On November 23, 1979, Paul McCartney's band Wings began a 19-date concert tour of the United Kingdom to promote their newest album, Back to the Egg.
It was originally to have been the first leg of a planned world tour, with further stops in Japan, Europe, and America on the horizon. However, it would become Wings' final concert tour after McCartney's marijuana arrest in Tokyo the following year.
Following the tour, Wings teamed up with an all-star cast of rock legends to perform a series of Concerts for the People of Kampuchea at the Hammersmith Odeon near London.
Wings' lineup for the tour was Paul and Linda McCartney, Denny Laine, Laurence Juber, and Steve Holly.
A recording of "Coming Up" from a Glasgow date on this tour was a number one hit in the United States.
