I have some questions about the song "Band On The Run."

 

Is it true that for the Red Square performance of this song, that the first two parts of the song are omitted? 'Cos that's all I can find on YouTube at the moment, are the short 3-minute versions (going straight to the third part).

 

 

I also want to know whether or not the first two parts of this song were omitted from other live performances of this song?

 

And now, on to the synthesizer solos. Here is a demo of them being performed on a Moog Rogue synthesizer (the Minimoog was the original one).

 

Thank you,

I don't have any info on whether he truncated the song in Red Square, but Wings used to perform the whole thing - as does McCartney still. Here's what I found out:

BOTR was the first song in the 'Band electric set' part of the concert (see Setlist.fm listing). That suggests it wasn't a segue from another song.

I suspect the YouTube clips are taken from the DVD, which mixed behind-the-scenes and other footage with shots from the concert. I've not seen it but apparently quite a few of the songs were truncated.

"Although you don't get full songs in any of the Red Square concert, here's the song list: Getting Better, Band On The Run, Can't Buy Me Love…"
