Hamptonite Paul McCartney‘s Rockshow concert film will see a limited release in theaters this month, followed by a DVD and Blu-ray in June. The concert has been restored from its original 35mm film with restored and remastered sound, including a 5.1 mix for the first time.
Rockshow features McCartney and his band Wings during the famous Wings Over the World tour of 1976. The film was released on VHS and Beta in 1981, but this remastered edition will be the first time it has appeared on modern digital formats.
McCartney is featured in an exclusive introduction in the new version of the film, and he will also personally attend a VIP screening at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) on Wednesday, May 15—the same day Rockshow begins its limited theatrical release worldwide.
The DVD and Blu-ray, as well as downloadable versions of the film, will be available Monday, June 10, and Rockshow will be screened at at East Hampton’s Guild Hall on Saturday, August 10. For exact times and other Suffolk County locations, check out rockshowonscreen.com.
Though McCartney and Wings only collaborated together for 10 years, they produced numerous hits, including the classics “Maybe I’m Amazed,” “Live and Let Die” and “Silly Love Songs,” among others. He is reissuing the beloved live album Wings over America on May 28.
For those who just can’t get enough of this legendary musician, rock star and Amagansett resident, follow him on tour this summer. McCartney is traveling the world with his new Out There! tour—and you can see him at the Barclays Center right here in New York on June 8 and 10.
