Want a taste of Paul McCartney live before his July show in Ottawa? Or perhaps you’re one of many people who didn’t get a ticket to the concert, the fastest sell-out in the history of Scotiabank Place.
McCartney fans can whet their appetite, or find consolation, in Rockshow, the Paul McCartney and Wings concert film that will come to Cineplex theatres in Ottawa in a couple of weeks.
Rockshow was recorded on Wings’ 1976 tour, the same one that produced the live album Wings Over America. The movie includes 30 songs recorded in New York, Seattle and Los Angeles, including Jet, Band on the Run and Live and Let Die. Also on the setlist are Beatles’ classics including Yesterday, The Long and Winding Road and Lady Madonna.
In Ottawa the film will be screened at 7:15 p.m. on May 15 and May 22 at the SilverCity cinemas in Gloucester and the Coliseum in Ottawa west. Get more information at the Cineplex website. Tickets, $14.95 for adults, are available online or at theatre box offices.
