Wings live at Salford University

The eighth date of Wings’ first tour took place on 18 February 1972 at Salford University in England.

The tour was intended to road test the band through a number of low-key, mostly impromptu performances. All but one took place at a university, with the shows arranged at short notice on the day.

It was the weirdest thing. There was me, having been one of the world’s most famous people, a member of The Beatles, suddenly playing in this semi-professional band kind of thing.
