSHOW are available at participating theater box offices and online at http://www.rockshowonscreen.com. This digitally enhanced film event will be screened in over 750 select theatres across the world.
