Wings live at Sheffield University

The seventh date of Wings’ first tour took place on 17 February 1972 at Sheffield University in England.

The tour was intended to road test the band through a number of low-key, mostly impromptu performances.

We went off on our little university tour, which was great. It was very ballsy to do, really, I couldn’t think of anything else. It didn’t feel ballsy at the time, it just felt like, well, what else do I do?
Paul McCartney
