SpectiCast and Eagle Rock Entertainment partner to bring this digitally remastered classic concert film, ROCKSHOW, back to the big screen in over 750 cities worldwide for the first time in over 20 years.

Philadelphia, PA – SpectiCast, in association with Eagle Rock Entertainment, is pleased to announce ROCKSHOW, a film depicting the legendary Paul McCartney and Wings on their epic 1975-1976 Wings Over The World tour. This galvanizing performance will premiere on the big screen in theaters in the UK on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 and worldwide beginning on Thursday, May 16, 2013. Although filmed on this tour at the enormous Kingdome in Seattle, ROCKSHOW, originally a cut down version of the concert, was not premiered until November 1980 in New York and April 1981 in London.
The film will premiere in the UK on Wednesday May 15 and at BAFTA in London on the same day.  Paul McCartney will be in attendance at the red carpet event. For the rest of the world, fans will have a unique opportunity to see the film beginning the very next day, Thursday, May 16.  The film will be shown at nearly one thousand playdates at theaters in over 700 cities worldwide, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Cape TownSydneyRomeWarsawBucharestPrague, HamburgSan Paolo, Rio DeJaneiro, Buenos Aires, and many other cities across the U.S, Mexico, Asia, Europe, and South America.  These special theatrical presentations will include a bonus 12-minute interview with McCartney.
For Wings Across America, Paul brought with him one the most sophisticated and dazzling rock shows of the mid-Seventies (it was a time when nobody worried about extravagance or expense) and the band would eventually perform to more than 600,000 people at 31 shows in the US and Canada, ending with three mind-bending nights at The Forum in Los Angeles. It’s no exaggeration to say that the demand that greeted Paul McCartney & Wings (Linda McCartney, Joe English, Denny Laine and Jimmy McCulloch) in the spring of 1976 as they embarked on what would become their one and only North American tour was overwhelming.  Having released four consecutive chart busting albums including Red Rose Speedway, Band on the Run, Venus and Mars and Wings at the Speed of Sound – not to mention 1973’s Academy Award-winning James Bond theme “Live and Let Die” – Paul’s solo career was in full flight… and having not performed in the States for 10 years, either solo or with The Beatles, excitement had reached fever pitch.
Now Paul gives fans the chance to be able to immerse themselves in a concert that is destined to live forever.
